mods on a RG 1527?

Hi!
I got a RG 1527 and with the DiMarzio Blaze custom and Blaze neck I think it will sound great.
But I am still wondering what mods would make it even better or one-of-a-kind.
For example I thought of the JPM-decals you can get at universaljems.com.
Any other ideas, any experiences?

Thanks!!!!

Install a Varitone Plus Switch for Guitar switch, from has-sound.com, strip the paint and stain the thing red.

Personally, I've always thought a three-way toggle coupled with a push/pull coil tap on the tone pot was the most versatile setup you can get from 2 humbuckers...

What year is your 1527 made?
I cannot remember any 1527 with an offset-dot-neck.

Re: mods on a RG 1527?

It is actually just a 1527 body. The neck and all the other hardware came from an RG7CT that I had purhased pretty cheap and just wanted something different. I had to rout the trem cavity a little bit for the lo pro trem to fit....not alot though. There are no intonation issues whatsoever contrary to other posts about the retrofit.

Damn that hairband is such a good answer for tapping, don't know why I didn't think of that years ago!!

The second would look awesome, and the colour may well go with the hairband .
