Re: Pics of my new blue RG550 =)

lol, thanx people

I found that 550 by chance at a store, and couldnt believe how clean it was for a '90... So, i just had to have it !!!!

Once it was at home, i sanded the whole neck down to natural maple and put 5 coats of tung oil on it... its so damn smooth now, its like glassy wood, if thats even possible...

I put a Tone Zone / Paf Pro combo there, and wired a Ep1112 the following way:

1- TZ series
2- TZ parallel
3- both full
4- PP parallel
5- PP series

then, i added a mini switch for coil tap (inner coils on), and then the other mini switch turns the stock S1 single on/off... lol, kinda crazy, and not that practical, but it sures give me a hell of a lot different sounds

i shielded the whole thing with tin foil, i couldnt find conductive paint anywhere around here... dont forget to check the pics in the link

nice!

what does the tin foil do though? does that actually make a difference in the sound?

I dont know if it aaaactually makes a difference, or if its just the placebo effect, but the guitar now its damn silent, no loose wire buzz, no ground sparky sounds... whatever, im really pleased with the whole wiring in that one, damn tough diagram to follow, too

Re: Pics of my new blue RG550 =)

nice guitars! I have an similar RG550, looks like the same color but I'm sure mine is electric blue. It's got a tonezone and airnorton.



the tone zone sounds great on an RG550 coz it's a bright-sounding guitar and the tonezone is dark so they balance well. works great for van halen, to satriani, to steve vai and paul gilbert stuff.

I see alot of pics with guitars laying on the ground. Hard surfaces ....brick floors, tile floors etc.

Are these ppl crazy? Or am i too anal? I think they are crazy.

BTW...nice guitar.
