    NPD Ron Ellis 54s review

    Earlier today i reviewed my new slider 59s in my fiesta red FSR strat. Well im reviewing this one as well and i must say this one was a bit harder to get right but it was worth the struggle.

    NPD Slider 59s in my fiesta red strat

    I haven't done a pickup review in some time but i just picked afew axes from my guitar tech and this was one of them. The guitar is a squier classic vibe FSR fiesta red with gold hardware stratocaster. It's been fitted with: Slider 59s pickups *they're non RWRP like all my pickups*...

    How many pounds would you consider *heavy* for a stratocaster?

    8 pound les Paul is pretty standard to me but a 8 pound strat is pretty heavy. I have a pine tele that's that heavy but it sounds great. In my experience, heavier guitars sound brighter typically than the lighter ones

    How many pounds would you consider *heavy* for a stratocaster?

    I never knew what the typical strat should weigh. But my question is in your opinion what would you consider heavy? Does a guitar's weight dictate whether or not you'll buy a guitar? And also for those of you that it doesn't deter or had experience with heavy guitars would you say they sound...

    Ron Ellis or gil yaron pickups

    I got out my tele jazzmaster and jaguar. Haven't taken the les Paul with the flametone 59s out yet. But according to my guitar tech he says they're pretty good. His exact word: Honeyburst with flametone: good separation of tonal quality and great middle position. Maybe toy around with...

    Fernandes le-2g tremolo block upgrade question

    I just took a look inside my Fernandes le-2g and it's the thinnest piece of pot metal i ever seen it was thinner than the blocks in my classic vibe squiers lol. I wanna upgrade the block but i have no clue what the correct spacing for it is. Ive heard its 2 7/32 but i wanna be sure before i...

    Is it Worth It Upgrading From Custombuckers to Boutique PAF's? (Video)

    Freddie king has great PAF tone as well. His recordings from like 1966 when he switched to that Mickey mouse ear red Gibson es-345, his tone with humbuckers was always VERY honky. You could tell his picking attack was aggressive and he was pushing some serious air playing very loud but...
