    Mine's a '13.
    Screwed the pickups WAY down and went to .o47 caps.
    I'm liking it!
    Wish it had P90s though!

    I moved my pickups way down too. What did the cap change do for you?

    The pickups still had a little harsh edge to my ears.
    It seems with the 047 cap, as soon as I roll off a little from 10, that edge softens up and it sounds fatter.

    Never been to BC.
    Are most of the guitars backward up there?
    I thought that would be more of a southern hemisphere thing.

    kinda like the coriallis effect for guitar playing,no its a pleasure for people who think outside the sphere, finding lefty guitars that are players is a challenge so i try to get them when I can.

    And I thought he meant the 2 glowing dildoes flanking the lava lamp.

    those are epoxy moulds of a Trex tooth a friend of mine found while dino hunting in Alberta (The detail is astonishing they have serated edges down the front side of them.)

    They make cool lamps but are very rude looking from a distance, agreed

    Now if any one talks to Rick have him return my bradcaster , he wont return my calls,
    may be its the lamps scared him.

    My 2004 FBV Golded Out

    wound my own pickups too using:

    A4 mags (I cut)
    Gibson's bobbins with 42 purple/brown vintage wire
    No wax potting.
    Found gold Kluson banjo tuners at Parts Is Parts in Vermont.

    If someone can send me to a site where I can post a few sound clips, I will.

    Been going back and forth between that and the sg standard. How do you like the neck? is it a 50's style, or the slim?

    I believe it's spec'ed as a slim taper. It doesn't have the baseball bat feel of something like a '59 reissue LP.
