is that really a custom

madeofmetal 2006-02-27 19:00

im not sure, i thought they were all custom. it just says "Ran"

Not trying to doubt you or anything, but this looks really suspicious, are you the original owner? Ran custom w/ no-name pickups and a licensed floyd? Also, the bolt on construction looks a little weird.

The tuners don't even match... :p

Yea, kinda looks like 'set-neck-but-couldn't-be-arsed'. That upper strap pin doesn't look too strong either :( I really like that body shape though its a BVII or something i think :)

YJM04 2006-02-27 21:56

that looks like a chop shop ran

Transient 2006-02-28 06:38

if i was going to buy this id email dariusz this thread

brainsforbreakfast 2006-02-28 08:38

looks like a cheap chinese imitation to me :confused:

OpethFan 2006-03-01 03:54

Possibly someone got a really cheap RAN ordered? Tranny's right though, if I were interested I'd link those pics to D and see wat he says.

Soeru 2006-03-05 12:40

Doesn't look authentic... could be a pile o crap and you spray painted a RAN decal on the headstock...

It looks like Ran will have to start using serial numbers now, if they haven't already.

DeathCS 2006-03-05 17:33

that neck joint is called AANJ. its common

$475 seems to be a good price if its actually a Ran. Emailied big D about this would be wise, since he'd probably recognize a guitar like this.

Thats a really weird guitar. I don't really like the shape, and the neck pickup being offset doesn't help. I know that's not a problem, but it's something. The neck looks fine though, dunno bout the rest. Would need some upgrades. Weird shape, can't get over it, Never seen anything like it before.. is it a copy? Original? the shapes on the site look nothing like this one.

And Yes, the neck joint is an All-Access-Neck-Joint. IMO those are better than bolt, ons, more places to slip your fingers in.

philkilla 2006-03-26 13:52

hey uhhhhh......looks like your neck pickup is a little crooked there..

HalfmastTrousers 2006-04-19 09:30

Prove to me this is an actual Ran and I'll take it.

*insert name here* 2006-04-23 23:58

Chances are the original seller replaced thepickups with some stock ones out of another guitar,same with the liscenced Floyd.Other than that,it looks genuine to me.

Robbie Filth 2006-04-24 02:43

Why doesn't someone actuallt email dariusz about this?
