I have had this body that I got for a steal from Chris Woods many years ago and it was trashed. I re worked it and had intended to swap all the hardware off the RG7620 that I owned at the time.
It turns out that the routes were all too small so I shelved the idea and sold the RG7.
Here is the pic from Chris Woods' site at the time of purchase, he added the neck screw holes and ferrule recess before shipping to me:
You can see it was a steal because it needed some work. I had to file/sand all of the tooling edges on the heel and the belly carve.
Here are some pics of the process:
Later I made the pickup tabs more triangular to fit DiMarzios and then figured out the trem route was too small for a Lo-Pro and promptly put it in a box and on a shelf for like 6+ years. You can see those here:
These are also the current condition of the body.
I had an idea after seeing some guys building 27" conversion necks on /7/. I was going to build a conversion neck for this but I have had GAS for a 27 fret Hamer Californian for many years so I had to build that into my dream.
Here is what this body will be turning into in the next couple of months:
The RG7, 27" scale, 27 Fret guitar, The RG72727.
I am doing a blade switch so I can get some different tones from the pickups.
I am going to put a Duncan Custom Shop Hot rails in the neck and do either black covered EVO7 in the bridge or a Pegasus. Haven't quite decided.
Either way it will be
