  1. I have a set of hand wound PAFS and two assemblies on order once they arrive I will order my Lollars Firebirds. I think all will be done in about 6 weeks. Obviously will post when all done and get some sound files up. I have found a couple of guitars very close to the Epiphone Zephyr I am currently looking for a Samick Washburn J6 Washington which is the closest thing I can find available to a Zephyr 311TN. Being a full hollow, 17" lower bout, thinline, they have a lot of features in common. Scouring the Swedish E-Bay Blocket for one. I wish I lived in the states this one is one CL
  2. For comparison my neck route 1987 E-by-G my bridge route 1987 E-by-G you can see the access for wiring... It is interesting your 1988 E-by-G is just like my 1989 Sheraton (which does not have the E-by-G headstock) my neck route 1989 NON E-by-G Sheraton my bridge route 1989 NON E-by-G Sheraton My E-by-G is January 87 (so they changed the design somewhere between these dates) Your E-by-G is August 88 the internal design of yours is closer to my 1989 NON E-by-G model Toredown's is February 88 it will be interesting to see if his is like
  3. And they are long enough with no problems' date=' if so then no problem...
  4. Ask the supplier of your Riviera what are the recommended strings many people on this site have Rivieras they will probably give you their preferences. Ths Gibson L5's were suggested to me by Brian when I was thinking of putting a freq' on one of my sherri's i have gone off the idea for the moment.... http://www.stringsandbeyond.com/gil5puniwoja.html
  5. Hi Gypsy lots on this if you do a search save covering the same ground. Apparently some people find it difficult finding strings long enough for the bass side of the freq' Brian suggested Gibson L5 strings which are long enough but it is if the fit the sound you are looking for on your Riviera. Basically in a nutshell the freq' limits your options for strings and that is why people have done things like switching the shorter arm of the freq' to the treble side which defeats the purpose of having a freq' if the design is to have any credibility....

  7. I was doing a further little research today about mini humbuckers....... Seymour Duncan Antiquity II™ Mini-Humbucker: neck and bridge / 11014-11 & 12 pickups The blurb reads like this http://dev.seymourduncan.com/products/antiquity/specialized-2/1101411_12_anti/ I always liked this pickup. I'll never forget a guy named Glenn Schwartz who played in the early James Gang and Pacific Gas & Electric. He had an old Epiphone® Sheraton™ fitted with mini-humbuckers that got such a huge tone. With this pickup, I set out to capture that same tone. This pickup fits into the P-90 so
  8. Good work Toredown, I am sure you have read all the posts and it would be good if you could give us some cross reference on your guitar. How it plays, any modifications. What would be useful, if you ever have the pickups out for any reason to take photos of the neck and bridge routes so we can compare to earlier and later E-by-G's. Welcome

  10. slawek The guitar is yours do what you feel you need to do, but some very experienced guys on this forum would advise you against refinishing a guitar, unless it is done by a master Luthier, with the very best of equipment, paints lacquers, etc and ideal premises to carry out the work. Maybe you know a master Luthier. I wish I could just find a Luthier...... I am interested in what you said, about you think there is no bridge pickup cavity in your guitar. August 88. yours is the latest of the E-by-G's we have knowledge of, and it would be interesting to see what is insi
  11. Just for you slawek currently for sale in Gothenburg http://www.blocket.se/goteborg/Epiphone_supernova_union_jack__Noel_Gallagher_25907105.htm?ca=11&w=3 €904 But I would rather have my E-by-G, I was born in Liverpool England but I hate that flag..... Tobacco burst is much cooler....
  12. Beautiful slawek Looks in very nice condition for what you paid. Mine has a few chips and dings but nothing that off putting to me...yours otherwise looks identical to mine. The whole reason of having this thread, is to share notes, and do a little research on the Sheraton's of this E-by-G period. I am sure you have read all the posts on the thread but there are advantages of owning an E-by-G, cavity access if you want to change out the electrics, long tenon neck joint, etc... How does she play is the guitar all stock...?
