    57 custom shop strat legit?

    I’m aware of the polarizing effect a heavy relic has on the masses. I will say this relic job is a bit extreme but I’ve played other custom shop strats that are “not worn out” and nothing has come close to the playability and feel this guitar had. Maybe all that wear is what’s contributing to...

    57 custom shop strat legit?

    I was browsing the vault at guitar center yesterday when a 57 heavy relic custom shop strat caught my eye. Not a huge fan of the relic treatment but this guitar had a lot going for it. The feel of the neck and buttery smooth frets we’re unlike any other strat I’ve played. I plugged it into my...

    what do you think of my new partscaster?

    I like it! My small recommendation is to use single slot nickel screws on the pickguard to complete the 50s look. Nice tele!

    NPD(New Pickup Day) Bootstrap Vintage High Wind Jazz Bass

    This was my first bass and it made me fall in love with the instrument. I have since picked up an American Original P Bass but still find myself playing this paranormal Jazz Bass more often. It is extremely balanced and comfortable to play. No neck dive and the neck is probably one of the most...

    NPD(New Pickup Day) Bootstrap Vintage High Wind Jazz Bass

    These badboys just came in the mail after a much anticipated wait. I could not be happier with them! Dropped in easily without any issue. Breathed new life into my Squier Paranormal Jazz bass! Way more output and clarity than the stock pups. I might actually enjoy this bass more than my American...

    No more Rose pickups

    I've got a similar story to you! What branch were you in? I was a Hospital Corpsman in the Navy. I'm using my GI Bill now for school. Finished my MBA at USC when I got out and now I'm getting a second masters in business analytics at UC Irvine. All paid for by Uncle Sam.
