doing my first parts caster. bought one of those new $130 kramer focus strats in teal blue. all the hardware/electronics are junk but thinking of it as $130 for a neck and body to just throw my own parts into I felt it was a good deal for me. Now I'm looking for a wiring diagram slightly...
HS or HSS? Your thoughts :)
I'm on the verge of Modding one of my EVH Striped guitars, it will be the B&W since originally has a Pickguard so if I can hide it later if I don't like or get fed up with the look. I was planning initially to make it a HH but with time I'm kinda diverting to go for...
This is a '90s Rickenbacker 360/12 in Midnight Blue with black trim. Sounds incredible, like a Rick should, with some compression and treble boost. I've done the hard work of setting it up with Elixirs (custom set pieced together from a 12-string set and a 9-46 set) and...
Ive been hankering to do a Strat build for a while and this popped up for sale for dirt cheap so no better time than now I guess.
It had obviously been sitting around for a while, the action was a mile high, and the saddle was starting to corrod. But other than that it's was in pretty good...
I started playing guitar on a Bullet Strat, like many others here I'm sure. It's probably been at least 20 years since I moved on from that thing, but the last few years I've wanted to get another Strat. I was kinda dragging my feet on actually picking one up cuz usually a new guitar purchase...
Guys a quick question.
Anyone played one of these?
If so, how is the Neck profile? Fat or more like a Fender Modern C? Medium or Jumbo Frets?
I saw one for sale and what got my attention was the Яeverse Headstock, being 24 frets its not bad as well, pitty the Rosewood fretboard but hey...
I can't seem to find any:scratch: I found the RG560 and RG760, basically just want that but with a pickguard & top route.
Open to other brand suggestions as well. Main requirements are strat/super-strat, HSS, pickguard. 24 frets would be preferred but not a deal breaker, neckthrough would...
Since im still GASing for a new Guitar and I managed to not buy on Impulse (yet), I settled down and decided I wanted something I dont have like a more Traditional Strat like guitar (except my Gio SHITBanez that I modded and Hangs on the wall), so the Specs that I nailed down are:
Picked this one up a few days ago! I have some plans for pickups to swap these out with, but whatever is in here doesn't sound half bad as it is!
It's dated 1987, so I've got the original trem, crazy thin neck and stupid low action that these are known for. I'm digging it!
I recently recorded rhythm guitar with EMG 60 in the bridge and it's just so much clearer than an EMG 81. I still like the 81 for lead work the most, but the 60 really brings out every note you play kinda like a good passive, but still is compressed in typical EMG fashion.
It sounds fine in...
If I can swing it, I'm going to spring for a Warmoth Tele hybrid this spring (bonus time!). I miss having a strat sound, but I don't miss having a strat shaped guitar at all :lol:
For the humbucker, I'm actually looking to sacrifice H tone for S tone. Basically, I want to be able to drop in a...
Been playing with my new Caparison and I love it, feels beautiful and sounds pretty awesome. However, I feel the pickups aren't quite right for me. It's got an Evo 2 in the bridge which I find a little dull and thuddy and the original alnico singles in the mid and neck which are a little shrill...
I've been thinking about giving this a shot, lately, after someone commented about how I was running 500k pots with true singlecoils on my Strat.
Has anyone either done this themselves or tried a guitar wired up like this? How much of a difference does it make? It'd require new...
Hey guys - a few of you might know that I've switched from the sales side of things at GC, to working in guitar repair there. I was working on a customer's guitar this afternoon, and ran into this issue that I just can't diagnose.
It's a 2007 American Deluxe HSS Strat with the S1 switch. The...

I'm picking up an '09 American Standard HSS Strat from a co-worker who needs some cash. I got a great deal on it, so I'm going to do a p/u swap to turn this into a shred machine.
(then I guess I'll learn how to shread...)
Any recommendations for an HSS set? The only limitation is your...
Looking for a set of H-S-S or H-S pickups from either Dimarzio/EMG/SD for my soloist.
I'd prefer them to be mid-to-high gain pickups and for atleast the single in the neck to be hum cancelling. Bridge needs to be f-spaced and have taps in the legs for pickup mounting.
