What can I say? The thing plays and sounds great!! The addition of the preamp from Erik's Voyager is a nice touch as well. Also, the back of the neck benefited greatly from having all that varnish removed.....I can't stand that. It's as smooth as glass now though!!:thumbs:

I know the white headstock was/is a bone of contention with most of you guys......me too kinda, but Erik and I both thought it'd kinda be a shame to obliterate the Performance logo, seeing as how rare and somewhat iconic these necks are. I strongly doubt that a replacement would be easy to find.

Once again.........thanks a million Erik, great fucking job bro!!:thumbs::eusa_clap

:eusa_clap awesome! while beating the crap outa my pool pump I was hoping that UPS would NOT do the same!

I glad you like her bro she was a blast to put together and have a mini jam with :thumbs: I really look forward to removing the finish from the Rbm I got from you, playing flamy reminded me of why I like my gunslinger so much (non finish neck) Just a really great feel!



Happy jamming bro and thank you for the kind words!

Yup just didnt have the heart to do it, to me Preformance was/is the kick ass axes of the 80's and so rare to see them anymore.

No more retarded than me telling Roger to play a few Dokken songs on that axe like "Down In Flames", "Into The Fire", "Burning Like a Flame" or "Paris is Burning." :roflmfao:

Yeah, that too but it does not rock like the other songs (I'm a huge Dokken fan). :eusa_whis

Didn't W.A.S.P. also do a song called The Flame ? :icon_cool

Had this thing for a week now....found a problem.





[B]I cant put the fucking thing down!![B]

Seriously this baby rocks. REALLY bright......I gotta crank the highend on my BBE waaaay down to keep from calling every dog in the neighborhood, but with the maple neck and the EVO.....a notoriously bright pickup, that's to be expected I guess.

Yup, I couldn't possibly recommend him enough Nazzr. These parts really weren't 100% compatible, but Erik got them all together.
