    Still the classiest finish for a Rhoads IMO.
    Unbound neck is a plus.
    Congrats

    I will never understand the metal V string through plate though. It just looks off.

    Recorded a rough improv with the new axe. I was planning on switching out the pups but I'm actually digging the Distortion.

    Can't post links yet but...

    Man, nice score. I bought one of these used and about a week ago when it came in, the guitar had been beat to hell so I got my money back. Such a shame, but glad you got a good one though!

    That sucks man, I'm sorry to hear that. Hope you're able to find another one!

    I swear this guitar has been sitting in a case for 28 years. It's practically factory new, not sure how

    Nice guitar and I like the gold hardware...very classy. I own a black Jackson King V guitar which I truly love playing and they're great guitars. Congrats.

    Yep! That's the Rhoads aesthetic I would go for! Love it. It looks really pretty and killer! ;) Rosewood fingerboard or Ebony? Looks Rosewood to me. I prefer Ebony.

    It’s rosewood, but fretboard wood has never been something I’m picky about. I’ve owned ‘em all

    I've never owned a guitar without an Ebony fingerboard (except my very first one which is a piece of crap haha). So, don't know. I'll be buying an ESP LTD Axxion in September, so, that would be my first guitar with a Rosewood fingerboard.
