That is pretty creative, looks like a really clean install too, nice. I bet it really pops on a dark stage!

Re: RG1570ZBL Prestige LED MOD!!

the only thing the currently bugs me is the LEDs on the humbuckers... I have masked them as much as possible using black paint (wires, glue, etc) but I would have liked to hide them even better ... but I'm a perfectionist haha...

All you need now is little hydraulic cylinders which make the trem jump up and down.

haha the next thing might be a circuit board for flashing patters... or maybe a sound activated board???

When I next build a guitar I'll do the works... fretboard LEDs, LEDs at the nut pointing up the headstock, maybe a thin lighted rim or "binding" to the guitar... would be sweet!!

If a middle pickup had to die to do that, it was a worthy sacrifice. Good work!

Re: RG1570ZBL Prestige LED MOD!!

the pickup is still fine and dandy though the cover however is well mauled and filled with glue in the back haha....

I could actually make and sell pickup covers with LED's in? that would be a great idea!
