Add this one to the herd 2011 RG2560ZEX that has a maple board instead of Rosewood. Turns out to be Ash not alder, it looks like a one off or a spot model as this year/model /color ws distributed with Rosewood not Maple.
now up to 5 RG's LOL! after having none for 15 years
So looking closer at this body it does not appear to be alder but ash so I am guessing by the serial number and the finish that is is a
RG2560ZEx that got a maple board instead of rosewood
2540mz were alder , the Rg2560MZEX was ash, different colors. the 2560 in Triburst is what I ws looking for but this popped up and I got it for such a good deal I figured .... "Go"
links to both on the WIki
got this through a broker on Ebay, after negotiating a very nice price with free shipping which was lightning fast (amazing)
The neck on this one is sweet ,somewhere between the neck on my 550 and the neck on the 1550M. A touch fuller than the same neck that is on my 2770
Frets are in great...
The 550 genesis just arrived a couple of day sago. it's stock, so far I am kind of liking the pickups . the 1550M cam with the Crunchlab/Liquifire
the 2770 is stock TX/TV/AN
the Charvel has been through 3 sets of pickups since i got it , what's in there now is working pretty well.
got this one in the rotation as well (been on a little buying spree LOL!) Tonezone /Breed neck in this one now with 2 push/pull pots and a 3 way switch. Killer neck on this one, already used it at a gig worked great.
This one is incoming from Japan, i will have my tech make a new pick guard back to H/S/S (which this originally was) and throw in some better pickups.
I've rarely seen an "Alder" bodied RG and I really negotiated a good price on this one. Only made for one year and no US distribution. Kind of...
thanks, I'm starting to bond with it a bit more than I expected, been playing the crap out of it this morning and starting to feel at home on it
the RG3727 is definitely a beauty, I wish my band would pick up some songs where I could use it , it is one of my best playing guitars
thanks!! the 2770 has the stock pickups in it
ToneZone/True Velvet/Air Norton
the 1550M has Crunchlab (unknown single but it sounds good) Liquifire, definitely has a lot more output than the "v" pickups in the 550
So I've got this all set up now E Flat with D'Addario .95-44's on it. Raising the pickups helped tremendously.
I wouldn't say I love these V7/V8 pickups but they definitely don't suck.
At this point I still prefer my 1550M over this, I'll play with it for a week or so but I may just flip it...
So besides the 550 I've got these as well. Being a hard core Jackson/Charvel guy for so many years I think I'm making up for lost time :) Getting a little out of cotrol
2770QZA (gorgeous in person and sounds amazing)
3727 Suhr Hot7/Vintage this one sounds and plays great too, crap they...
I saw this last week at a great price so I figured I'd 'buy to try" as there are none local to me .
Someone on here had mentioned in one of my other posts that the necks on these have a little more shoulder to them than the Super Wizard HP' on the Prestiges.
So far I agree , this feels like a...
have mine installed on a MIJ Charvel Socal. top mounted floyd , so I don't have that much room to pull up with to begin with, but it does allow me to flutter and pull up with what I do have, and I have a D-tuna on it so I didn't want to have to block the trem. Mine works great, it did...
