The guy I took it to is like a master luthier and has been in business for decades and pretty much everyone recommends him. He also has a one + month waiting list.

Re: NGD RG750

Nice score! I love the black ones. Cracks behind the nut are super common on the old RG's, and they have nothing to do with dropping it. He doesn't really need to know that to fix it though. Serial stickers are often missing on the '87-'88s too. It's from whatever years the grey bobbins were available.

Thanks. I've got an appointment for the first week of July to get everything fixed.

Here's the list of things to be fixed:

- crack in the back of the headstock (luthier thinks the guitar was dropped, he said he doesn't think it's from over-tightening the nut screws)

- tone knob

- dead notes on D string 14th fret, 16th or 17th fret, and on the G string on the 14th fret when you bend it up more than a whole step. He said he thinks something fell on the guitar when it was in the bag and pushed the fret in

It plays really well, though, especially now that I fixed the trem angle (the angle was way too low when I got it). Well, except for the 3 dead notes and the tone knob not working
