  1. Believe it or not, a good luthier could reattach that headstock where you can barely tell. COuld you have them send it off to a well known reputable luthier, pay for it, and pay you extra for damages? I broke a headstock off before, and when my luthier Dale Steel got done with it I could barely tell. He claimed it was stronger than it was in the first place.
  2. I decided that you nice folks have answered enough questions from me. I just ordered the Surf 90s! I plan on just attaching them to the existing wiring first and going from there. I will come back and let you know how it turns out. Thanks!
  3. Do you know what Gibson uses with p90s on the Les Paul Junior Special? 330?
  4. Wonder which GFS pickups sound the most like the Gibby p94s. ALmost traded my Sheraton for a Tele today but couldn't. It plays so nice. Still sounds like butt ;)
  5. For those of you have changed over the hardware to chrome, what did it cost? I'm kinda strapped, but I want to see before I order gold pickups.
  6. Traditionally what is used on fenders and on gibsons with p90s? 250, 330, or 500k?
  7. Thanks for your accessment. Does it come stock with 250K pots?
  8. Thanks for the review! I'm getting close to ordering those. DId you just replace the pickups or the wiring/pots as well?
  9. I bought the Sheraton because I played a friend's, and while I didn't like the sound, I loved the feel. I planned on putting in pickups from the start. Just didn't know what.
  10. That's a great idea. I am assuming splitting the coils gives a single coil option? Would you do this with a push/pull knob added on each tone knob? Thanks, thats a good idea. If it works like you say, maybe I can have a lot more versatility. I really do love this guitar otherwise, so any idea to get the tone where I need it is great!
  11. Thanks for your input! Believe me, I have been in bands for 18 years now, and I used to sell guitars and set them up for a living. I have owned and heard far beyond the "thin" Fender sound. That just so happens to be what I like. I don't like humbuckers and never have.
  12. You're entitled to your opinion, but I have read countless threads about people changing pickups on guitars. I think your "simple" answer is rather "simpleton" in nature. Fact is, the guitar is perfect otherwise.
  13. Thanks, thats exactly right! Love the way it plays but the tone is underwhelming. I think it's easy to understand. And from what I gather, a fairly common criticism of this guitar. Cheers.
