Yeah, I agree--for $170.00, it's decent. I suggest picking up an original Edge and doing the conversion. The neck and body of these 450s are comparable to 550s.
Thanks to all of you. It's funny, I actually just sold an original edge off my 550 to fund this baby.
Seen plenty of 3 series RGsand lesser then the 550s and up but no too many of these.. they seem kinda rare around these parts. I'm guessing that I'll be happy.
Not fussed with the the MIK part. I've has a MIK 555 and it was all good. I even got my 270 sounding nice with a bit of love (ok a lot).
They are INFs buy the looks. Its funny, the gilr is selling on behalf of her brother, I have to call her tomorrow to talk her through getting the neck off for post.
The only reason I got it really is because I have had a Full GK GT unit for well over a year and now that I don't have a a midi keyboard, I really need to get this baby rocking, and the other build is taking too long (my fault)
Looks like I'll be blocking the trem and ripping out all but one pup. Custom PG for the GK and she should end up being a sweetie.
Seriously, you should have seen my options for this price bracket...pretty poor.
Gios and Rx40's etc are selling for more lol 270's? 350's? forget about it. haha
Thanka again guys.
