RG1570 Mods and upgrades
I just got an RG1570 off craigslist about a month ago. I bought it with the intentions to learn how to work on guitars more. Do upgrades , change out parts, repaint etc.
I was wondering what advice you all might have?
Right now my plans are to change out the pickups/wiring/pots with all custom stuff. It will have push/pull pots to coil split and a 3 way toggle to choose inside or outside split coils on the humbuckers.
I also plan to repaint it. Not sure what color right now but am leaning towards a darker red. Possibly satin finish. Maybe add a monkey grip like the JEM while I have it stripped down. Not sure.
Also gonna switch out the tremolo with a nice Floyd Rose.
As far as the neck goes I'm not sure what all I want to do except polish the frets for sure. Any input on how I can make it better?
I plan to take my time and just try to make it as badass as possible for funnsies.
