    Too many humbuckers

    If anyone wants to trade for some EMG 80/84 with all the little bits that go with them, im always looking for old foils and odd shaped pickups

    Fender Jazzblaster / Jazzmaster Lee Ranaldo Custom Shop

    So it’s a revoiced pickup in the ranaldo jazzmaster, but doesn’t use the cunife magnet. Fender has had them agaib since 2020 and based on what I have here, are prototyping different versions of pickups with the cunife magnet. Hopefully they’ll do the jazzmaster sized single coil with some so I...

    Fender Jazzblaster / Jazzmaster Lee Ranaldo Custom Shop

    Though I do have a fender made Cunife p90 now that you mention it… granted not a HB and not the jazzmaster size… but it gets me to thinkin.

    Fender Jazzblaster / Jazzmaster Lee Ranaldo Custom Shop

    Hmmmm… good point. It really is the Lee ranaldo jazzmaster BASED on the jazzblaster to be more accurate. The stripped down wiring etc.

    Gibson Les Paul Special Tribute DC

    Finally got everything all put together. Ready to go…. Annnnnd nothing works well. One pickup semi functioning, the other almost nothing. One magnet is much stronger than the other just using basic touch and feel with a screwdriver. So I switch that pickup out, I’ll deal with it later…. I...

    The dreaded Les Paul Robot - Purple

    I remember when I took off the saddles for something there was an electronic hookup there. I was wondering what that was! I’m not super advanced when it comes to the robot stuff. I kept hearing how people absolutely hated them so I didn’t even play around and immediately removed them. I always...

    The dreaded Les Paul Robot - Purple

    Thanks for all of the kind words! I love the looks of it, kept the robot tuners in a bag with it in case I ever change my mind but I did have to ream out the holes to get the Grover’s in. There are computer parts under the bridge and tailpiece that I’ve kept intact, but in order to do stuff...

    epiphone Les Paul Custom Black Beauty upgraded

    Another term for knob pointers. You see how they point up and are spikey? If you’re playing and changing volume very fast they can “make one’s thumb bleed” - this they earned the nickname thumb bleeders. I’d never knew the proper term of “pointers” until after I had to buy some.

    Fender Jazzblaster / Jazzmaster Lee Ranaldo Custom Shop

    I do have some string slippage when playing hard and fast with it. Yeah def no CS serial nor COA. So in the end it’s just an American jazzmaster that came from the custom shop lol. But I love it just the same. I appreciate that info! The trem performs decent and holds the tuning but I also...

    Fender Jaguar / Squier Hybrid (we are the mods!)

    I have a really bad habit of monkeying with everything on guitars - changing pickups, knobs, bridges etc that don’t necessarily need it, but I’m a tinkerer. My grandma used to tell everyone how as a little kid I’d take the house tv, toasters, microwaves apart and never put it back together just...

    Gibson Les Paul Special Tribute DC

    I believe that’s what we are going with is the nitro spray. As an old punk rock guy I like loud looking stuff - and having the same color as everyone else just won’t do. It is rad on its own… but when something strikes me as pretty I want to own it. Finally got it semi- put together - digging...
