NGWeek 540P-TC Fire Alarm!!

Hey guys, just thought you might like this. Got it from a fellow Jemsiter.

1988 540 Power Triple Coil. Body is alder with a sound all it's own. The triple coil is HUGE in sound. Really opened my POD up.

This thing is bright and in awesome shape. All I did was take the tarnish off the trem and taped and steel wooled the frets lightly to smooth them out.

I have a SSH 540P coming too. Cant wait to hear how it sounds.

Jeff

Re: NGWeek 540P-TC Fire Alarm!!

welcome to the very small club
and for those curious to know what the triple-coil is, check this:



i didn't know until i got mine. i thought it was a humbucker with 3 coils
DiMarzio and others should get rid of that awful Fender style single-coils and start making them like half-humbuckers (brass straight plate, allen-headed polepieces etc), like the one pictured above.

ps: btw, it's FIVE alarm red

I was waiting for someone to say that

Nice guitar, though - the 80s is strong with this one.
