The body is from a 1985 RG570 in candy apple red and the neck is a maple board RG550 dating from 1980.

Pickups are DiMarzio HSH and the guitar still has a traditional volume and tone pot, however the tone pot has a "push and hold" to kill feature. Release pressure from the pot and the sound comes back - it's an interesting feature and for any non-contemporary player.

The tuners have been replaced with good quality Gotoh's and the guitar also benefits from a fitted, quick release locking strap.

The relic job is deliberate and not just an ill-treated, beaten up guitar. Carefully chipped around the edges with a larger area of wear under the players right arm.

The set up on this guitar is sublime, playing well right across the board with no buzzing or choking. It’s a low, ultimately very playable action.

Neck dimensions are as follows:

Width at nut - 43.6mm

Width at the 12th - 52.5mm

Guitar weight - 3.38kg (7lb 7oz)
