    Dr. Rock for my FS1.

    Should we stay or should we go? For the cheap but good sounding single coil set on my AVRI.

    5BB5D7E8-908A-4769-A83B-4056291AA429.jpeg I installed an ESP/Emg “Passive” LH-301 Kirk Hammett LTD Signature Series Humbucker from his KH – 202. And the single pickup I have was already hotter then hell. Into my 03 Squier Showmaster HS. If I had to name my sound. I would call it. “Red Hot”. In respects to the guitarist I Favor most. Which is Mick Mars of Mötley Crüe. The Guitar itself seems to prefer playing Motley Crue.

    Additionally I wanna point out the guitar was a steel used at guitar center for 150 bucks because it was missing the tremolo arm that’s it once I put the hot rails in it I can contend With any top shelf guitar

    How about we name pots, while we're busy naming unsophisticated electrical components? Why is the 250k pot coldly named "250k pot"? Why not "the Easy Riders"? I'd call the 500k "Sharp Shooters", 1meg pots would be "MEGATONS". But I'd just call no-load pots "trash".

    Like scratch plate for pickguard. I’m not sure if fingerboard for fretboard is a British/American thing.
