thanks! and i would love to do that, it seems like it would be so much fun!
and i kinda plugged it in, i just put on a low e to see if everything worked. although im not too happy with the neck pup, its way too quiet
I'd like to see a video of it played, especially on that stealth pickup.
Yeah, I think if you mount a neck pickup like that you need one that's fairly hot and mount it as close to the top of the body as possible. However, with a thick piece of plastic between the pickup and strings and the extra distance from the strings created by the pickguard, I doubt you'll get much out of it.
That's just my opinion and I've never tried it. Others may have had a different experience.
Please post whether you can make it work. I'm interested to hear about it.
no worries, i should have a video up by thursday or friday,although i dont think the stealth pickup is gonna stay, i tried it out and it just doesnt have enough output to give a loud signal
hey greg, yeah, you were right, i tried it out today and the stealth pickup cant be heard unless you crank the amp, and at that point it starts buzzing and it just sounds really bad. i think im gonna lose the neck pup for right now until i can figure out how to get it to work like the actual fenders do
Really sweet build and great quality work. The applewood neck is beautiful. If the stealth pickup doesn't work out it'll still be a brilliant esquire - I wouldn't sweat it. Cheers
the neck has a nice darker shade compared to the lighter body.
I would try maybe a hotter pickup, or just have an onboard boost just for the neck pickup?
I also really like the idea of a stealth esquire, but never seen it built, so if you made it work somehow, that would be really cool to see.
I love the finish on the body. The colour and the subtle, unfilled grain both look great. The neck looks very nice too.
Wow! very very nice indeed. Love esquires.
thanks! yeah, im really happy with the way the neck came out, i cant wait to get it set up so i can see what it sounds like!
yeah, i might try a really hot pup, but its still so far away from the string that im not sure if it will work. but a boost for the neck pup could work
thank you, i kinda like the whole "closet classic" look so thats why i did that. checking would be better but the unfilled grain gives a similar look
That is a beautiful guitar. Very cool watching it all come together like that.
I didn't watch/listen to this. I don't have speakers hooked up and am on a data account with verison which is incredibly expensive if you exceed the whopping 5GB monthy limit.
thank you! im glad you liked it!
yeah, thats actually the video that inspired me to put the pickup under the guard
and i actually just had a friend over and he plugged into my brothers marshall and the thing actually works pretty well, so i think im gonna keep it in
Thats a really sweet guitar mate, you did a grand job on it. I love esquires and LPJR's , there's just something special about 'em.
