New Guitar Day!!!

Looky what I got in the mail today from that evil auction site. My very first Universe. If it looks like its covered in dust, hair and grime, that's because it is! Looked lake CRAP when I got it, but that's no problem for me and my wondertech from St Cloud Music in San Antonio. Now that is clean and ready to go, I find the neck VERY thin. I like that alot!. I have an RG1527 and it is not nearly as thin. This thing is easy to play.

Before pics are below!

Re: New Guitar Day!!!

Thanks for the replys. No, no filler on the headstock. I think it was a pawn shop sticker. Its gone now!.
