Finally!...2 months!...RG 2550EGK!
...box and all!...man, I tell you, I might be on ludes but this guitar sure makes a difference in how I play!...all my licks on my old battle axe slide out of this thing like buttah!
I just love this guitar. I know the Jems and higher ups are fine instruments, but this will do me just fine!
I plugged it in the store to make sure it worked great, and it did. I did notice some buzz on the open low E and a few lower fretted notes on the A string.
I brought it up to the guys, but they said that the setup with low action makes NO buzz almost impossible. I figure you can squeeze a lil more sustain without the buzzing, but it's not such a huge problem.
I love the color, and the pickguard is unique..not that shabby, but yes I'll get the mirror guard eventually..probably when I upgrade the pickups....which sound to my ears fantastic. I'm just getting used to humbuckers in the neck position...I still prefer the single coil there, but that's what my old guitar is for!...Yngwie!....plus, no volume drop from going bridge to neck using 2 humbuckers, so that's bonus.
I will probably post some pictures, but you all know what one looks like, and I'm just too busy playing right now. All I can say is I should have bought a higher end guitar YEARS ago. This thing is just amazing, and it stays in tune quiet nicely! I don't like new strings, but they'll get broken in soon enough....sounds kinda bright for me right now.
..hmm, what else....I'm thinking of putting on strap locks, but the fitted case seems to not like thick attachments to the posts..not sure what I'll so in that case.
Just wanted to say to all how happy I am with this amazing guitar!
