Mikro RG...I am so doing this...

Current mood: giddy

So I thought it would be a hoot to play a Squier mini the other day at Guitar Center. Call me crazy but it was actually a lot of fun. A bit too little for what I'd consider usable (Mainly due to the lack of frets) but pretty cool nonetheless. Upon a visit to a 2nd GC that day (Long story), I came across a Mikro RG.
 
24 frets, dual humbuckers, fixed bridge, and this tiny RG shape...I was mesmerized. So I picked it up and for $130, I'm sold. I'm hoping to pick one up this weekend and plans are as follows...
 
Black Tuners (The factory tuners are a fairly common gripe on the Mikro)
Black Dome knobs
Black Bridge (This might be a bit tricky)
Black String retainers
Black Schaller strap locks
Black Pickguard screws
D'addario 11-49s tuned standard
 
The kicker...I have a spare set of EMG 81s floating around. A good once over and a good setup later and this guitar will be completely gig ready. I'll be able to carry it on a plane, put it in my pocket when I go to a party, and it will cost less than $200 all said and done.

sounds cool, but i actually saw people taking acoustic guitars onto planes as handl luggage just this summer, so i guess you don't have to worry about having a smal guitar to take it on a plane

Interesting...Still, the smaller the better. There is something to be said for ease of portability.
