Guitar-fi anyone? - Page 23

post #331 of 626
I've got a Gibson SG Diablo and a custom feder relic by Rittenhouse Guitars all played through a fender Hot Rod Deluxe.

On the acoustic from I've got a Guild and a Yamaha.

What, specifically, was repaired about the neck?

Looks like there was a nice big crack in it towards the headstock. Now there's a lighter colored piece of wood there. The nut was also replaced, though it isn't locking thankfully.

I'll have to do that some time soon. Maybe I can find an old MIM Strat for cheap to get a good quality neck and body and throw in the pickups I want and eventually get around to refinishing it.

You can probably get a replacment neck on ebay for not too much, I know people are parting out jacksons all the time on there.

Pics?

If it is a crack in just the headstock I wouldn't be too worried but if it is elsewhere that is not good.

The replacement nut isn't really a big deal. If it was replaced, it is probably better than the one that came stock on the guitar, provided the new one was installed and adjusted correctly.

Here's the one picture I was sent of the neck damage. The rest were of the guitar in general. Otherwise, it looks fairly nice, though he has no clue as to what is original in it or not. He says he thinks the pick guard was replaced and doesn't know about the pickups, just that they "sound nice."

Anyone here a fan of single coils? And if so, any special single coil strat pickups for recommendation? I want something else than the customs, and sure dont want the texas specials.

I've been looking @ Fralin blues special pickups, anyone try fralins?

If it was repaired professionally I bet it's pretty solid.

I've only heard great things about Fralins but I have never played them. I love the sound of single coils very much.

This thread needs more pictures: here's my current rig.

Here's my stuff. Sorry for the cell phone pic. Uke and acoustic guitar are in their cases. Pedalboard has Korg Pitchblack, Boss CS-3, BYOC Overdrive2, BYOC Large Beaver, Boss CH-1, EHX Holy Grail. Amp is Valve Junior (stock), red box on top is Weber MiniMass. The Cube is my girlfriend's.
post #343 of 626
How does the minimass work with the valve junior? I'm eyeing one, get some tube overdrive at levels that the neighbors dont complain about.
post #344 of 626
It works really well. I can get away with playing my guitar with the volume on the head at 10-11 o'clock (which is my preferred setting) with the volume on the MiniMass set to nearly the lowest volume. I'm not sure how whiny your neighbors are but I don't think I bother anyone. However, the corner with the amp is located at the corner of the building so it's not like there's anyone right there except for maybe if someone's in the room directly above. I hope that made sense.

Anyway, I recommend the MiniMass to get overdrive at very reasonable levels. There is no way (without getting evicted) I would be able to play in my apartment with the head at that level without the MiniMass.

I picked up a Jackson Falcon not too long ago, it's a pretty killer axe but wow, the neck is a lot thinner than on my ESPs. It's the precursor to the Caparison Horus not sure if you are are familiar with that or not. Here's it with my ESP Maverick after I did some pickup swapping. I'm going to be exchangin the Super 3 in the Maverick for a d-activator with dimarzio...
