I'm annoyed to discover the tailpiece model only comes in green Sad

They would sold so many if they did it in black, I would have bought at least several

I just bought the RS502. P90s with wraparound bridge.


I played a demo which blew the fucking doors off my Toronado. They seem constructed like the Vox SCC/SDC guitars but lighter. A lot lighter. Bright like between a Jazzmaster and a Tele but with better sustain. The "Dry Switch " plays clean and the tone and volume are pretty damn sensitive in a good way. A lot of guitar for the money . I like it so much I might just get the rs820cr. Just have to figure what I have to sell to make room.

That looks really cool. I think I've said it before in this thread but I love that headstock.

Nice. I tried out the Revstar 420 the other day and it was pretty sweet.

Well it came in. Did a review on OSG so I won't be redundant with the same . Well, maybe the pics.

Super balanced guitar. The feel is a lot like the Vox SCC/SDC 33 and 55 models.
Weight was 7.8lbs .Almost as much as my Mustang 69RI which weighed in at 7.6lbs. Had to weigh it to kinda shut up an OSGer who claimed it heavy.
Satin finish hardware is nice, satin paint is pretty but your finger prints get on it and can be tough to clean. 3 way switch is my least favorite feature but it works, the dry switch makes the p90s go from p90 to a Jag like single coil. Pickups are great which was a shocker. And they're quiet.
The build is VERY nice. Perfect binding, finish, etc. Consider Epiphone Elite.
Blows away my old SG and my Toronado by leaps and bounds.
It's so nice I'll probably buy the RS820CR next. I'm pretty blown away by it for the money spent on it.

Nice score - congrats!

I wasn't keen on the headstock at first but it's grown on me now. Really nice looking guitars.
