Toshiro,
do you bend your tremolo arms? they look like Floyd style arms, not as straight as an Edge tremolo arm.

Heh, those *ARE* Schaller floyd trem arms! :D

I stick 'em on all my guitars, cuz it's easier to get new ones, they're shorter(tip is right over the neck pickup), and they stay put better than an Edge bar.. No nail-polish or tons of plastic rings, just torque the thumbscrew and it stays in one place forever. ;)

My RG570 - now with an internal GK-2 hex pickup, respray to matte grey, Seymour Duncan '59s and a Sustainiac Stealth:



And the insides:



And here's my Talman; new scratchplate, Kent Armstrong PAF in the bridge, fancy switching (phase for the middle pickup, split/series/parallel for the humbucker, but that's about to change again):

Hey dot-dot-dot, that RG is quite a beast (like the Tlamn as well). Did you do all that wiring yourself? I've been toying with the idea of that RG420 with the GK-2 built-in, but can't seem to find one reasonably priced. Was it difficult?

I did the Talman, but the RG was done by Barrie at Machinehead - far too much routing for me to dare have a go! The work wasn't cheap, but it's superbly done.

THANKS guys!! i never really know people will come to appreciate it, i thought it looked too "purplish". i actually intended to make it to a ll purple JEM modification and have LGM guitars to do either a purple dot inlays or purple vine-inlays but, i'm just short of cash now. i'm extremely satisfied with it now. thanks guys for the comments!! it definitely made me excited to further modify my other guitars!!! THANKS :wink:
