Smile New Guitar Day

Well I just received my new RG 2570VGD from Rich. First off Rich is a great guy to do business with, a man of few words, but great at what he does. The set up is as every one who has bought a guitar from him says "the best". The guitar was packed, as if it was his own. I have never really had a proper set up on any of my guitars ,so it will take a bit of getting used to, action is much lower than I have ever had it, but it feels so good. The neck is fast, these five piece necks are killer. On another note it feels very similar to the neck Chris woods made me, which only makes me feel better about buying from him. The pick ups I'm not 100% sure about yet, they seem a little garbled, and fuzzy. Might just have to re tune some settings, but I will give them a chance. The Color VGD seems more olive green than gold, and I have looked under different lighting and I swear it's green, but I like it any ways. My only bad experience is Customs charged me $296.00 to bring it into the country. Thats friggin crazy. I have to go try it out some more and will post pics when I get a chance. Rich Rules! chef21

Re: New Guitar Day

Get any pics snapped yet? I'm curious to see the "green" of the axe.

Pop in a set of PAF Pros and call it a day

Re: New Guitar Day

I will try to take some pics tomorow. it looks nothing like the pic Rich has on his site. I like it,but I am sure when some people open the case, they are not as happy. Rich says on his site that it's not very gold, but it's GREEN, LOL.

Re: New Guitar Day

Loving the custom. Do you have another thread about that guitar started somewhere?

The color on the new axe reminds me of the original "lime-gold" color Ford used on the original Mustangs. It looks very nice, Congrats!

Bones
