i think its an air nortan in the neck and a steves special or a tone zone in the bridge

either way it sounds great! congrats with your new axe as well! they play like butter.....

Re: New Guitar Day!

Great looking guitar. The gold hardware really sets off the flametop.
Great find and I hope you enjoy it.

oh definitely... I can't wait for it to get it next week! I'll post pix after I give it a good setup and upgrades.

a TZ would have the pole/screw pieces like an Air Norton but to my understanding, SS's do not come with black pole pieces although I could be wrong...
Also, does the FM make it a bright sounding axe?

hmm i dont know i think ive seen them with black pole peices but then again i could be wrong i know its a dimarzio anyway, yes the maple on both sides of he body and the mahogany in the middle make it really bright sounding kinda a blusey jazz sounding tone with a clean channel then too a really nice doistortion tone to it when cranked up over all its a great axe but i do reccomend a pickup change.

Re: New Guitar Day!

oh and for the pickups id go with a steves special in the bride and a air nortan in the neck that seems to be a killer combo
