    Here's my personalized 2014 Melody Maker. Replaced speed knobs with reflectors, added Bad@ss style bridge, nitro lacquered headstock, added Kluson Revolution 19:1 tuners, added Junior pickguard. My next move is to replace the nut. This thing absolutely sings through my AC15C1. The slug style P90's are nice-n'-gritty.

    I sold the Gibson, and gave the Epi to my son. The Collings is not going anywhere... EDIT: also going to my son, but not just yet dammit. Maybe 30 years from now? :lol:

    I hope that these pictures are appropriate. I post them with respect and bittersweet memories from 2009.

    I spent about an hour at Discoverworld when the public go there to pay respect or pray. The variety of people that came through while I was there was very touching. I recall two guys with cowboy hats who came in and removed there hats followed by a mom with two little girls and the girls carried roses followed by two punk rockers who looked straight out of the 80's. Les Paul/Mary Ford music was playing overhead. It was weird. I felt very sad and very grateful. I kept thinking about the Tele and Les Paul that I had in college. Damn.

    What is this now? Can't believe I'm the first to ask. Looks like it was made for Jerry.

    Low impedance pickups. Except Mike's looks modded with regular PAFs...

    It is a Kay “Effector” the pickups are single coil that look like humbuckers.
