A cool swirled RG

Check out this cool swirled RG. I think it's pretty cool.

Re: A cool swirled RG

Nice, though I think if I was spending the money to do all of that I would have swapped the TRS trem for an OFR at the same time

I remember seeing that on the bay. I almost bidded on it but then decided not to. Cool swirl though.

You know, I never even noticed that until you pointed it out. I was just looking at the swirl. But, the Lo-trs ain't that bad? Is it? It looks cool...
Anyway, I think there are like a thousand thread regard whammy bars, so I'll stay on topic.

I really like the matching pickup coils. Really cool.

Kind regards,
Myst and rain

No. I saw it on eb*y. I would never buy this guitar. It looks cool, but, you know, it's not like it's the greatest guitar around.

Nice swirl, but the trem has got to be replaced.

Isn't it the opposite, like putting old steel rims on a Ferrari?

+1
that always kills me when i see a nice paint job or even worse a really nice swirl like this on a RG4** or lower model. if it was at least re-routed and an Edge of some kind installed it would'nt be so bad but the TRS......why? what a waste.
killer swirl - ALMOST rivals the infamous BMC, almost.

Re: A cool swirled RG

It's no biggy, just drop in an OFR. Would be fine.

And get some white/blue pups instead of those toppers - if thats what those are... the blue on on the bridge pup is way misaligned
