it's ALIVE it's ALIVE!!!! 540pII

Bought it as a project guitar, got it painted yellow, put everything together. Guessed on the wiring, and miraculously it worked!!! C2 pickups has shocked me. Ibz/usa series are so inconsistent. Sometimes I'll find one that just blows me away,and sometimes they sound terrible. It has the original F3 too. They sound VERY good, I won't swap out. Trem sits a bit high, I don't know why but it's so much higher than all my other Ibanezes. Anyways enjoy!!!

Cool man! The yellow looks good. Almost looks like a Halo body.

Re: it's ALIVE it's ALIVE!!!! 540pII

Do the edges of the nut set flush with the edge of the neck? I have one, which the neck is slightly wider than the nut. I am thinking it isn't the correct nut.
