Charvel So Cal & San Dimas
Will update as I do it. It's dawning on me with every second how big a job this is, with the restringing and setting up of two guitars I've got to do once they're swapped over, too :lol: I'm so slow at this shit it's not even funny...
UPDATE: RG stripped!
UPDATE 2: Xiphos stripped!
UPDATE 3: Xiphos blackened!
UPDATE 4: Xiphos restrung and set up!
UPDATE 5: The RG465m be-chromed!
Excuse the shit pics, it's night time now so no natural light. Will take some boss pics tomorrow during the daylight with Ryan's spiffy SLR
I must admit, even before I did the swap, I thought to myself "the xiphos will look badass, but the RG will probs look shit" but I didn't care, because the Xiphos was the main point of this whole exercise.
However, I think the RG also came off looking better than before thanks to this little endeavour. Chrome looks classy on primary colours, cheap on black. I think the opposite can be said for black hardware, honestly (good on black finishes, cheap on colours).
