    NGD: RHLC Soloist

    Just got this from the friendly UPS delivery guy. 1988 Soloist with a fairly unusual (for a Soloist) reverse headstock. Crappy iPhone pics:

    Note the Jackson JT-6 trem. It's the last time you will ever see it on this guitar. A Schaller Floyd is sitting in the next room waiting to be installed. Even with the strings partially detuned for shipping, the amazing tonesucking quality of the JT-6 is evident, especially on the wound strings (I've noticed this on other guitars with JT-6s). I've also got an old OFR on its way to me, so that might come into play.

    Electronics are almost certainly going to be yanked, too, though I don't know which Jackson pickups these are. It's got a five-way switch, which is pretty cool. I had to get back to the office, so I barely had a chance to do more than take these pics. Better ones will be forthcoming.

    Very nice! White Soloists are such a classic look.

    "Amazing tonesucking quality"

    Looks great though! How many Soloists do you have now?
    Too much focus leads to tunnel vision
    Too much faith leads to religion
    Too much knowledge leads to confusion
    Too many guitar lessons lead to jazz-fusion
