    I got my new American Deluxe QMT a week or so ago. I really dig it and the S1 system is pretty hip. I really like the ebony board. I dig the quilt and the wavy grain. Almost like having a flame and quilt in one guitar. The SCN pups are nice and lowered are very mellow which I dig. The DH-1 is...

    About 2 months ago I bought a loaded Clapton pickguard with the Active pickups off a fellow Harmony Central member (who I am told frequents Jemsite as well) that was out of his 1996 Torino Red USA Eric Clapton Signature Strat. I wasn't really sure what I was going to do with it, but I love the...

    I bought this the other day and it need a little bit of work. The Bridge was tarnished but after a little polish and eblow grease it shines very nice. Frets were in good shape but need a leveling so I did that (my first time) and a good job I must say so. A little Fret Doctor on the fingerboard...

    I found this one through local channels and have not been to check it out yet but the dude is asking $975 and hopefully will take less ;). Looks like something I might be interested in but would like more info. I have not had a chance to get more info from the dude yet but most likely will get...

    I have a Surf green (MIM) 1999 '57 Stratocaster. I love the feel, and the maple 'v' neck, and the tone is good...but the stock pickups make that "noise". I would like a good replacement set (all 3) for this guitar that keep the Strat-Fender tone but have more flexibility toward humbucker-like...

    Ok, while cleaning up in my oold bedroom at my parent's place while I was home over christmas, I found these in a box of miscellaneous guitar stuff I'd left there. I'd forgotten all about them - a set of three Fender American Standard singlecoils I pulled from my '97 USA Strat (of which I was...

    Ok you know the topic probably from the title.. 60 Cycle Hum.. My guitar is properly shielded, its properly grounded. But I have a 20" CRT Monitor right in front of me.. Is there a way to get rid of some of the background noise. I am using a Noise Gate already but its still very apparent in...

    Seeking advice from the strat cats here :D Since I got my Highway 1, I've been looking for some pickups that have a little more...character to them than the stock ones that are in there. I'm looking for a set that's versatile, as I'll be using this for blues, rock and when I want some...

    some people love to bash them here, but it's always good to have a strat in your collection. Let's see'em :) I would start it off, but i'm actually right in the middle of my project and I don't have any pics yet.

    hi guys, just wondering which single coil pu will give some bright strat sound without the noise?
  11. All Other Guitars (including Prestige)
    heya all! I am thinking about getting myself a strat to play around with, and I have heard that the mexican made ones are really nice. My question is, to those of you that have owned/played both types, which did you prefer and why? thanks in advance for your input =)
  12. Pickups & wiring
    So I'm torn between the Fender Samarium Cobalt noiseless pickups and the Fender Hot noiseless. I'm not sure which I'd like better. I've heard a great deal of good things about both. I want to retain the strat tone but I also want it to be noiseless and I'd like them to be loud. I'm not...

    Alright, being the Fender fan that I am, i got a bit "steamed" when I saw the bash thread, and my first instinct was to race in there and be the voice of opposition. Well, I decided not to disrespect Ibanez2005, and run in there negate his thread off the bat, lol. I'll just use this thread, and...
  14. Pickups & wiring
    Well the warmoth strat is well on its way, it would be done, but i can't seem to decide on some pickups. This guitar is going to be set up for a the best blend of blues/jazzy sound i can get. Its configured for a S-S-H. Here are some pics of my strat project, and my new carvin 7, and other...

    Wanted: I'm looking for a a pair of black covered single coils to go in my Soloist Pro. Specifically, I am looking for a pair of either Gold Lace Sensors or Bartolinis. I would love to get a matching pair of Bartolini V88's or 3XQs (one S, one N), but I'll consider anything Bartolini. The Lace...

    Hi-- Clearly I have not been getting out of the palace long enough to answer my own question... yet I have been reluctant to fork over my meager hourly wages in exchange for the world famous brand (made anywhere.) I assume the fancy, expensive, signature and anniversary models all have p/us...

    Finally after many years i got my first Fender Stratocaster. Never had one, never had the desire to have one, actually never had one in my hand. Always have been a metal kind of guy, and why would i wanna touch a strat? Now i am a couple years older, having some money left over and own some...
  19. Gear, Equipment, Recording & Off Topic
    Hi all, I have a G&L S-500. I don't particularly care for the stock pickups in it. I am considering replacing them with something that would get me a decent Blackmore tone or a SRV tone (not sure yet). I've heard Dimarzio Red Velvets sound awesome for rock (and can mix in blues for the...
