This pickup got pulled from the same guitar as I pulled a gold covered Bill Lawrence HB-R
Does this look like a Gibson pickup?
The thing that confuses me is the lack of the "Gibson" engraving on the bottom, in combination with it being waxpotted.
Soldering looks untouched? (Not sure)
I bought a nice looking guitar on ebay a while ago, it should arrive here next week. Got a good deal on it! Here is why:
It looks like someone used a spraycan of black paint to spray something, and forgot there was a guitar in the room. The guitar is covered in small splatters of black paint...
I'm getting rid of the EMG's in one of my Gibsons.
I know EMG uses 25k pots so I need new pots.
Long time ago I installed EMG's in a different guitar, I remember there was an output-jack aswell.
Do I need a new output jack now for passive again?
Do I need a new switch?
My quest: Find a stratocaster that is as good, or better than my Fender Custom Shop strat, for less than halve the price.
Contender 1: Fender Highway One strat 2006.
Contender 2: Greco stratocaster from Japan.
The Greco stratocaster:
This surely is a gamble because I bought it online...
Sorry if this is the wrong forum but need an answer by end of today and thought this subforum is more active than the Fender subforum.
I've been offered some 1968 fender pickups for what I think is a steal. Can anyone authenticate them, suggest a ballpark value and wether to pull the trigger or...
I have an SG with just the wrap-around stopbar.
I'm considering adding some kind of tremolo / vibrola.
My preference goes to one of the meastro vibrolas. Or maybe some sort of tailpiece that doesn't require extra drilling.
In any case the wrap around needs to be replaced with some...
Hello all you handy folks.
I have this nice stratocaster with ye olde 7,25 radius and vintage frets.
The frets are nearing the end of their lives.
I bet you see where I'm going with this?
The real question is, any of you good with maths? I'm wondering how much wood is sanded away (in mm). Lets...
Anyone seen em?
I was checking my spam folder because I missed an email someone said they send me.
Spam folder is also where the countless emails my local music venue sends me go.
To my suprise I see Phil X & The Drills as the title of one of my spam mails.
Gonna check them out for sure, but...
I aquired one of the most unlikely guitars Gibson ever produced:
Yep, that's an Gibson ES-335 with EMG pickups.
Some of you might already know of this model's existence, called "Showcase Edition". There's also Les Paul's, Sg's (and maybe more?) of this model. The LP's and SG's are...
Helle wiring gurus, I have a quick question. Either my switch is broken or my wiring is faulty
Switch neck: Peck pickup active
Switch middle: Both pickups
Switch bridge: both pickups active
How do I differentiate between broken switch or faulty wiring?
It's a guitar with 2...
The 490R in the neck position of my Les Paul is just not cutting it. I quite like the 498T, ideally I keep it in the bridge, and replace just the 490R with something brighter or less muddy. My concern is that putting a brighter pickup in the neck is gonna sound too similar to the bridge...
Just something I was wondering about. And im curious if any of the mods, or Alex, have given this any thought yet..... :
I think the new vendor subforums give a vendor way more "front page exposure" than just having a thread in the classiefied section. Vendors won't want to stay behind right...
