    First run at modding an RG

    So i bought an RG120 off Crgslst for $80 to hack on while the band is on hiatus.
    Figured i'd post up
    Stainless frets
    re-levelled fretboard
    locking tuners
    Warman G-Rail for bridge pkup
    Ibby V8 in neck (not wired yet)
    lathe collet for switch knob with an o-ring
    single volume
    tried to bevel edges. wood hates me.

    Let me know what you guys think.

    Nice move on the collet! I might have to swing by my CNC at work and see if there are any "spare parts" lying around...

    i thought about getting some that are around the size of split shafts
    and use 'em for knobs too. lol
    the size i used was a 3mm ER11. Just in case.
    O ring is R04 ID *7.0 mm

    Almost forgot.
    The paint is Rustoleum Satin Black with 2 coats of
    Rustoleum Reflective paint.
    then 4 coats of Deft clear lacquer.

    That looks good, nice work for a first attempt Interesting seeing you go for a Warman, didn't realise they'd made it across the pond yet.
    I'm so metal I shit bats

    Warman has an @bay store. Shipping was fairly cheap.
    I wired all 3 coils on the G-Rail in series and the ouput is impressive.
    Very articulate across all frequencies.
