Ok, so last week I was in another town for my job, and during a lunch break I went with a colleague to the guitar shop. This somehow resulted in me buying what you see below. The guy in the shop set it up for me and sent it to my town, and I picked it up yesterday. Haven't had time to unpack it until now, but it was worth waiting for! It (she?) plays like a dream - be jealous!

And that case is so sexy wink.gif


Which year model is it ? I'm assuming that is RG1570 ?
I have 2005 model but not that maple neck dry.gif

And Team J. Craft FTW !!

It even sent me a text message saying "play me, pretty please", and in the car on my way home from I could here it calling from the back "play me, play me now!". I'm a fan of impulse buying. biggrin.gif

Oh, didn't know you were Swedish. tongue.gif The "hair spray" is probably the manual..

I would love to own a 7 stringer. But, honestly, 6 strings is still too many for me. smile.gif
About the model, keep guessing.

In fact, I do like the pickups. I have played EMG's recently, and come to like them a lot, but these seem somewhat more versatile. Oh well, we'll see if I still like them next week.

I have played 7's and even 8's. They still feel too wide. I guess it's something you'd get used to, but.. maybe next axe.
