NGD- J Custom 1608 AM she's purdy !!

Ok so I finally paid off the J Custom 1608 AM

Its not a case queen, and has clear coat chips on some edges..

Also I need some help the strap screws have been removed and replaced with some sort of strap clip system, I dont know of. The rear is missing the adapter part that would hold on the strap. Photos of it below.

any help would be great !!

This is a shot of the strap clip thats missing from the rear. So I would need to get a replacement one.

its not a good shot, will take a better one, but it has a button on the tip to release the strap I assume..

Very nice guitar. These are very much like a nicer RG3120. Overall it looks to be in very good shape.

The countersunk strap pins are Dunlop Straplock "flush mount" type. If you buy a pair of Straplocks they'll fit.



And it's not a retrofit. This was standard on some J-Custom models around 1997. I have one RG1608 and one RG1680 and both are equipped with these.

Hey Freak--congrats on the new "baby!" That's a beauty! I was never a fan of red or natural guitars, but this one and another recent NGD J Custom thread are making me reconsider...
Oh Rich, wherefore art though?!?!?
