    New Guitar Day : 2013 6129TG Green Sparkle Jet arrived today from forum member @nickurso. I have been eyeing this Jet with envy for years and now it’s mine to enjoy. I love the Setzer Sig pickups and Tru-Arc bridge mods that Nick has done, it’s exactly what I would have done also. I have a spare Tru-Arc Titanium SerpenTune bridge that may end up on this little beauty, but I’m going to keep it untouched for the moment. The original silver pickguard was included but I have decided to leave it off so I can see more of the green sparkly goodness. Thanks, Nick!
