  1. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    I'm having a hard time finding a diagram for the set up I'm trying to do. I'm Wiring a Dimarzio Chopper for the neck and Crunch lab for the bridge to a 4 way switch with 2 volume and no tone. Here's what I'm trying to get. Position 1: bridge humbucker 2: bridge and neck humbucker...

    I'd been strat-less for a few months since getting rid of my EJ Strat, which I didn't really bond with and which was too much money into a guitar that's basically a utility player for me. However, some of the upcoming stuff I want to record needs strat sounds, so I went looking for a decent...

    SOLD PENDING FUNDS it pains me like crazy to get rid of this, but I guess you can't keep everything. Here is a USA Strat from 1981 It's in great shape - overall VG condition. No breaks, major dings, finish chips, buckle rash, etc. Not a boat anchor at 7 lbs 10 oz. Pickguard is not original...
  4. General Music Discussion
    This is not my favorite of his string of singles he's released but I really dig his guitar tone and different use of effects for it. It's more on the dark side. The more I listen to it, the more it grows. The groove is truth and the music video is a nice change of pace for him in terms of...

    Ok, so this isn't a very metal guitar, and perhaps I'll lose friends here if I confess that I'm going to sell my BC Rich Warlock to fund this, but I still think it's pretty cool. It's built in 1981, the last year of the "'70s" Stratocaster. This time is known for poor quality control and...

    Sup guys. My first post here. Gonna keep this short. Intermediate guitarist. I currently own nice Epi LP. Still love playing, just realized i'm not into LPs. Pickups aren't deal breaking, comfort/feel come first. These are the only two guitars i'm considering. Ibanez RG652MPBFX IBANEZ...

    NAMM 2018 video: Eric Johnson and Fender unveil first contoured Stratocaster Thinline | MusicRadar Schwing. If it's the Yngwie color though, I feel like it would be even better scalloped.

    Anyone know of any pink lined cases for strats? I have an American strat in olympic white with a maple board that would pop against some color. Any color really.

    I've been wanting this same guitar since I was 12 (I turned 32 yesterday). Needless to say that after 20 years of GASing for this it finally showed up at my door today. I've always been a fan of the CBS headstock as well as maple boards w/ white bodies. The Fender tweed case it came in is pretty...

    This is pretty cool. The #0001 Stratocaster |

    Saw this today on Guitar World. I'm a sucker for olympic white + maple Strats... and I dig the oversized reverse headstock. I assume this is a MIM model? They don't say in the description, and $900 for a MIM is kind of pushing it. I'll probably get one, fuck it. :shrug:

    So this just arrived yesterday, and what can I say? It's a very nice strat. Being the '59 vintage model it has the old style bridge/tuners and neck profile. I have to say the only thing I am not too crazy on is the pickup set, so I will swap those out for a BKP Apache bridge/Mother's Milk...

    Been wanting a really good Strat for a while now and I've only ever really owned YJM models in the past. As much as they are fantastic I wanted something different, a little more traditional. So this EJ popped-up at a pretty good price and in great condition so I just had to have it. I'd heard...
