Now I can dial in pretty much everything I need from bright and jangly to balls out rock/metal. They are great instruments but may need seasoning to taste.




    the thing that bugs me most about Rics is that people cry heresy when you go to mod them. they're great playing and sounding instruments. but a couple of simple mods and they're beasts. the bridge pickup now has almost as much treble as my telecaster. i always said that this Ric didn't jangle. it sure does now.

    There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that "my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge." - Isaac Asimov, Newsweek (21 January 1980)

        Hope you're happy now that you're doomed to Ric hell for desecration.

                    I love the 330 I just picked up today.



                    I feel like its the perfect guitar. I'll miss my 360 a lot but its a guitar and I got one hell of a guitar in return.

                        Whew... I was expecting a Floyd. Does your fretboard need oiling/cleaning?

                                That's what I thought, but it looks "splotchy" in that pic. Could just be the lighting.
