pic of my RG450dx with mods done

hey guys, tonight i got some parts to finish off my rg450,

i dont have a digi cam so i took this pic with my webcam.

it was originally an RG450DXlb

but i got rid of the reflective scratch plate,
painted the scratch plate white
painted the trus rod cover white
sourced white tone and volume nobs from a strat copy + pickup selector
Made 2 white pickup covers from $1.94 single covers from local guitar shop.

over all im quite happy with how suave this looks, not over the top at all, its kinda like my mini blue jem but not really, the pickups in it are stock at the moment, got a seymour duncan sh4 jb to put in this one on monday, that pickup is already black/white so should fit in.

what do you think?

Hey there!

Great work on the overall, but i guess it would really rock if it had a lo-pro and the monkey grip, you can ask someone to do that for you, ask a professional.

Keep it going

Sweet work dude, but I guess you'll need to strip off all the paint if you want the monkeygrip...

I guess it's a cheap way to get a VSBL?
