First thing I bought yesterday. Made In Japan Rg 520QS 24 frets, mahagony body with quilted sapele top. Shitty v7 v8 pickups.Edge trem.

Need to change strings,oil the fretboard and get some new pickups in asap.












Then While browsing Craigslist I seen this and snagged this like a few hours after the Ibanez :lol: I will wind up selling this one or parting it out.

"San Dimas" partscaster. All parts neck, ebony fretboard with 12" radius, Mighty mite ash body, GFS Sperzel style staggered locking tuners, Wilkinson Trem (not sure of model) and Emg-x 81.

















Not sure what that black line is on the back of the neck. Sorry I didn't realise that the front shot came out so dark and shitty. :(

Also I put this amp on layaway. Buy Egnater Tourmaster Series 4212 All-Tube Guitar Combo Amp | Tube Combo Amps | Musician's Friend :D Got a great deal on it.

When you sell that RG, you will sell it to me, or I will find you, and kick you in the dick. A lot.

Awesome guitars dude.

Damn, that Ibanez is really clean for a 99 guitar. Nice score on both dude, but don't dare part out the parts-o-caster, it's too nice as it is.

another +1 on the 520QS. It's funny... I've owned a veritable pile of 2000-and-earlier RGs, and the 520QSs are the only ones that are REALLY clean when I get them. The Mahogany must be more resistant to damage. That, or they're so pretty that the owners baby them more.

Mine got chipped to shit. :lol: The finish just flaked off whenever it cracked.

Man, I almost forgot about that guitar - it was really a pretty sweet instrument, but the neck was a little thin for my tastes. I ended up trading it in when I got my first 7.

Good choice on the 520QS. and the partsocaster is sweet too.
