NUD! New Upgrades day!

So, been busy upgrading some of the old collection. Let's see what we have so far.

We have a 2550E with some new white DiMarzio's.



We have a RGT220A with some lovely creme DiMarzio's I think it came out nice.



annnnnd the 2620 that had the lava effect done to it and it's new white DiMarzio's (the Liquifire/Crunch Lab combo) added as well as white knobs. Crunch Lab will probably get turned around soon. Wanted to try it with the bar away from the bridge.




So there's more to do. I'm FINALLY going to upgrade the pickups on my 1987 RG560 in neoniriffic carotene orange. MAWR white DiMarzio and maybe some orange knobs.

There's a USRG10 in transparent blue that will get some pink pickups and knobs. I just think pink will look cool on it.

Sadly, in my previous over thinking of what to change, I have some yellow pickups that will need to find a guitar, just don't think I have one they'd look good in.

Finally, and hopefully this week, parts will be mailed to me to construct the infamous custom known as the 540PIII (the Swirlnick). We wait with bated breath.

Pics of the other upgrades when I do them.

They all look great. The creme ones in the RGT are perfect!! Great to see the Lava model fully built. I knew that would look cool when it was all put together.

MAWR upgrades!

My beloved RG560 that I've had since 1987. I said let's pop some new pups in that baby!
New knobs as well since I got ORANGE (thank you, Jemsite's own ibanezfreak777)



and a Heartfield Talon IV. Let's be honest, Fujigen made it, it's a f**kin' RG550. :P Changed the knobs as well cause I didn't like the originals. They were some wacky wide dial thingies. Yech!
