The Old Girl get's a new look.....

I decided to try Jesse's idea of putting a Breed in the bridge of my RGT3120............. Freakin' BRILLIANT!!!!

Nice call Jess!!! it finally sounds like an Ibby and not a tele. Unfortunately, the only black breed I have is regular spaced so I'm going to order a new one from BanjomikeZ tonight. I also tried a Mo'Joe in the neck......... not so spectacular, but it's nicer than anything else I've tried. I do have a black and white set of Breed/Fred pups I could try, but I don't think the Zebra pups will go very well.

Anyway, I put some new jewelry on the old girl some time ago. With the new pups working so well I though it would be a good time to show her off a bit!!

2nd the gold. Gorgeous looking Ibanez. A VV is on my must-have list.

Beautiful, Ryc! Glad that the Breed finally nailed it for you!

I take it the PAF Pro in the neck is still not what you're after? Based on all the pickups you've said you like, what about just a Breed Neck? A Gravity Storm Neck might also work. I'm absolutely in love with the Liquifire I have in the neck of my RGT.

Great job Ryc. The gold hardware works really well with that finish.

Looks fantastic mate. I reckon that the black and white pickups would be great in the guitar. Give it a go I say.

You should mock it up with the zebra pups, but I'm with you that I don't think it will look that good. Maybe black/creme, but I do think that it might start looking kinda busy with all that going on.

What would make it complete would be gold polepieces on the pickups! I did this on my J Custom with the Transition pickups. Looks amazing!

Either way, nicely done and a beautiful instrument!

I keep coming back to look at this guitar. You have a great collection Ryc but if I had to choose one I'd probably plump for this.

Why do you want to order an F spaced. when the one you got will do the exact same job apart from some minor cosmetics.. ??

What do you think of the transitions? His demo of them makes them sound amazing and the new album has some quite tasty tones.
