    That's what I though too, and why I chose him to re-wind my Shaws!

    Some butt-plug in the past wax dipped them and ruined them before I got it!

    But my ears can tell the difference, so I've decided to do something about it!

    Hearing and seeing his vintage wire re-winds a while back and a few others on the show you mentioned made me think more seriously about getting them re-wound.

    I'm not selling it, and they are already ruined, so I figure I've got nothing to lose!

    I'm sending him the pups so he can re-use the magic magnets and all, he even has the red poly wire to redo them with!

    I'm gonna be feeling like you in a few weeks! I've never heard the true sound of these, but it's not like they don't sound good now. Just solid and heavy with no overtones or thickness or breadth.

    Enjoy them!

    Congrats!

    I'd love to hear what your thoughts are on these compared with your ECP HG's, I've been eying a set of these (though the '58s) as they sound phenomenal on all the clips I've heard!

    Good heavens NO! :Ohno: That would be heresy! :run:
    That would be like the firemen we caught a while back setting their own fires for something to do! :shock:

    Your sig says it all!
