    So here it is. It was born in 1991 in Japan.

    It's super easy to play and it sounds great. I'd like to change the pickguard, the knobs and the pickup covers. Do you know what I should look for?

    All pieces of advice are welcome!

    Lovely guitar, I had one when they were new (I made a thread about it's sad fate once). It was irreparibily damaged by a 'friend' and I've looked for another every since! Enjoy it, they are lovely guitars! :D

    (Out of interest, I like the current colors, why are you looking to change?)

    I love a white guitar with a mint green pickguard. Whatever you change, keep the original parts to replace if necessary. The only thing I notice is the pickguard is the 8 screw variety not the 11 screw. Enjoy!

    Thanks for the feedback and words!

    I noticed the pickguard is 8 screws as I'm looking for a tortoise one. Not sure though. I'm getting used to the idea of a black pickguard. I'm gonna swap the pu covers and the knobs for creamy ones, though.

    Any idea of where amd what to look at?

    Thanks!
