Re: RT series

I found my pickguard at Terrapin pickguards, very kind service and great product (it's the one you see on the photos above)

Re: RT series

here are some new photos of my RT150 (she now has a Tone Zone on bridge, Virtual Vintage 2.1 in the middle and Virtual Paf Neck on neck position)

Here some photos of my new RT240 too : the pickups have been swapped for a Double Whammy on bridge and a pair of Cruisers (neck) for middle and neck positions !

Both great guitars !

Re: RT series

It looks sweet with these zebra pickups.

Can you tell us a bit more about these pickups ?

Those are a set of Miracle Man humbuckers with a Trilogy middle position from Bare Knuckle Pickups in the UK. Pickups are handwound and all that, sound amazing and great service as well. They've got a website where you can find more info.

Re: RT series

here's a pic of my rt240

had a pearl scratchplate made for it with 1 hb (now been changed to a Bill Lawrence L-500XL). the trem has been apoxy'd to the body to get more string vibration transfered to the wood (it now rings like a bell).

Re: RT series

Just curious, those of you that have both the 6 screw version and the 2 post versions of the tremolo (rt150 vs the other rt's) . Do you notice a difference in the sustain or ability to dive and stay in tune. Is one better than the other. I have a newly acquired rt150 and was just wondering the pros and cons of both. This is my first "non-edge" guitar.

That is a nice looking guitar!
