New RG20051

This arrived today-













I've been chasing after one of these for a while now. This one is basically brand new, as it was bought NOS by the previous owner, and kept under his bed the whole time he had it. Arrived in the afternoon, but then i had to go to work , so when i got home tonight, i changed strings and did most of the setup. Tomorrow i'll finish setting up the action and intonation, and see how see sounds- i may look into replacing the pickups.
When i have some time and natural light available, i'll take a few pics of my favorite parts of the swirl.

Re: New RG20051

Thanks everyone!! Over time, i've come to prefer the B&W swirls over the multicolours, and being that this was NOS, i couldn't pass it up.
BTW- it plays like a dream

Nice one

I got mine back last year and love the thing. Prefer the monochrome swirls to the multi-colour ones TBH

Congrats, now if they had only swirled the headstock too, it would've been even better.

That's a cool swirl!
I wonder how they have done it on the pickups...
