  1. My 1961 SG RI. Just a KILLER guitar. A pleasure to play, goes from chiming bell-like, melodic tones to a face ripping snarling growl. I LOVE a set of good P90's and I really think these stock P90's are amazing
  2. Hi, I have one of the Epi 1961 SG reissues in Alpine white, and I absolutely love it. Flat out killer guitar, and the P90's in it can go from beautiful melodic tones to paint peeling roars. However, I think the wrap around tailpiece is a very weak link in the chain. I want to replace it but not sure what will fit it. Any suggestions would be very appreciated. The bridge in question: And some pr0n (who doesn't like pics of guitars, anyway ) Thanks in advance! Oh, I was looking at either this one: From Stewmac or this one:
  3. Just got an Epi Wildkat and LOVE IT! I had a Gretsch 5120 that I bought a Compton compensated bridge for and was wondering if I could fit one of those on the Wildkat, if anyone knows the stud post spacing, it'd be really appreciated. I can find out later tonight, I'm just at work and curious. Thanks!
  4. I'm on a semi-hunt for one of those vibrola's... I really wanted a FB with one, but it was way over my budget.
  5. I ended up swapping out the pups for a SM-1 in the neck and an SM-3 in the bridge, WOW, what a difference. I tend to like a more vintage tone and this nails it. Love this guitar. Absolutely love it.
  6. After a few months, I love it even more. It's almost gotten a 'broken in' feel to it, the neck feels faster, and it seems to REALLY like 11's with a wound 3rd. Still love it.
  7. I have to admit, going in, I was afraid the ceramic pickups would be too brittle sounding, too harsh, too high gain. I was worried for NO FREAKING REASON! Just ran it through some riffs, cleans, dirty, really, really dirty and it went from A-Z and back again without skipping a beat. One thing I didn't know, is that the tuners are in the reverse order of a Strat or Tele or other 6 in line tuners I'm trying to tune the low e, and fiddling with the high e tuner. Anyway, tuned it up, the intonation, the fretwork, the craftsmanship is everything I hoped for an more. It's a different beast
  8. I just got the AJ500ME, and had these put on it, but I prefer a heavier gauge string, and I love D'Addario EXL115W's for my electrics
  9. It needed some minor setup work out of the box, but most guitars need some tweaking, especially acoustics, imo. This has a solid spruce top, solid mahogany sides and back, mahogany neck and rosewood fretboard, open back grover tuners, bone nut and saddle. Had it setup with 13's to get a little deeper tone, and this baby has a serious voice to it. It's got the eSonic2 pre-amp system, I've plugged it into my SCXD on channel 16, and it sounds VERY nice. Onto the pics I did a cover of Kashmir using my Zoom H2 set to 2 channel, sometimes you can hear the guitar very clearly, other times
  10. I believe that there are some plastic parts in the MIC vs the MIA versions. And you're right, there's very little if any difference in price, at least with the B7's.
  11. Grrtwang... grtwang... Grrtwang... grtwang... grr/grr/grr/grr/grr/grr-grrtwang = Rolling Stones "Slave" intro, in my estimation.. Bwoooow.. bwow/bwow/b-b-wow - Led Zeppelin "Heartbreaker"
