I decided to trade in one to complete the collection:

Nice playing guitars with a fixed bridge, fun fun fun. Love the pink inlays on the pink one.

Good shout, I will take a photo of inside the cavity and see if we can see those gold coins!

Ps, Slash owns one too!

OK,got a shot of that cavity.

Image

Its given me an idea, plenty of room for a battery for an white EMG pickup. Would look better with the scratchplate and sound frightening.

Well, I got the EMG for the hello kitty. Fits the cavity fine

Image

I was amazed at the new plug and play installation from EMG, no soldering required! All I had to do was widen the hole to the jack socket to get the plugs through. Plenty of room for the battery and wiring in the cavity

Image

Only other adjustment was to round out the scratchplate which my brother in law did a lovely job on.

Image

Looks the biz and the sustain is great. I will have to do a YouTube video and post the link up here.

That's the tastiest axe I've seen so far this year. What about a pink knob for extra stealth?
