  1. How about this. $59, no changes of any kind! http://www.freedomguitar.com/products_bowen_handle.php?UID=2009052318532524.250.228.183
  2. beatlenut- I gotta G400. It needs a neck reset, but it has the neck binding.
  3. On TDPRI someone's selling a pair for $160. PM me and I'll froward you the ad.
  4. Use a roller bridge, make sure you've got no sharp saddles or any place the strings touch sharp. Flatwounds are a bit more durable, but that could be attributed to guage difference as well. EQ your amp such that everything sounds good and feels natural at 7 vol/tone. Then turn it up to 10 on gig day. You'll not hit so hard, and it'll still sound right.
  5. I think these look amazing. I HIGHLY prefer individual vol/tone controls, however, and I think it could use a pickguard(maybe a SG-ized version of the LP style?). As mentioned before, neck binding. But overall, VERY COOL. I want something like this to be the dark fire SG. Same deep red and style as the DF, but this general concept.
  6. 2x5881 1x6v6 4xEL84 6x6550 etc. etc. etc.
  7. I'm thinking of doing a similar project, but with a P-90 melody maker, and a vintage vibe CC-rider. Complete with red refinish.
  8. Looks great! If you were set up, red tortoise binding would be the sex!
  9. I've got a VEH(bridge)/classic II(neck) combo. It's pretty awesome.
  10. Old silverface fender champions are pretty awesome, if they're in your budget, get one. Sound just like an overdriven bassman, only smaller.
