    Here is the bridge from the Avenger. It is a JT-580 Takeuchi.
    It is a full double locking bridge, stamped Charvel, that was used on some Charvette guitars from the same time.
    Most Avenger guitars have the single locking JT-570 bridge.

I have more time at home with the nice lady that lets me touch her, more time in the home studio so maybe I can finally play some of the thousands of $$ in gear I have instead of just collecting, and just generally more fun times. Except... I'm drinking beer more often and put on about 15# in the last 6 months or so... Then, 6 weeks ago, knee surgery.. Month off work (another good thing as it was paid) and ...
  4. Revealed

    Today I took the tape off to see how my paint job turned out.
    This is my first attempt at a project guitar. Although it is not perfect, it is alright.
