  1. Is it a good guitar? Worth buying?
  2. Frets On The Net https://www.fretsonthenet.com/Engraving/customengraving.htm Dave can make about anything you need and many selections to choose from. I recommend them highly
  3. The best way to describe the contact with this neck is, it grabs your hand as you play it, not letting you leave until you have been convinced of its being. You will find yourself either in love or running for the door. That simple. I never thought I would like it, but I'll be damm if it didn't just whip me instantly. Then I had to go all out and add new wiring, bridge, staple pickup and stuff. It truly will take you.
  4. I haven't come around here in a while, so I missed this thread It's been about a year since a few changes took place in my '55 land: I was told waffleback tuners wouldn't work out on the guitar due to the size of the headstock.. simply not true I see. Thorn GT-90 with Gold staples Bourn's pots/OD caps ABR-1 / and conversion posts New Switch (oops, wrong color) Truss Rod Cover Jack/Jack plate I really didn't do much else but a good set-up but Yours looks The Deal. Very nicely done of course I had a bit of inspiration: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PXiMSnSUeY0&a
  5. Pretty close! New pickguard and bracket, Witch Hat knobs for metric guitar, Switchcraft mini toggle w/tip Plain TRC, Gotoh bridge, Yellowjackets, output jack. It plays so good, It's just a special guitar and needed a tiny bit of effort shown to it besides just a good set-up and strap with strap loc's. I had ordered an ABR-1 conversion bridge and posts from Phila. Luthier Tools but it came out too loose, didn't fit snug, so I went with the Gotoh.
  6. Finally got around to getting some mods/updates done to one of my favorites. Can you spot the changes?
  7. The picture either has a strange reflection on it or is stamped a 2nd/used
  8. I'm doing the same with my ES 335 Pro had to order the pickguard off Reverb from a seller that makes a 5 ply version specific for the current Epiphone 335 Pro, I ordered it without the hole drilled for the bracket because I want to glue the bracket on. I had ordered a Bosco 335 style pg but it doesn't fit, is 3 ply, and looks cheap
  9. Depends on the need I suppose.. for a heavy band playing Paranoid, like my situation, needed the over the top, Treble..crispy feeling. On the Other Hand, Songs like the solo's in Sweet Child O' Mine I see the toggle switch go UP and that solo played in the Rhythm position. My style of playing has changed somewhat, but for the longest time I kept my switch on Treble
  10. Could this be the one? https://www.ebay.com/itm/Vibramate-Custom-Made-Cover-Nameplate-for-V7-335-Guitar-Adapter-PG-0819-023/323449066423?hash=item4b4f1113b7:g:R2kAAOSwH4NZiTly
  11. The 498T will add the Punch to a solo, and boosts well 'over the top' of the mix, when needed. Rolls off nicely. The 490T, even though very warm for rhythm, doesn't have the 'Punch' required for the stand out solo. Kind of the difference between a Duncan JB and an SH-6. SH-6 is a hot pickup JB is not quite as hot, but well balanced and darn good sounding. I added a 498T to my 2010 SG Faded to match the output of my SG standard. SG faded came stock with the 490t, but no matter how much I tried it just didn't have the 'Super Distortion' sound I was after, without being a
  12. Came out better than expected!
  13. There's bound to be some new, tiny problem with the release of something most people -such as myself- had never even heard of. ..but dang if it doesn't sound like the coolest option
  14. I have a 2015 model that was delivered with Grover tuners on it on sale for under 1k, new. I was understanding it was originally a Tronical tuner model but this guitar came to me well set-up, had a bench picture, all it needed was new strings. Plays like a dream. Really good, thick sound that plays well in about any situation. A heavy guitar, well balanced, great tone. It may be a different bag for me so I'm good with all of it.
  15. I had a Dimarzio Super Distortion along with an SH-2 in the neck in a 2007 Epi Les Paul not a common pair but it worked great Epiphones at the time needed about as much doctoring as you could give them.
