  1. I picked the CS-336f off of Wildwood's website a few months ago.It is simple and elegant at the same time. Custom Shop got it right! I play through a Fender 65 Twin RI (I have a large music room). Tonewise I get everything that I want. Fit and finish is perfect. Playability is super! Guitar is very comfortable due to its smaller size and low weight (6.2 lbs).
  2. I can't remember where I got the idea that the standard JA was a semi but jefrobie will tell us when he posts again.
  3. Cool, when you come up for air post some pics!
  4. You mean the Johnny A Signature has roughly $1500 worth of bling on it?
  5. I think the biggest differences with Johnny A guitars are that one is a hollow body and one is a semi hollow body. They both come with a bigsby or stop tail. From sweetwater: Gibson Johnny A.

Standard Semi-hollowbody Electric Guitar with Mahogany Body, Top, and Neck, Rosewood Fingerboard, and Two Humbucking Pickups - Ginger It was all too confusing for me so I bought an es137 custom. Best bet is to be aware of which options you want and make sure that is what you get.
  6. I don't know if there is a method other than to know where you started so you could get it back there if you didn't find that sweet spot. I have the same guitar but not the issue. Tone and volume controls work ok for me as well as the knobs on my amp.I was thinking (oops) that the poles my be too close to the strings (or some of them) making it too hot. Each guitar is different and so are guitar players. Have you been able to demonstrate this to other people? Maybe take it to your local guitar shop and or talk to them. They may have a solution other than changing pickups. Maybe the pickups are bad or something and need to be spanked :-)
  7. Have you tried adjusting the pole pieces on the 498t? Screw them down and you have a less hot sound, turn them up and they get hotter. The design is for loud rock and roll. Might try playing around with it. Don't turn them to far either way (low-output will be too low, High and your strings will buzz. Just a thought...
