Talking Rg770!

I've been waiting for this moment for a long time. It should be here in a few days. I've just purchased this from Javashred (who, I shamefully caused a bit of a ruckuss with, but everything's cool now ). Here are some pics of it, but I'll post some more (sans stickers):





It's got Tone Zones (yay! )in the neck and bridge positions and a stock IBZ/USA C3 (anyone can give comments on this?). I have a feeling that I'll be loving the bridge pup, but still not sure about the neck. I'm thinking of trading it for PAF Pro. But who knows, eh?

Comments from happy and disgruntled 770 owners are greatly appreciated.

Man i'd really like one of those, or a 750 or something...

Anyway it's very cool, but those stickers really got to go

^No doubt. The first thing I'll do when it gets here is remove it.

Re: Rg770!

I just picked up an RG770 a few weeks ago (about 50 or so thread's back there's some info on it) it was on a music store's site and no one was sure if it was an rg770 or not.It was '90 and has a cherry sunburst finish,which ive never seen before.Anyway to get to the point, it is a real 770 and i ended up buying it for $250.Needless to say, I freakin love this thing.Ive had a Jem and a PGM in the past and i was lookin to get a guitar to replace them (miss those wizard necks).I honestly think the 770 is a better guitar than both of em',I'm seriously addicted to this guitar.Also gotta say they are the best sounding stock pickups ive ever played on a guitar........Anyways good luck.... if your experience is anything like mine your in for a treat w/ your 770!

Re: Rg770!

The Tone Zone in the neck doesn't sound that bad. It'll probably one of the fattest tones you'll hear, but if it's too fat for your liking a PAF Pro is a time tested neck pickup. Mind you a Tone Zone wired in parallel sounds pretty good as well, it cuts back on the fat a bit and still kicks @$$.
