That is glorious. Amazing work. I love it.
No need to pop over and still crap up. That is comparable to any custom shop and kind of exceeds them really. Amazing work attention to detail. Crazy ocd level attention to detail which is why this looks the way it does. Probably feels great and super slick.
@rolandson If this popped up on that thread I would have said the exact same thing. Why would anyone hate on this work of art?
pups look kind of weird, otherwisse cool
There ya go making assumptions again.
Nowhere did I write, or even imply, anything representative of "hate"... let alone even dislike.
Normally, I might be inclined to offer edification into the reasoning behind my thoughts, despite my belief that it's plainly obvious. But not today. After reading through that thread, I've concluded that it would be wasted effort.
Why say it then, why not just say you like this guitar. Not go post in the that thread, twice you mentioned it. You wanted to prove me wrong or prove something, me assuming again.
You’re right, this one does prove me wrong. Your $600 build doesn’t. This one wasn’t slapped together over the weekend or built in the woods.
Attention to detail, time and effort, trial and error(I’ll assume) went into this and it shows. It still probably wasn’t cheap and probably took months to complete.
Dang! f n Beautiful!
High output and quack. What pickups?
Neither was mine.
Oh, and @vid1900
In case there is any confusion, I think your work is stunningly beautiful. I would absolutely love to feel that...
Schaller roller tremolo with replaceable knife edges
Whoa! That's a stunner.
What pickups are in there?
Did you fabricate wooden bobbins to replace the stock plastic?
Those little F#$%#&s have killed off almost ALL the Ash trees on my 200 acres in Michigan, you go into the woods and all you see is dead or dying trees. What the Ash Borer hasn't killed, the pine beetle or oak wilt are killing the rest, sad. Nice looking guitar though ...
They are Seymour Duncan Invaders
But, I modified the bridge pickup by flipping all the magnets (there are 3 of them), to reverse the polarity.
Then by using a **SuperSwitch** she has 5 positions:
1. Bridge humbucker
2. Outside coils of each pickup (quack)
3. Both humbuckers
4. Inside coils of each pickup (quack)
5. Neck humbucker
500k CTS pots, .047 caps, Oak SuperSwitch
Awesome guitar. The slaughter of all the Ash trees is terrible though. Maybe that hot rodded guitar will send out some supersonic sound waves that make the borer fly back to wherever it came from. Why no Floyd Rose? They are finnicky but if they work right they never go out of tune. The rolling trem does look cool though, nice that you can change the knife edges.
I've installed so many FR, I guess I'm just no longer a fan.
I have one on my superstrat and one on my Ibanez.
I've put the FR Rail Tail on a few customer's guitars, with the LSR nut rather than the FR locking nut. Pretty good combination. Fast string changes and no headache set ups.
All I can say is "KILLER"!!!
Beautiful guitar and I like the creativity for the body. It needs feelers like the borer - LOL
Just don't trim the strings.
Agreed however, the look of awe is worth it. I am completing a custom strat pearl white base hand rubbed silver powder 999 over blue looks wicked sick I chose poplar long sustain I made the 2 pcs pick-guard all original fender pots linear, taper. Correct caps Planet Tone winds mine bridge is reverse overwound, 1954 Fender specs. I mock them then play them. If a trem can't return to neutral then it's not right. I use Wilkinson's or Bazics. And they are bad ass. Good call on the ash.
