on the SD pups, what does rough cast mean? and is the Phaez 775.00 for the head and speakers? thanks, nice gear
Not at all. A4 is a very sweet magnet in this neck pickup. I HATE muddy neck pups, and this pup definitely pleased me in terms of clarity.
Armstrong P-51 head wrapped in red leather. - $1050 Shipped/Paypal'd in the contiguous US.
50 watts, powered by two KT77 (EL34) JJs and is loaded with three JJ gold pin ecc803s preamp tubes. Sounds absolutely incredible and is somewhat based off the trainwreck sounds and responsiveness. The ONLY reason Im getting rid of this amp is that I dont need anywhere near 50 watts and I an really use the funds to knock out some outstanding bills.
Phaez 18 watt Daisycutter - $700 Shipped/Paypal'd in the contiguous US.
INCREDIBLE amp and I know I'll kick myself for this one. Two JJ el84s and three Tung Sol gold pin ecc803s in the preamp. Completely point to point with torroidal transformer. Has an effects loop although I've never really used it. Cab was built by Bob at Sourmash and is top notch. Pictured at the far right with the white "Phaez" logo.
Warmoth Strat body - $475
Shipped/Paypal'd in the contiguous US.
Flamed Korina (black limba) with contoured heel and neck join. It has been finished in tobacco burst (poly) by Dave Mansel who does the finishing for McNaught Guitars. One small finish blem that can be repaired with super glue near the neck cavity (area actually covered by the over hang of the fretboard) The finish alone cost over $300 in addition to the cost of the body.*
I was building this up into a project with a 24 3/4" scale neck, but I've since realized I'm really quite content with paring down what I already do have. This is a great project - all you need to add is the neck to get her up and running!*

WB Six-Seven-Oh-Seven Strat pickups wound with wire from 1967. - $300 Shipped/Paypald in the contiguous US. These sold at around $550 new.*
Avatar 2x12 w/ Weber Pre-Rola Celestion Clones - $315 Shipped/Paypald in the contiguous US.
Wired 16 ohms (two 8 ohm speakers in series). Speakers have about 10 hours total playing time on them. I had these speakers made about a year and a half ago to ideally imitate a pre-Rola Celestion Greenback. They're exactly what I was looking for at the time. Very clear, yet not piercing highs, present mids, rounded lows. Interior of the cab is lined with acoustic foam.*
The addition of the foam made this cab sound MUCH better than before.*

10. Seymour Duncan '59 set in reverse zebra - $95 Shipped/Paypal'd in the contiguous US. *
Modded with rough cast A4 in the neck and rough cast unoriented A5 in the bridge. I'll include the original A5s as well. Fantastic sounding pickups, I just don't need them as I don't have a guitar to put them in.
11. POD XT Pro - $175 Shipped/Paypal'd in the contiguous US.
This POD is really great. I use it a fair amount with headphones for late night jamming. It has the Bass and FX Junkie packs installed as well.*
12. POD FBV Shortboard - $75 Shipped/Paypal'd in the contiguous US.
Great shape and lightly used. Works with a ton of Line 6 products and I'm 99% sure I have the original box.
