Is the paint big-flaked, like this?


I thought they had color-changing paint, but the paint on this one looks different than the ones on ibanez.com and the ones on musiciansfriend.com. I might get this guitar, but I've never seen or played one and I was wonderin if the paint really does change colors, or if it's just blue with green and black flakes in it like the pic above.
thanks.

it's supposed to look like this:

There is some serious flash reflection in that picture. It's normally a very pleasing finish, it has a distinct feeling of depth to it.

It's by no means as gaudy as that pic - check this out.

I think when they say "changes color" they mean that it looks different from different angles. BTW that paint looks like ass

EDIT: nevermind, I just saw the other pics and totally changed my mind - nice axe

Eighty bucks per Evo, and ten minutes with a soldering gun. If you're unsure about your soldering gun skills, someone might do it for you for another twenty.

did you change your pickups yourself? i know someone that's skilled with a soldering gun that could do it for free. do hums and singles cost different prices? how do you get the old pickups out and the new in?

Yeah, I do all the work on my guitars. Guitar electronics is no rocket science, that's for sure, anyone could learn the basics with relative ease.

Pickups are screwed into the guitar body (or the pickguard, as case be), and are connected inside with 2 to 4 wires each. Replacing them is merely a matter of putting the new pickups on the same screws, and connecting the wires in a correct order.

Singles are usually cheaper than humbuckers, but you're not going to buy an Evo single (the only way to get one is to rip it out of a JEM). If you don't use your single a lot, I wouldn't even recommend swapping it in an HSH guitar.
