Sept. 2, 2019: This is a very well used piece.
No octave adjustment, saddles in the wrong order, insert blocks all cracked in the saddle, and the bridge spring was tightened to the limit so the stud on the first string side was falling forward.
All PUs had been replaced, starting from the rear with a Dimarzio DP155F Tone Zone/unknown stack type (broken wire)/Seymour Duncan TB-5J (old type without logo).
The bridge has a Floyd Rose Original logo and the studs are wood screw type, so I think it is from the 90s.
2019.10.29: The studs were replaced and repaired from the wood screw type to the anchor type, the paint was lifted at the border between the skunk stripe and the neck, and the frets were rubbed together using Plek.
All PUs are Duncan, but the front PU could not be installed as it is structurally, so we had them modify the PU.
The neck shape is a trapezoid neck with a tighter V shape than the T's, and the fingerboard edge is quite angular, which was a common specification of Japanese guitars in the 90's. The insert blocks are all titanium.
All insert blocks have been replaced with titanium ones.
2019.11.27: I got a genuine Killer PU and replaced it.
2020.5.8:The center PU is now a Duncan SSL-3.
I had to go a long way from the stacked singles that were on the kit when I bought it, to the extra ones I had on hand, to the Bartolini that didn't sound right due to interference problems with the counterbore, to the SSL-3 that solved the output balance and counterbore problems....
I wired the humbuckers to be coil-tapped in the halftone.
2021.12.2: I replaced the rusted screws on the bridge and lock nut with stainless steel ones, and the spring hanger with a brass one.
The mini-switch was replaced with a 12-pin 3-on switch to create the original switch effect wiring, so it can now be made to sound like a pseudo 3-single.
The stud on the first string side was broken during installation, so I replaced it with a new one.
I found out the other day that the early model with Floyd Rose Original was a semi-order with up-charging and it is the same period as the one with Schaller S-FRT-2.
2021.12.31: I replaced the center PU with an SSL-5RWRP to match the polarity of the magnet, because I wanted to use the adjustable polepiece side when I coil-tapped it.
2022.10.10:I sold it considering the two FIDES and the finish.
