Modifications

The original DiMarzio pickups were removed long before I got the guitar. (I believe) the pickups currently in it are Duncan '59's. The original pots and cap were not up to my quality standard, so I replaced them with CTS and an Orange Drop, but the originals are in the case. The saddles were replaced with larger ones before I got the guitar. I replaced them with the correct size saddles to correct the string spacing.

I bought this guitar from my friend, the late Eddie Rendini (Darwin's Waiting Room), after he got his Ibanez endorsement in '99.

Love these Rock Machines!
