Nice work! have you clear pics of your switch tips? I am looking for something dark.
Scored some sweet 70's Gold Grovers!
Here they are next to modern Gold
and fully installed
Just got it in today, man this thing is KILLER! He was even kind enough to throw in one of his switch tip's as a gift! What a great guy! I installed both immediately...excuse the cell phone quality
^^ Wow both look great. Where is that from?
Montreux Toggle Chip, Martin Six String Customs Switch Tip, ThroBak Rings, and Mojoaxe Guard on my 2009 R8.
They're from Wizz
For $40 it really can't be beat in my honest opinion!
Also that guitar is gorgeous! Great upgrades kracdown
Thanks! Forgot to mention my RS Knobs and Throbak covers. I think the Montruex is a bit too aged. The Wizz looks a lot whiter... Might go with that.
Nice those Throbak covers are just awesome! Yeah I have a Montreux chip as well and the Wizz is definitely lighter in color and I like the font a whole lot better...doesn't wipe away over time as the montreux and vintage clones do.
Just ordered my Wizz...
pickup cover comparison.
Standard Gibson covers
Bare Knuckle Pickups
Gibson Gold Top Hats on the left, Art of Ageing on the right
Monster Relic rings and MojoAxe guard.
The rings are not the correct height. The bridge is fractionally lower, the neck ring at the front is about half the correct height (when measured against standard Historic rings)
Martin6String knobs and pointer washers
Wizz Pickups and Wizz Pickup Rings. I'll try and take some better pictures in the sunshine (whenever that happens). The bone/cream colour of the Wizz rings contrasts quite nicely with the heavily aged MojoAxe guard.
Throbak Rings, MojoAxe pickguard, Stew Mac poker chip, RS knobs, Gibson historic switch tip.
Callaham Bridge, 2" Brass posts for treble.stainless for bass (Mapleflame mod), regular Gotoh Brass tailpiece studs, Duncan Antiquity pickups/covers, Gibson historic lightweight tailpiece.
I'm considering installing the pickguard on my Blacktop gloss 2011 R7, it came without the guard installed or holes drilled.
Does everyone recommend the MojoAxe guard (for post 2009 r#s) as a bit better looking than the stock guard?
It's less pink/'Barbie flesh' than the stock Historic
The sun came out!!
Wizz Pickups, Wizz Pickup Rings, MojoAxe Guard, Martin6String aged knobs and pointer washers.
The Area59 tailpiece is really nice. Definitely much more handmade looking than the Historic. Historic weighed 33g, Area59 32g. Last two pics show how it fits on Retrospec long studs.
