Ok guys, I finally picked her up from our good friend Jon and let me say this: Good god this thing RIPS!!! The EMG in the neck actually isn't half bad, and the Blackout in the bridge is just insane gain all the way around. I MIGHT have issue with that at some point because it's almost TOO over the top for me. But we shall see. Time will tell in this case haha. Jon was right though, this thing is dead mint, aside from a TINY chip in one wing and the electronics being switched out for active pickups. Other than that this this is just completely TITS.

I pray RSB will be able to sleep through the night after seeing this. Please don't kill me Bob! I mean no harm! :eusa_whis Sorry the pics aren't that hot. I can't find my digital camera so I used my iPhone. Better than nothing I guess LOL

Looking real good. Great color. Like you said it will be interesting to see how you get on with that pickup. The blackout is one mean bastard.

Looks like she has settled in quite well already, with her brother and sister:icon_eek::clap:

Very nice V guitar. :thumbs: I love that silver color, I could picture a WWII bomber graphics on there with the paneling and bolts. :eusa_danc

You see that first knob?
The one between the pickup and the bridge?
Roll it back a little bit. :icon_lol::eusa_danc

:icon_bigg Glad ya like her, I sure did. :thumbs: The dude I picked it up from was no better at wiring than you - I had to fix his soldering as the fucker was intermittent when I first plugged it in.
:icon_eek: That's a neck BO in the bridge, just think if you had the right one there or maybe a BO Metal..:thumbs:

Hahaha I'm pretty bad so I can only imagine :icon_lol: I noticed the volume knob is loose so I need to get in there and tighten it down. When I turn the volume up, the whole pot starts to spin LOL. Easy fix, so it's all good. Other than that this thing looks like it's never been played. Jon can attest to that I'm sure. For the price I got her for, I'm WAY happy :thumbs:

I didn't notice that or I'd have tightened it. :thumbs:
Tip, when you take the knob off - loosen the set screw and when you put it back on after tightening the nut on the pot make sure the set screw tightens against where the split in the shaft is - otherwise when you tighten the set screw it squeezes the shaft shut and the fucken knob will be crooked.

I thought everybody knew that, then again, I forget how stupid people can be. :rofl:

It is less then 1/2 the knobs I see put on right. :eusa_naug

Believe it or not it is the ONE thing I DO know how to do, Jon :icon_lol: I found out the hard way long ago by squashing (and consequently breaking it when trying to fix it. Literally snapped the bent half right off) it together with the screw.

No biggie. I know if you knew about it, it'd be tighter than a nun's slit on Sunday. I'll fixer up :thumbs:

Wicked guitar! (I wanted to use that word, and it seems to work for pointy guitars...)
I love painted necks too.
