New guitar day- RG770 (pic)

Actually 2 new guitars day Courier woke me up at 10am and I was racing to the door in my pyjamas to receive my new 770.. but It was not 770 ;/
It came out that my Fender (which was supposed to be another week) was in my house already So- new Jeff Beck Strat (describtion in another forum section) and new RG770.
Here it is with my other guitars:

Great guitar I must say, pretty beat up, but I like guitars with "soul n' history" So I don't care as long as it plays fine. Love maple boards, good all around shredders guitar. Maybe will fit Air norton in the neck but stock pickups just rock. ahh payed 730$ If it bothers you. I know it's a lot but they are very rare, and in my country there's only one another rg770 so it was worth it.
If you would like to hear some soundclips of 770 there's the myspace of Poland's best guitarist Krzysztof Misiak- he plays RG770 as his main stage/recording guitar, nothing else come close. So check it- you won't be disappointed

Cheers

Re: New guitar day- RG770 (pic)

It's the custom shop one.
Ash body with figured maple top, maple neck (very fast) with ebony fretbrd. Set in construction, lovely heel profile. Dimarzio custom pickup set, floyd rose pro, fender tuners- lovely and extremely rare instrument. The professional sound, nothing comes close. It was on evilbay recently (week ago) but I ended the auction and chose to keep it. I had financial problems, but maybe this guitar will stay. If my debts start to beat me I will relist it again. So keep your eyes open Cheers

Is the figured top translucent (doesnt really show in pic), if not aint it a lil overkill to use a nice looking (aka more expensive) piece of maple under solid white?


in either case, congrats on the whole collection

Re: New guitar day- RG770 (pic)

seriously I do not know what to think in this case marianozz. Fender customer service told that it has a HIGHLY figured maple on top of the ash body. Then it was strange to me that the paint is solid white. So I phoned them.. then a guy told me that if it is a solid paint coat there's no maple underneath. But this guitar has a paint chip just where ash should meet figured maple- on the edge of the body. And there are 2 other wood species- I think- because the base is darker (kind of brown) -ash, and the top is bright (just as it should be)-maple. So I'm in the dark now.

I have Fender Set Neck Floyd Rose Strat too. Mine is transparent red. Made in 1989, serial E 900523, which makes it 523 guitar made in Fender Custom Shop. Great guitar. Have it so sale now, have too many guitars.



Also used to have Fender Set Neck Tele. These are different guitars. Mahogony body, stuff like that.
