Sunday the 8th, I traded in my Japanese DK2m for a very good condition RG1570 in Mirage Red. Unfortunately, the Boston Police Department requires that GC holds guitars for 30 days before they can let it out of the shop. So, I had to wait until the 17th.

On Tuesday, I finally got to pick it up. It's like the Jackson, but better. Super easy playing, as a prestige should be! The pickups are unsurprisingly fairly mediocre, but I'll get some Dimarzios fairly soon. I actually don't mind the middle pickup too much, since I never use it alone anyway. Maybe I'll replace it at a later date, but for the moment I don't care enough.


I love the way the Edge Pro feels. And the string changing is awesome! Love the fact that I don't have to deal with cutting strings off, plus I can't lose blocks (I did that more than once on my other Floyd equipped guitars, and it's awful).

Oh yeah, I paid $350 out of pocket for it. Hell of a deal.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

nice
I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Cool guitar, but it doesn't look very "red" to me in the picture. HNGD! Enjoy it!

Many grats! One of my favorite guitars. Yes the pickups suck, but the guitar itself is beast like! Have fun with it.
