Smile NGD! Total impulse buy

While I was out running errands today I stopped at the local used guitar place we have in town and stumbled on this little guy here. Somebody did a killer fret job on this because it feels fantastic! The back of the neck needs some cleaning though. It's got a SD of some sort in the bridge(totally in love with it) and who knows what's in the neck(possibly a Dragonfire, but not for long). At first I thought it was a dimarzio based on the colors, but there's no screw polepieces. I'll find out for sure tomorrow when I tear it down and give it some love.

Re: NGD! Total impulse buy

nice! I like these guitars and would totally pick one up. Would be so fun to trick one of these out.

I always liked those RG2EX1's. New pickups, nut and tuners, and you have yourself a monster of a guitar!

Re: NGD! Total impulse buy

Thanks guys. And that neck pickup definitely needs to go (sounds like poopoo). I may throw in my EVH Frankenstein to see what happens. I was surprised to find a 5-way switch in there too. I'd like to do some zebra pickups and either black and/or white top hat knobs. I also thought about doing a total refinish, but it's excellent condition. No dings or scratches. Locking tuners are #2 after the neck pickup.

It's actually a RG2EX2 according to the back of the headstock.

Re: NGD! Total impulse buy

Upon further inspection, the bridge pickup is a JB and the neck is a dragonfire(soon to be up for sale ). And the black binding is just painted on

Quick update:
Installed some EMG's, white speed knobs, and some jockomo decals to "enhance" this beast. It's my official drop-tuned "djent" metal monster.

That was my original plan when I got it, but I realized I wanted something downtuned.
