Re: My guitars.

Great!

That one in the middle looks like a nice little project actually.

I know!

Next week there'll be a B/W/B pickguard and white pickups. Chrome volume/tone as well.

Then, when I've time, I'll paint the body solid black.

I'm sure it will look nice with purple body, black pickguard, chrome knobs and white HSH pups. The only thing's that the body's paint is quite cracked here and there.

I don't have a third stand. Gotta get one soon.

Any ideas why the FP weights a lot more than this new one? I'm quite sure that even with all the electronics and pups it will still be lighter than the JEM. Both bodies are basswood and the necks are quite the same weight.

More pics will come tomorrow and later next week. I'm getting the pickguard tomorrow.
Pups and some other stuff will come later. At first I'm putting in some cheap pups. Later I'll get real ones

Re: My guitars.

Pickguard arrived. An RG550 pickguard was a perfect match for the RG470 body.

Re: My guitars.

I think that will look great, too bad you couldn't get the headstock painted the same color and a mirror pickguard:

Re: My guitars.

I like it! That "odd" color makes it very cool! Can't wait to see the finished product.
