Bought myself a couple of new toys (pics inside)

The first one is RG2550EX (-03) with the bridge PU being swapped to EMG-81 and the neck for Evolution. The 5-way switch is also changed to a 3-way one and 1 tone control added.



The second one is RG2550EX (-04). All parts original.



And the last new one is Jackson Soloist SL-1 (-87). All parts original:



Hereīs also couple of other guitars I bought a couple of weeks ago:

RG470FM limited edition (Edge Pro bridge):



and RG2570EX. All parts original:

1. Itīs simply bridge, middle, neck as you turn the switch from bridge towards neck.

2. The EMG sounds really heavy as you can imagine. The Dimarzio sounds a bit underpowered than usual because the pickups work with the same pots, but itīs good for lead playing.

i know the EMG doesnt split, but why not leave the original 5 way so you could have the neck+mid position too?

In any case, shes a real looker

Then Iīd have one position doing nothing in the selector and I donīt want that. I like the current switching so Iīll just leave it as it is.

Yes, they are! I can honestly say that that soloist is probably the best guitar I own at the moment!

By the way, hereīs another purchase I did at the same time with the soloist :



That bigger small tom used to belong to Nicko McBrain .
