NOGD 1987 RG560

Well, I got this a couple of weeks ago and played it for a bit and loved the way it played but the pickups left alot to be desired so I had listed it for sale on here. As I sat playing it though I remembered I had a Chopper DP184 pickup in my parts bin so I thought I would try it and I am glad I did. Really nice warm sound out of the neck so I put a white pickup cover on the middle and had to figure out what bridge pickup to use. I decided on an AT-1 because I had always wanted to try one, got it late last week and finally got it wired right. It sounds incredible and much different than my Herc which gives me some more versatility whenever I do finally get back to writing.

It has some bumps and bruises but the hardware, neck and frets are in great shape. I have some white knobs coming too.

Thanks guys. I got the knobs yesterday but they are too white and dont look right. Wil have to go with vintage knobs

The AT-1 is an interesting pickup. It does what it says it does, real airy, PAF style of pickup and the Chopper just sounds awesome.

It is one of the easiest to play guitars I have owned.

And....I'm selling it.

+1 I sold my 86' RG440 (3 single coil version) to a buddy of mine a few yrs ago and I put a chopper in the bridge on it and you right, nice and warm, even in the bridge.
After we plugged it in I wish I hadn't sold it to him.....LOL (that RG440 was near mint, oh well...)
