Hey GMC:ers !

I bought an another guitar ! Esp-Ltd K-500. It's a LP shape guitar.

QUOTE
Construction: Set neck
Scale: 25.5”
Body: Mahogany
Neck/Fretboard: 3-pc. maple/rosewood
Inlays: Cold spiders w/name at 12th Fret
Pickups: EMG-HZ H-4
Electronics: Volume, tone, 3-way toggle
Hardware: Black
Bridge: TonePros locking w/string-thru-body
Frets: 24 XJ
Colors: BLKS


I sold my Jackson COW6 because it didn't feel right at the end. And lack of neck pick up wasn't good. So I sold it and bought this Esp-Ltd and new pick ups. Seymour Duncan Jazz and Distortion models. This guitar had passive EMG HZ pickups but I'm not keen on EMG so I swapped those out myself.

Here's the earlier topic

Everything is ready !!



Man, fretboard was sh***y ! The last owner did not clean it often...



One to go !!



Almost there !!



Finally !!




Now this guitar feels and plays like a dream !!

Cheers !!
