Re: FrankenRG version 2. Claro Walnut Topped RG
Update on the guitar. No new pictures, but I've put in a stewmac golden age pickup and shielded/wired it with master volume, master tone. Tone is fine, what I'm really loving is the quality of the tremolo action. The bar feel is similar to my friends original edge, it has some decent flutter, and here's the best part, even when floating, it tolerates double stops without making the other strings going noticeably out of tune. I don't know how it accomplishes this, but it's not nearly as pronounced as my floyds. I usually block off my floyds and make them dive only, but with the wilkinson, 9-42s, and 2 springs in the straight configuration, it's very stable.
Anyways, thought y'all like to know. The trem is great with locking tuners and a little oil on the nut.
