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.

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