And here's what my RG looks like after the swap with Kenny...



Thanks Kenny. Good deal both ways.

I'm just guessing here, but that sure does look like Kirk's CT :biggrin:

Kirk's CT looked like green stuff with dead presidents on it, until I magically transformed it into a Green Swirl paint job on an Ibanez Jem. *They call it a GMC!

That actually does look better IMHO. The Amber finish with the gold hardware really watered down the look of that guitar.

Hey, that really is much cooler looking. Wish I would've thought of that...

this might be the best trade ever...even swap, both parties end up happy and with better looking guitars

we lucked out that we lived close enough to eachother to make tthe trade happen so fast and in person...

That looks sweet.......

Just one question, have you ever concidered trim rings for the humbuckers?

Doesn't look like a trim ring would fit on the neck bucker.

If it was a 520 I would consider mounting rings. I hate the look of a bare middle pickup next to mounted humbuckers. Plus I would lose the direct mount of the neck and bridge pups. If I do anything to this guitar it would be to put a clear pickguard on it. Even though it's a foto-flame top, it's so good looking that I don' want to mess with it.
