    Hallo, Gold Top aficionados, here's my 2015 Deluxe Special. Came to me mid 2019, was modded (Schaller tuners, electronics removed and rewired 50 style, no coil taps). I'm a big fan of these 2015 necks and those Robotuners from Hamburg, Germany. So I reinstalled the original hardware, back to...

    Hendrix timing

    I fully subscribe to that! For my 65 Bday as a surprise for my friends and family I wanted to record another session.
