Where's the binding on those RGs? I would expect the higher priced RGs to have a nice binding...

I got the guitar like that with an original floyd rose bar installed. Apparantly someone bought the guitar and put the bar mod on and then returned it to music 1 2 3 and no one knew the difference....and then ended up my way.

I love the bar mod and am probably going to change all the bars out like that in the near future. its way more fluid.

its just a tighter feel.....more fluid.....more control over whammy work..
the bar also sticks in place where as the pop in bars swing around and seem to rock around in the holder.

like i said......its a WORLD of difference for me.

thanks guys

Very nice collection!

Are those stock pickups in the 1527s or replacements?

Nice, nice. How are those PAF Pros treatin' ya, bro?

P.S: IMO a white background doesn't suit the daylight. In other words: soo shiny!

Re: Prestige Line up (pics)

as for the background, I wasant about to throw em all on that filthy table and all I had was that white sheet.

ANYWHO

the paf pros have always been one of my favorite dimarzios. They can cover pretty much anything you throw at em. I have tried im in mahogany (rgt3020), basswood and alder and they all sounded pretty nice. I have a x2n/paf pro combo in one of my beater guitars and also a pretty good combo....ive long grown out of my high gain pup phase but it works well for what it does.

theres clips of all of my gear on my soundclick
