Re: I bit the bullet...

I was real close to buying that and 'parting out' the backstop, but the UPS guy already thinks I'm a freak so I let it go. That and I'm running low on food...

Nice guitar. Very comfortable to play. Don't get rid of the backstop. Only adds to the value of a very nice condition guitar. You can always adjust it so it isn't affecting the trem at all.

I looked at that one too but condition was rougher than I like. It's your guitar but I would keep the backstop. Definitely adds to the value to the guitar if you sell it around here.

Re: I bit the bullet...

I dont think I will ever sell it to be honest. So the back stop will just rot away... may keep it for when I get a DY or SK

Re: I bit the bullet...

I was going to ask what year it was because I wasn't familiar with the color. Then I decided to look through Rich's catalogs LOL.

It's been a long time since I've given any thought to the Radius line. These have an Ultra-like neck profile don't they?
