Re: The desire to tinker. Like GAS but different.
Well Mike, It's not 'my guitar' until I mod it.
It's my regulation.
The very minor mod is pickup change.
the major mod : large scale face-off surgery.
the only guitar I did not mod : my J custom RG 9670. I'm dying to see it with cream pickups combo, but I hold my self from touching it. So i'll leave the black stock combos on it.
Now I'm toying with idea of refinishing my RG 655 FSO. it's crazy really...
To safe the 655 from total annihilation, I need to find myself a decent RG 550 to mess with.
Because I think I need some 'strat looking" RG , like this :
black, white pickguard, HSS, white pickups combo, maple neck, unfinish headstock, chrome hardware.
It's my bad habit.
