NGD Candy Apple goodness

Got this from a fellow Jemsiter this week. Thanks Nathan. 1992 RG750 in Candy Apple. Just a beautiful deep metal flake red with matching headstock. It has a set of Dimarzio Evolutions from a JEM, I think. Has the Dimarzio stamp on the faces. Just got it all cleaned up and full set-up. No neck pocket cracks or lock nut crack. A few small dings but all in all in great condition. Has the North Hollywood neck plate too. Sounds awesome with really great singing cleans. One of the best guitars Ibanez ever built IMO.
May do a little moding. I've got a set of red F/C series pickups, knobs, and switch tip from a 770DX for it and maybe a white pickguard. Waiting on a pickguard from Perle Guitars.

I'd keep it as it is; the white pups make it pop.

Re: NGD Candy Apple goodness

Looks really nice. Interested in seeing it with the white pickguard. I've always thought the candy apple red with the white pickguard is one of the best Strat color schemes.

Re: NGD Candy Apple goodness

The guard should be here today. I always like to mod to my tastes and like to be different. I've never seen a 750 with a white guard. I used to have an old '76 Malibu in red with white SS stripes and I liked the look.
