I don't think Kerri expected it to play again.

Congratulate him on his choice of Keens :) I've had mine for 4 years now and they're still awesome. They've done serious Km's too. I did the crossing in them once.

This is turning into a bit of an ibanez resto thread.
A Korean rg321 in a really cool blue colour has arrived, and now it's time to rip into it.

Image

Image

Think this was cosmo black at some stage. Quite a bit of corrosion going on.

Image

Image

Some meh tier playing marks I get to try buff out.

Image

Cloudy knob.

Image

Colour :D

Image

Good frets - These will be cleaned up and that's it :lol:

Image

Image

Good whack of dust. Suggests it was sitting a while.

Image

Bridge pickup. R model, apparently.

Image

No treasure in here.

Image

5 way thingy looks heaps chunkier than the plastic unit in the ex350 (and indonesian rg321).

Image

Removing neck pickup reveals a barcode telling us about an ibane.

Image

Image

No other treasure here though, just an F model pickup with a D on it (???).

Image

Colour :D :D :D

Image

Ahh. More marks to buff out.

Image

Let's mask up the important bits and get to it.
Everything is in about a thousand pieces and ready to go.

Image

Even covered in wax it looks cool. Bonus round: Turning pickups upside down works better than trying to mask the magnet side we see.

Image

Satin metallic finish, hmm . . . .

Image

So while all the wax is crusting up nicely (jb alert), it's time t-... Urh, yeah. This.

Image

Frets always turn these things black.

Image



I will do more werk to it today. Not sure if torn cartilege or (another) cracked rib way up top, but if it becomes a problem, progress will slow.
