    I like to stay minimal... but, I am sometimes involved in playing faster (than skill allows.)
    So, I’ve been watching for a fast neck with a trem. Here we go... look at that quilt. 1987? It looks five years old tops.

    Beautiful! I damn near bought one very similar but ended up going with my RG550 instead. I love the finish.

    I'm not a "shredder", but I love the playability of shredder guitars.

    Hey congrats! I know I've run into a few guitars where, one way or another, it feels like you are accelerating faster than you fingers might normally go...

    but, about that quilt, you say.

    Me, old man, frozen caveman guitar player. I'd like to believe you when you say there is some quilt involved, but even on my big screen, I'm not getting the full benefit of quilt-y-ness from your photo. You may have noticed that some of us like photos where we can actually see what it is that you are talking 'bout.

    If you could get that camera up where it's close enough to see just the body, then I'll believe you. Well, hey, I believe you anyway, but rules is rules.

    ...maybe there is a different term for that figuring? Not my intent to be misleading... just bragging ;)

    hey thanks!

    whatever it is, I like it better than some of that over-the-top quilt!

    well done - enjoy in good health :)

    I bought one brand new in 87 (?), sunburst finish. The Licensed Floyd was the only weak point. Not awful, just not the most stable. I think the pickups were underrated and had i had better taste in amps, i think they would have sounded better. I don't remember how, where, or why I got rid of it but i had it thru college and played everything from Elvis to Metallica on it in a couple of hobby bands on campus. I paid $599 new and financed it. The carbonite fretboards are really great. I know they were only made for one year due to lawsuit by PRS. Mine did not have that dual toggle setup so i think yours is modified. Mine had a single three position toggle. I'll look for a pic as ive never seen another one in same finish as mine, most are similar to yours, or that transparent red.

    Thanks, I haven’t explored if the extra toggle is original... I do agree with one of my player friends that one switch is the pickup selector and the other seems to be a coil splitter.

    Very nice. Have kept 1 shredder around. Washburn G2V & redid the wiring & has SD Parallel Axis in bridge. The neck on these guitars are amazing. The figuring on them is so cool. They are very balanced guitars. Enjoy

    Very cool, great looking and nothing wrong have a shredder guitar.

    I have a shredder neck with very flat radius and hockey stick hs that I really need to put together with something!

    Okay, only known photo of mine. Notice the strange white thing on the dresser and the Ross Phase/Distortion pedal on the floor. I challenge anyone to find an image of one with the same finish, it didn't even appear in the catalog IIRC. Single toggle switch, passive EMG HZ's. That strap i am still using today. 4" woven cotton Silver Eagle brand, still looks like new.

    Just as an update...
    The headstock is starting to grow on me... mainly because I am having such fun with the guitar.
    So far, I am playing the American Girl (Tom Petty) Solo part... at speed and accuracy.
    Best Friends Girl(friend) at speed and bends (so fun)
    Sultans of Swing effortless bendy parts.
    Oh... and I almost feel like I have long hair as I play Hysteria!
    It’s fun to play...

    That top wood looks like an interesting combo of burl and birds-eye to me.

    Looks like a fun instrument. Have you messed around with clean sounds on it yet? I’ve run into a few shred machines with surprisingly nice clean sounds hiding in them before. One of them was a HH-configuration and there was a coil tap switch that tapped both humbuckers in the in-between selector position. That sounded really cool for cleanish rhythm playing.

    Those EMG HZ's are quite nice sounding.
