    '07 R9 aka 'Ghostburst'

    HM A (Dave Johnson)
    Nice plastics (Vintage Haven pu rings)
    Uncle Lou Premium tuner tips
    Correct TRC
    DMC Jackplate
    TusQ nut
    RS solid Aluminium TP
    Callaham steel ABR-1
    Pigtail steel TP studs + correct bushings
    Correct thumbwheels (Retrospec, brass)
    Pigtail heat-treated steel ABR-1 posts
    SD Dave Stephens '59 NOS wire pickups
    Throbak pu covers
    Jensen Copper foil PIO caps
    Calibrated Dr Vintage pots w/ '59 wiring

    Sorry cannot remember all the plastics! I prefer lighter pu rings and a darker (yellowish) pickguard.
    I did the mods primarily for tone, second for looks. I'm very happy with the results!

    I only have 2 RI's/ In my BB7 I changed the Gold Grovers to waffle backs with vintage tulips. I aged the covers and went with a SD Custom in the bridge. On the R7 Goldtop I have a set of SD Antiquities. Both guitars look, play and sound great to me so I don't have any further plans except wiring the BB7 for one PU hot in each of the 3 toggle positions.
