Pictures look fine Marc and your going to love that guitar! Looks like an older 500 bridge which for a FR licensed model, probably not quite as good as the newer 580's. Find you an OFR and drop in there and she'll be golden! smile.gif

actually the trem is a schaller floyd which is pretty up there...OFR sounds good though! i might swap out the pick ups first though, i think EMGs are too much for me to handle smile.gif

My old 90's (or 80's?) Charvel is the best guitar, the wood sings and sustains like you can't belive it.
The FR licence is teriffic!!!! It's lasted almost 20 years and still stays in tune.

I'm sure you will be happy with it! I don't belive there are any better guitars than Charvel around wink.gif

Liscensed Floyd is not automaticly = Bad Floyd

Liscensed tremolos by companies like Schaller or Gotoh are at least as good as the original floyd rose so there is no need to swap anything on that guitar! And one guitar with EMGs is always good to have, there are some sounds you can only achieve with active pickups...

Oh and I guess you mean afterburner switch and not aftermarket^^
(EMG afterburner switch raises you volume on some db's and increases the gain, it's a great solo boost)

is that what an after burner is? because it looks like a normal 3 way toggle switch and it switches between pick ups wink.gif
