S470 Japan total makeover

I have done a makeover to my 1993 S470 Japan. I changed the pickups and tremolo, removed middle pickup, done a paint-job and refret it

Hope you like it, comments and critics are welcome

-Neck - Saymour Duncan SH-2
-Bridge - Saymour Duncan SH-4
-Tremolo - FR Special
-Frets- Jumbo Large

Nice. Total throwback 90s/shred era paint job. Its so awesome I'll even look past the Duncans hahaha. (in all fairness, the store was probably out of Dimarzios right?)

Very cool. Gotta ask, why are you spelling it "Saymour"? It's clearly spelt "Seymour" on the pickups!

Not quite, I was joggling between Dimarzios, EMGs or Duncans, at the end the dice landed on Duncans, I guess because I got SH4-SH2 combo for 120 Euros .
