New guy with new USA Custom!

I picked this up yesterday from a local mom & pop store. Did some research the week before...seems fairly unique. Def different from my Jackson Soloist...

Re: New guy with new USA Custom!

That doesn't look like an authentic USA Custom. The neck is a USA Custom, but the body seems to be a cheap RG370 or something, by the looks of TRS Tremolo. Looks like someone switched necks. Sorry Man!

Re: New guy with new USA Custom!

I popped open the trem cavity and saw this. Trem has "Ibanez Edge" on the sustain block.

My bad. Your're correct. From the first picture the trem looked different. Never mind. Awesome guitar then!

Nice. Love the exotic woods, and the trans purples are especially tasty!

Re: New guy with new USA Custom!

Congrats on the guitar dude!

The first pic really doesn't do it justice though. Polish her up, then take her outside in the late afternoon sun and reshoot
