This is from reading only, not from personal experience, so correct anything that's not right.
Yikes! That doesn't sound good. As I said, I bought my guitar nearly ten years ago. I haven't tried the recent models. I'm going to have to check a few out. There's a dealer in my town. I should go there soon.

Re: Pics of my Pacifica

Here's a pic of the whole guitar.



The thing made of twigs behind the guitar is used by my family's cat to sleep in.

I'm going to post pictures of my Ibanez S470IB too. Perhaps tomorrow, if I find the time. So stay tuned...

my dad might be able to order one because he is one of yamaha's main piano techs so he might have connections. I know i can order parts for guitars at least because i ordered a spare active/passive button for my sheehan bass

Re: Pics of my Pacifica

That's great! Remember, you can get the RGX in three colors: Metallic blue, Metallic red, Dark metallic gray, and Metallic black.

The guitar looks great, newbieguitarmaker. And I don't think it's very expensive. My Yamaha cost me about $450: a steal.



What color is your Billy Sheenan bass?

it's the bex-bs i almost got the attitude bass but it was sold the day before i could buy it >_< so it's a pinkish top and the bex is still very nice. Also if i can't import an rgx220 over here maybe one of my fellow European jemsiters could get one and send it to me if i actually got that desperate

Re: Pics of my Pacifica

That Bexbs is cool.



Newbieguitarmaker, if your dad can't import a RGX for you, I would be willing to help you. In the case you can't get one, you could send me a PM, and we'll arrange something with the help of one of the moderators or Glen.

Kind regards,
Alwin

Re: Pics of my Pacifica

The guitar is an absolute steal at 339 Euros. I might end up getting one myself, too.

Re: Pics of my Pacifica

It's amazing.

As you know, I'd like to have a Pacifica with a Floyd rose original. But this double locking RGX is four times cheaper! Wow... I have something to think about.

Thanks, newbieguitarmaker. Let me know if your dad can get one or not.
