Thanks for the input RGTFanatic...
The previous owner of the guitar said the original black body was replaced with the green one due to an unfortunate accident.The original body must have had direct mount pickups,which is why you don't see pickup height adjustment screws in the pickup rings.but I will fix that problem with some nicer looking pickup rings, and I'll have to solder a nut to the pickups mounting flanges to make everything right.
I had to put a .7 mm shim in the neck pocket in order to get a proper setup. The action ended up being beautiful, 1mm on the 1st string and 1.5mm on the 6th at the 12th fret,with a slight neck relief, which is my preference. The Lo Pro Edge performs awesome as always..
Of course the F Series pickups sound amazing!
This is my first RG, even though it set up exactly how I wanted it, I'm still on the fence about the block heel neck joint. I'm having a hard time getting my hand around it. I'll give it some more time.
