    Very cool. Custom wound for $130 seems like a killer deal!

    Maybe I should come up with a Canadian themed set! What’s a famous river in Canada I could name it after? Maybe “The Mackenzie”?

    Maybe the Canadiens can comment...
    Having lived in Minnesota
    My only memories of Canada are...
    Ducks
    Northern pike...
    And
    Muskellunge...
    And
    Racing at Thunder Bay...

    I grew up near the Saint John River, which is quite well known and large. It also had a section called the Reversing Falls, which might make a good analogy to an RWRP pickup.

    The tone should be warm, open, and engaging. Of course, it should get real mean when attacked. But you will need to work hard to get it to that point. Also, it should mix well with just about anyone else's style and tone.

    I’m old now, but used to skate quite well. I’ve got a few of my old boards and a bunch of the reissues of the ones I couldn’t afford years ago.
    Wish my knees could still do it, it’s probably what did them in!!
    No regrets.
    Cheers!

    The Similkameen is a cool name. Good call on that.

    The Yukon River and the Klondike River, Fraser River, Thompson River are all well known because of the Gold Rush. There’s also the Columbia which stretches south into the US and borders Washington and Oregon.

    Thanks! I’ve actually had the Yukon planned for a future humbucker that I plan on offering!

    Go "anti-Canadian"

    Brand the set the "No Apologies"

    hahahaha.

    You're welcome.....and being a true Canadian, no need to thank me, just run with it!

    :thumb::thumb::thumb:

    Of course, being the giver of the name sake, I get first dibbs on set #1! Personally signed!
