NGD! MIJ Robin Medley

Hey Gents,

Just picked up this 80's shredder! Been looking for an ESP made Robin for a while and happy to add this to the stable. Came un-wired with duncan hums, and dimarzio single bucker. Kind of beat up (not that bad though!), and has it's problems. Picked it up from the apartment office at 5:30, had it completely torn down by 5:45. On to pics!
Dirty and apart:

Headstock after soap and polish:

Body after soap and polish. Note the buggered tone hole:

After much effort!

The bridge JB was sharpied BLACK! Rubbing alcohol cleaned it up to this [email protected]$$ blue and I like it. Some people! Will post more tomorrow after I get it put back together. If anyone knows anything more about MIJ Robins, please let me know anything! Details on these are far and few between and it would be most appreciated!!! Pics are welcome as well.

Regards,

Mike

Re: NGD! MIJ Robin Medley

Had some saddle issues with the original Tekeuchi bridge.... But, it is back in one piece now! It's kind of a beast. Not a super huge Duncan fan but these babies sound pretty good. The neck is interesting... As thick as a wizard 2 with medium frets that are very tall. Not used to it but it is not bad and there is virtually no fret wear. Still need pressure pads for the nut and a new bar. On to pics!
I will go with either black or white knobs, I had the blue sitting around:


That chunk and volute!
