JS1000BTB Resurrection!

Hey guys check it out!

I took my entire guitar apart and applied a clear coat to my guitar to protect the signature and doodle from Joe Satriani, buffed it out and installed some new parts check it out!


installed the Seymour Duncan Blackouts and they sound killer. They sound like EMG's super clean and harmonics but they aren't compressed so they are really open, woody and organic sounding like a passive. Not to say it sounds vintage... but it doesn't sound as "sterile" as active pickups are usually made out to be. I had to back them down pretty far from the strings too because they are so freakin hot they'd overload their own pre-amp if you have them too close.

The tremol-no seems to be working great now too. I need to really give this guitar a really good setup job again on a side note so that might be my next project... who knows.


as an added bonus here's a bass I just bought last month that I didn't post pictures for yet either!


it's an Ibanez BTB 400 I picked up locally for only $250! and WOW what a deal. Plays beautifully and sounds awesome. Passive pickups with an active 18v EQ circuit. Has an extended scale length (34"?) and I love that because I HATE how flubby the low E string feels on a bass.
