RG770DXLB black fingers
Any of you who got the RG550 reissue remember the "black fingers & frets" we got when we 1st got them?
Well I'm having the same experience with my RG770DXLB reissue, & it made me laugh thinking back to last year. On the plus side the tone & volume pots are much better quality than those that were installed in the 550 reissues.
I have changed the strings, but I think the culpret is the frets. The only thing I haven't done to the 770 that I did to the 550 to get rid of the black stuff was polish the frets with 0000 steel wool. So I'll do that next. I hope I can get the black on the frets(the maple) off ok.
Awesome guitar though.
