Well to make a long story short, I just got me a used RG270 and have a few questions. If anyone cares to answer them I'd be most appreciative.
1. The serial number starts with C905XXXX. I assume this was built in Korea in 1990?
2. The input jack is a little loose. Should I just tighten it with a wrench? But when I do that, the cable gets hard to plug into it. Is there some secret way to fix this?
3. The pickup switch is a little scratchy when going to other positions. But weird thing is the noise stops after switching it up and down a little. Is this something I can just leave alone?
I think this guitar was a closet queen as it's in pristine condition. I see nothing wrong with the bridge, and I'm just gonna use it like a standard Strat. I'm not going to use a whammy bar, and it seems to hold tune just fine, with just a locking nut and 3 springs in the back.
The pickups sound good to me, although the bridge pickup sounds a tiny bit sterile. What's a good replacement pickup, and can I replace just one? I actually like the neck pickup for jazz/blues. I don't use any other pickup combos, cuz they don't sound too good.
Sorry for the long post, but I love this guitar and want to keep it for awhile. I'll post pics tommorow... thanks.!
