Mmm ok, this one is not a new event in fact.
But today I achieved the built with the electronic and trem cover manufacture. That why I figure to show here.
Lefties will hate me.
Got this lefty pointy R5 from a forum member (Liammaru) on the old KF years ago (at this time I didn't found righty and the price was fair, so I gave a try to it).
The body was NOS from larryfirefighter or something. Amazing you will notice electronic cavity triangular shape: a kind of unusual.
The neck pocket cavity has been machined to accomodate the huge R5 pointy fitment: now it's nice and tight. Holes for back covers wasn't drilled when it came.
Regular chrome Floyd.
For the pickups I went Alnico II: PATB-1J for the neck and TB-11J for the bridge: this combination is a very good surprise for me. Dunno why really but it is probably the best sounding axe I have (and I have some). Even with the clean as for the distorted channel it always sounds monster.
