'89 + '91 collection

So here are my axe's... wasn't quite sure where to post since there's 2 sigs and 2 RG's but since they've been "jemified", thought this section would be appropriate.
Some of you guys have seen the other guitars in seperate threads but i've never taken the chance to take group shots... til earlier today... so here there are, enjoy









Since these pix are updated, the axes specs have some sort of update.

UV777GR: had an Evo7 in the bridge... moved that to the neck and replaced that with a D-Activator7. Got a green switch tip to match the green knobs.

RG550PN: replaced YM-50 switch; rather loud pop between switches. Forgot to take out the Ultex and black Jazz III's beforehand...

RG760DG: Replaced stock 5-way (VLX53) with Schaller Megaswitch E-model. Also replaced Evo bridge with an X2N (thanks wade!)

JEM777VBK: got a new B/G/B pickguard with lowered volume position. Replaced worn tuner machine heads.

Re: '89 + '91 collection

Nice guitars...reminds me of:



Been playin' a JS1200 for about 2 months...decided to give it a rest and rake away at the ol' '91 570 for a few...it's still a great guitar!

Beautiful! On the last Shot it looks like the UV is scalloped downwards the 15th fret.

grüße (:

Re: '89 + '91 collection

Thanks for the comments guys!

Gudster: it's actually purple but I guess it becomes pink with sunlight! hehe

Kurac: yep! did that like a few weeks after getting the UV back in '01...

nuno: oh ya... it was a PITA to install one but well worth the grip

waylay: the X2N really surprised me... I was expecting louder ground noise and uncontrollable feedback but it didn't do either! It's a good thing as I'm a few steps closer to nailing Schuldiner's tone haha.

CosmicDebris: indeed... its kinda like having 4 gf's at the same time, without the drama and bs haha :P
