Welllllll...Its been a good couple of days at the Mustaine-who? house!
First...I picked up a 1990 RG550 from a guy over on Rig-talk. Got it failry cheaply, as it was all un-wired. Since I knew I'd be re-wiring it anyways...I went for it. Its a player, and properly "relic'd". Still needs fret leveling and intonation set-up, but I set the action and neck relief and it kills!! Soooo...Happy New Belated Guitar Day!
The original blue mirror Pick-guard looked like poo, so I went to e-fail and bought a gorgeous white perloid pick-guard with tree-of-life engraving with matching truss rod cover. Soooo...Happy New Pick-Guard Day!
I knew I wanted something modern for pick-ups, so I went with a Dimarzio Crunch Lab in the bridge. Love it! Its everything the SD Full Shred should be. Thicker...nicer top end...fuller mids. I stuck a SD Distortion neck model in the neck, but I'm not too crazy about it. I'm gonna replace it with either a SD Full Shred bridge or a Dimarzio Liquifire. Soooo...Happy New PuPs day!
And then yesterday...I was scanning CL for deals, and ran across a Mesa slant 4x12 w/V30s for $450. I had picked up one about 6 weeks ago for $400, but had to sell it to pay a few bills. Notice my VHT FB cab as well. Sooo...Happy New Cab Day!
