Super Fun Apex Mod Time!

In the continuing inability to leave stock models, well, stock...I decided to make some changes to the Apex.

I know what you mean... I liked it too, but I kept going to my Universes and stuff for other tones. I can switch back and forth though...I still have the old pickguard and electronics. I can just swap them as I feel like...

Re: Super Fun Apex Mod Time!

If they only sold 7string sustainers then that would be IT for me.

You had to route it for the neck and middle pups wright?

What Duncans are you using?

Just your average run-of-the-mill tobacco burst, alder-bodied, Duncan Custom Shop-loaded, custom-wired, shaved-neck Universe.

Re: Super Fun Apex Mod Time!

Looks great!
I interviewed Munky recently and we talked about this model. He's super mega proud of it. He also said he played a friend's mint PWH recently and is trying to buy it off him. He feels there's a special mojo about those early UVs that he misses, particularly in the necks. I wonder if that'll have an influence on future Apex models.
