Painter's tape overload!
Background: Bought this RG7620BK off of CL for $250. Had a lot of dings on the edges. Also had a mystery serial # (W94081905). So, I decided that a new look was needed. Removed the pickups, routed out the bridge cavity, dropped in an EMG 707TW, and covered the body in painter's tape!
Only problems: the volume knob and the push-pull coil tap don't work. I have everything wired per EMG's diagrams, but it still doesn't work. The pickup still works well, though.
The tape is only temporary. I'm probably going to sand off the finish and put an oil finish on the body (with a sticker over the pickup, or maybe a different pickup with its own output (I have a SD Invader 7, but I loaned it out to a friend)).
This thread has already caused quite a fuss on SS.org, so please be conservative in your responses.
PS: First post! Pics will be up soon.
