    Looking for Lazarus

    You never know - some going for that aged look with new parts, while the summer was so hot and humid here that mine aged all by itself (and I was trying to remove the haze.)

    Strings Covered In Rust

    The guitar was in a terrible flood years ago, and the tuners have seen better days - you may be onto something here.

    Strings Covered In Rust

    I live in NY. I wipe the guitar down every time I play. Strings are about 6 months old, but I've had strings on much longer without this happening. Odd, as my other guitars are all fine.

    Strings Covered In Rust

    I've not played my SG for a few months, and when I opened the case the strings were covered in rust.

    Lazarus Pickup Heights?

    What I meant was, using the tone control to roll off bass on the neck pickup, and roll off treble on the bridge means the sound I'm chasing is somewhere in-between. My SG doesn't seem as extreme in it's differences. (I am playing though a Beano, so this is also a factor.)

    Lazarus Pickup Heights?

    As it is now, I'm finding the neck too bassy, and the bridge too bright. This is causing me to use the tone control (for more treble on the neck, and more bass on the bridge), but this seems to be counterintuitive to me.
