Beautiful guitar, congrats.
Right on General, good stuff! You're welcome man!
I need to spend time with them before deciding on what.... if anything. I played it for maybe 10 minutes, and didn't evaluate every point....that's usually done at home.
I swap a lot of pickups because I think I'm chasing the ultimate combination....(which doesn't really exist ...hint)
You really have to decide what it has..... too much of...... or what's it missing... from your tone pallet.
Start with the pots and see how they respond to your needs. Some players never use them....on 10 all the time....others use three positions 10, 5 and 1 or 2. I'm a three position user....when your live, you don't have time to be too selective. I also use it to swell a note ....
Evaluate when you need to clean up....does the volume control work like a fader or a switch? Does it muddy up when you turn down? (most do)
After you evaluate the pots, and your still missing something, look into pickups....but be careful here because that's a crap shoot too...
In the end your amp settings and musicianship are vital.. and remember dynamics are key to being "the Anchor" I played anchor for a long long time, in fact I prefer it...
That is most triumphant. Enjoy!
Thanks @Sct13 . Appreciate the info. Right now all is good, the only possible tone mod may be the pick guard.
I should note that by referring to myself as anchor, I mean I drag the rest of the band down. You were the anchor in a good way, me not so much.
Don't be so hard on yourself. It takes guts to get up on stage. You have this man!
I get it, we were all there once.
It does take guts, and if your doing it and keep practicing you’ll be pro by the end of the year!
I decided to help some old band mates with playing bass .... im not a bass player!!! I felt like an anchor.... but I might have this down, its fun...
Hey now Mr.....first off, thank you for the kudos, but let's not go too far with this. The band has been a great group project. No anchors on this boat, it's sailing just fine! You are workin' you ass off and sounding great! Saturday night will be a blast!!
Now that's a goddamned guitar. Play 'er in good health, brotha, and kudos to FB for cuttin' an honest deal.
Beautiful Guitar. It's Good to have Friends in Low Places...
