Hopefully a picture of the action pops up...I've been very curious about what exactly they modified. Love the red finish though laugh

Not sure if anyone has posted or watched this video, but it gives a lot of insight into the modification process (with pictures) performed by Ravensworks Design on the VPC1.

Oooooo. Pretty. I thought the original was cool looking.

Thanks for this video. I am super interested in this topic. Looking at the action it seems like there might be some things that are tweakable and I'd love it if it could be reasonably modified, like the action in an acoustic could be.
