its taken me over a year to actually buy all the parts; it wasnt a top priotity...but, now im almost done, basically i swapped all the hardware out for gold/solid brass schaller and gotoh parts that i bought from stewmac.com. and i replaced the pickups with surprisingly excellent pickups from guitarfetish.com...i highly suggest giving their pickups a try(im saying this after only trying out 2 models)
gotoh tuners, the same model that is found on most prestige's...theyre a lot better than the stock ones
...oh and i do plan on getting a replacement truss rod cover in white, and im currently working on a blank nut in white.
the neck pickup is a dream 180, and the bridge is a hot rails. the bridge pickup is hot, really hot, harmonics/squelies/ pinch harmonics/etc, are brutal on this,
the neck pickup is real twangy, almost sounds like a tele, except its 'hotter' only basing that off of my friends tele with the aftermarket fender pups...either way, this pickup sounds so creamy and chimey, it sounds nice even on high gain, though i prefer its single note capabilities over its chords, and palm muting on this pickup sounds kinda muddy, but ok...
i like that i can go from brutal metal tones to bluesy clean/overdriven stuff.
this pic is a pretty good representation of the color, in the other pics the color is a bit washed out...wonder what site that is?
what do you all think?
oh and i apologize, i just read over this and it sounds dumb, lol, ive been up all day and only finished setting this guitar up about an hour ago. ...im goin to sleep
