Completed so I thought I'd post the pics. Turned out pretty much as I'd envisioned. Sounds great but still tweaking the setup. Pickup height affect the sound alot. Wired with the cocked wah wiring. Enjoy!
Time to start a new "build". Got the body and PG today from Warmoth. Found I already had a neck plate and control plate in the bin. Not quite going relic per se but definitely kind of a rustic look. Will be painting the body with grey-green milk paint. Have an Allparts neck on the way...
Been awhile but time for a new project.
Making a Telemaster esquire using a Warmoth Jazzcaster body.
Wondering what the best neck would be bang for buck-wise. Not looking to go super cheap like Mighty Mite but proper Fender neck prices are insane. Trying to maintain a modest budget for this...
Picked this up today at L&M. First LP (had an Agile once). Loving this guitar! I'm typically a Fender guy but you gotta have an LP right?
I tried the faded Studio, the Traditional, regular Studio and the Tribute. L&M also had these interesting "exclusive" to them Classics with 4 knobs and...
Clearing out some gear
Warmoth La Cab
Gibson USA SG
Warmoth Jazzmaster Body Lollar P90s...
Anyone ever sold off all but one? How'd it work out? Dunno why but feel the need to simplify. I don't play much so most of my guitars just sit in cases but I feel I'd regret it. Maybe I'm just bored. Do you really need more than this...
So I decided I wanted to convert my old Warmoth to a 12 string but it has a TOM bridge. After scouring the internet and eBay I decided to take a chance on this bridge. Got it today and fits exactly in place of the old Gotoh 6 string. Very happy. Was about $40 all in and is made by the same...
Well today I traded an MIJ Tele for a 2012 SG Standard.
I've never had, never ever played a Gibson before. I had an Epi Les Paul years ago and an Agile AL3000 more recently. Both guitars were good, the Agile was actually a pretty spectacular instrument but both I found to be way too heavy...
Not sure what y'all think of this young man but I for one am glad to see a bit of raw, unmassaged talent in the top 40. We need more of this and less One Direction/Bieber/Kanye/Nickelback-ness.
Seems quite Dylan-y with a dash of Oasis. Some nice pickin' on our fave git ta boot!
First off, not to be insensitive if there are any sad circumstances but I've noticed a distinct lack of posts from Mark Davis. Anyone know where he's gone? He was a major contibutor here and seems to have dropped off of TDPRI.
Wondering if I should just rewire as is or change everthing out (pots, switch, pup, etc).
With just two caps I could wire per the Eldred mod and be done with it.
Or I could swap out everything the benefit being it would be easy to return to stock.
Anyone have any experience in this regard?
I received my new MIJ Tele today. I'll be changing it over to an Esquire but first I thought I'd compare them for anyone who's interested.
Many people ask if Japanese Fender guitars are a good buy; are they close in quality to MIAs. The price gap between the two can be substantial so, since...
Picked this beauty up brand new from Ishibashi. Japan to Canada in 3 days. Bar none the best packaging job I've ever seen.
Decent setup out of the box. Beautiful finish with lovely binding. Very similar to my MIA Thinskin 62RI terms of feel and weight. Vintage frets though as opposed to...
