New Year, New Guitar

Hello Folks! Happy 2007 to you guys. Hope it will be a smooth and lucky year for all! Finally the Dog year in Chinese Calender is almost over! My luck will change for the better!

Anyway yes, this is my first post for year 2007. And what better way to introduce the new year but with a New Guitar!!

I spent the whole new year just trying to get this baby alive and working again. She's an early 1990's Yamaha RGZ621D. What a classic glam rock/shred guitar this is.

First up is a pic of the electronics which I had to wire up. It gave me some minor troubles but I thought some stuff over and figured out with some guidance from 2 friends.

Anyway here are the specifications for the guitar first:

Alder body with bolt-on maple neck and rosewood fretboard. 24 frets with last 5 frets scalloped.
Yamaha Licensed Floyd Rose double locking bridge.
1 Vol, 1 Tone control (both 250K) with 5 way lever switch.
Seymour Duncan JB in the bridge
Lace Sensor Blue in the middle
Seymour Duncan SSL-2 in the neck

Wonderful guitar I reckon. I got it at a decent deal as well.

Here are the pictures. Enjoy.

Thanks for viewing guys.

Next blog entry will most likely be about the next jam with details for songs and timings. Thanks again. Have a HAPPY 2007!!!

Hi Ken,
happened to see a post of yours in duncan forum and wow, never did i expect the almighty yellow was displayed proudly there!

I am the previous owner of the RGX621D, and you know who i am. Glad you are enjoying it and may you be another proud yamaha owner, just as I have been for the past several years. Many of RGXs outplay japanese RG anytime, but remained unsung heroes. Too bad I don't play much floyd these days, n it has to go.

Glad it has found a new home. Cheers!

Hey John, thanks man!

And for the other dude, yeah i dont really care about trem spacing, it only affects output to my high E string minimally something that most ppl cant even tell the diff.
