    SOLD: OX4 Pickups Beano Set (Never Installed) $250

    I have a set of OX4 Beanos here, this is an aged set, A3 magnets. This was an extra set I ordered and never installed, kept it untouched with all the original packaging included. Trying to move these to grab a pedal I've been wanting for some time now. Neck reads 7.5 ohms, bridge 8.2 ohms...

    1979 Greco EG600PR?

    Exactly! I think you'll be pleasantly surprised. But yep, the UDs are ceramic pickups; they're really great ones though. I definitely prefer them to Super Distortions or Gibson 490/498s for example. Also, I've heard of some people swapping in Alnico 2/3/5 magnets in for a bit of a different...

    1979 Greco EG600PR?

    Hard to say, I don't know if these ones had veneers; it's a plain top so I'd lean towards no but I can't confirm that one unfortunately. Pickups are the right ones though, and better these ones than the DiMarzios. I really like the Greco/Maxon humbuckers. But I think you'll love it! I'm no fan...

    1979 Greco EG600PR?

    The 600s are chambered, but that honestly doesn't detract from the guitar at all. I had one of the Peter Frampton EG-600s and it was still a really solid feeling, awesome guitar. Sounded great too, the pickups were spectacular. It's one of the better Les Pauls I'd ever had.

    2011 Black Beauty 3-PU '60 Reissue

    Too cool. What an awesome guitar. Interesting that there are so many Japan only runs, I had no idea as to the extent of these. I'll have to keep my eyes peeled for one to pop up, ideally a '60 with a stoptail if I can find one.

    2011 Black Beauty 3-PU '60 Reissue

    Awesome. Definitely wanting to look into these, I borrowed my friend's '57 BB for a bit and the neck was just too big; otherwise I loved the guitar. Seems like these would be the perfect option for neck profile with that same full mahogany body 50's Custom sound.

    2011 Black Beauty 3-PU '60 Reissue

    Interesting, sounds like this would've been a run in really small numbers if only a few have popped up in basically the last decade. Is there any way I could confirm or get more info? Really curious about these.

    3 Pickup LP Variants

    Thank you! I'd gotten it (relatively) cheap on Craigslist a year back and ended up flipping it some time ago. I gig/do fill in and occasional session work in my spare time and didn't want to see the Budokan get beat to hell. It's now in the hands of a KISS megafan and collector, which...

    1999 R7 Black Beauty Neck Profile

    Hey all, I've been in contact with a guy who has a 1999 R7 Black Beauty he's considering trading me for my R0 and some cash; he's a bit too far off for me to go just to test it out, if I make the drive it's going to have to be more or less a sure thing. I've only had a chance to play an R7 in...

    2021 Wizz Pickups

    Which ones did you get? The Premium PAF or some of the Artist sets? Looking at these myself.

    If you had to pick three guitars to do "everything" which ones would you pick?

    1. '59 or '60 neck/specs Les Paul with PAF or PAF style pickups 2. EDS-1275 (hopefully it's not cheating, two guitars in one basically) 3. Firebird with P90s tuned a half step down This would cover pretty much everything I play. The vintage style LP needs no explanation. 12 string neck on the...
