Doesn't look pink at all in the last pic, does stand out a bit more than the JS anyway

Nice!
From your pics, it looks like you got a nice dark piece of rosewood.

That is damn sweet! If I had the scheckles and didn't already have a 20th I'd probably go for that.

Thanks! Yeah, they're KRK Rokit 5s, really good. When I first got them I sat for hours just listening through songs and thinking, "so this is how they meant them to sound!"

The rosewood has a nice color, and the neck feels awesome, on par with any prestige or signature model I'd say. And the pink is actually painful for the eyes.

That looks killer. The board looks super dark. Have you noticed any flaws or anything? Looks great from the pics. Makes me anxious to get mine.

Re: Another RG1XXV ;)

Well, I've just changed the strings, oiled the board and given it my setup, haven't played it enough to give a complete verdict though. I'll play it with the band tomorrow and test it out good. The acoustic sound of this one is very heavy, lots of low end.

The trem, it's not an Edge, but it works. Having used only Edges for the past couple of years it will take some getting used to, but the feel is similar. I threw out the ZPS-thing immediately.

No big flaws, no black spots. Perhaps the J-customising of the fret ends could have been a bit more J-custom, but its still good. And 1000% better than most other guitar brands.

Re: Another RG1XXV ;)

Okay, it's been tested out right today, played it for about 6 hours. My bandmates said, and I quote; you need a big set of balls to go on stage with a guitar THAT pink.

Anyways, it holds up perfectly. Pickups sound great live, and the trem stays in perfect tune as it should. The neck is very comfortable and doesn't fatigue the hand. But take out the ZPS, just doesn't feel right with it in.

I'm very happy with it!
