Hej folks! 🙂 I just got my hands on a beautiful Gothic IV T-Bird and the previous owner has de-gothic’ed it. Not massively but pickguard and original knobs were replaced and silver screws introduced. Now screws aren’t so bad to replace and there are certain knobs that look the same (tho I’d wish for the originals), but the worst is the pickguard. They’re nowhere to be found on the web and I doubt Gibson/Epiphone will have spare parts after years of it not being produced anymore. Only thing I can find is ppl replacing/modding their PG to NOT be gothic anymore. Anyone of those who disliked it has one lying around by chance? cheers, Line
My Strat had a blank boring chrome neckplate ... up until about 5 minutes ago. This new one is etched with its SN too. And for some quick slight of hand, I made the change without even de-tuning the strings. I made the swap and it was still in tune afterward! I saw this on eBay (the seller is "lazrart"). Super great quality, too. The guitar: '05 Mexican straight-up "Standard Stratocaster" -- modified with (awesome) Tex Mex pups, Graphtech saddles, later model Fender OEM heavier trem block, black knobs, pearloid pickguard/backplate, and tweed HSC. It has a fabulous neck with a rosewood board (pre-pau ferro ... nice!), great Strat tone, and tremendous sustain. But, I so much miss not having a 22nd fret.
