    Really? The RG520QS is an oiled finish. I love that guitar - I walked into Music Go 'Round one day and bought it within five minutes of seeing it.

    I also have a black Aria Pro and a FrankenWashburn. I'll try to find pictures.

    You know I actually have two of those 520QSOL's stored away. Used to be my main guitars before the big migration (to Vigier). I have multiple Ibanez guitars that cost as much as 5 times what I got those for, and they still played and sounded better than all of them. But I play Vigier now. I happy. Happy. :)

    Here are pictures of my first electric guitar, an Aria Pro RS Stray Cat. I bought it new in 1984. In the later '80's, I added EMGs and a Kahler flat mount.

    idk why people get this confused

    signature=a line of guitars built to the specs of a famous players guitar but availaible to the public
    custom=a custom built guita rthat is one of a kind in the world.

    This is my very first electric. A $25 Kay department store guitar. It was bought at Montgomery Wards with a few knicks and dings and had a plastic "Clovis" emblem on the headstock but I now have found it was a Kay. Nothing special at all but special to me because I did so much work on it from the time I was 14 until 17. It was origionally Red, then I refinished it twice in natural, it was a maple body. But this time when I painted it white, I chisseled out for the gibson humbucker, that is a chrome gibson pup cover that I cut the center out of. I cut that lower cut away deeper for higher access, remember Im left handed so upside down as your looking at it is actually RIGHT side up :lol: That floating wood bridge was something I picked up cheap but it was an improvement over the origional bridge. The neck was also wide and very fat so it was narrowed and had alot of meat removed from the back. I also added the strat body scalp or what ever its called on the back side for rib comfort. Just found this photo and had forgotten I even had it, so Im happy.

    A single pup version of this otherwise exact guitar body & neck just sold for $190 on ebay, If I still had this it would be worth nothing due to the alterations, imagine that.
