    This may have been the quickest, most impulse swap I’ve ever done. Messaged the seller, just over 2 hrs later I was home with it.

    Aqua-burst, reverse headstock, maple board, 5 piece neck, Monorail bridge.

    He upgraded the tuners to open gear locking Hipshot, and put a SD Custom 5 in the bridge. Probably gonna put a PAF7 I have laying around in the neck, and maybe a Superswitch.

    Will take some pics tomorrow.

    Spent all day hanging gutters and refinishing an old table for my wife, so no time for pics :(

    However, I was not getting along with the SH-14 at all, so I pulled it to try swapping in an Alnico 8 magnet. Turned out to be an SH-6 Distortion. Loved it when I was younger, hate it now. Had a few recently in very different guitars, all sounded like twangy icepicks.

    The mag swap turned into a full pickup swap, and the Imperium and PAF7 sound even better here than in my RG. I used an Ibanez 5 way and am very happy with the range of tones.
