You have some very nice fretboards there as well. Nice pattern on the 2027 especially
Keen eye there, Jim. It didn't photograph too well, but you're right; there's a lovely lighter streak running down the right side of the 2027's fretboard. I was very pleased about that when I got it. It's very textured-looking.
They all get 'the oil' to keep 'em nourished.
Actually, someone over on ss.org stained the most beautiful rosewood fretboard I've seen in ages. It was such a shame, it had a wonderful grain on it.
evolvedmb: The DS7 is a great p-up. I've not tried 1000's, but of all the bridges I've tried, that's my favourite. I've never tried a TZ7, and I've actually steered away from them because of the bad reputation they have. So many people can't be wrong.
I did consider putting a DS7 in the bridge of the 2027, but I think it might be a little too warm for that. Even the Evo7 sounds quite warm in the mahogany on the low notes. I noticed it just recently, that it gets a little muddy down there. I'm thinking of trying something like a D-Activator.
