I wanted to change all the hardware on my Xiphos to black. Black finish guitars with chrome hardware look cheap as shit. Black hardware on black guitars looks the fuckin bomb.
A solution arose... I spotted an RG465m on eBay, figured "holy shit, that's got the exact same hardware, but black! Reverse headstock tuners and everything..." (fuck the trem, upgrading to OFR down the line)
So I bought it...
Now, the idea was; swap hardware with the Xiphos, sell the RG on, probably make a little loss on it, but still cheaper than buying all the hardware separately (this is a brand spanking guitar, it's had about 30 mins play time).
There's only one problem. I love it and don't want to sell it
I can't keep it. I bought it with money I shouldn't really be spending, so one of my guitars has got to go in the next couple of weeks.
It can't be the Xiphos because that's just out of the question. That's my main axe and I love the shit out of it.
The white V... I only just bought the damn thing about a month ago, and it's a really fun guitar to play.
But... man, this guitar is just phenomenal. It seems ridiculous selling a guitar that I prefer to the V, and only keeping the V out of principal because it's new. If I flat-out prefer this one's tone and playability, it wins, right? RIGHT!?
Anyway, this or the white V will be up for sale in the next few days
/white people problems.
This is the easiest question I have ever been asked to answer.
SELL THE WHITE V!
It's not about principle, it's about feel. End of story.
