DM-2 I borrowed (stole) this one from a venue we once played. It seemed it was collecting dust at the office of the fat drunk venue manager, probably forgotten by a band years ago, so I thought I woul ...

All Specials have two pickups (single pickup version is a Junior) and that is pretty blatantly an Iommi-themed model/cleverer purchase than any model that actually has his name on it.

pretty lineup there!

+1

The amps too. That whole room could be X-rated.

While Noirie's guitars are presumably ALREADY illegal here.

Mint guard is a result of natural aging of some protoplastic pickguard materials that were used on early strats as I understand it.

The '50s Strats had protoplastic, potted material like "bake ...

Mint guards only look good if everything else is mint too. This whole “cream covers and knobs with mint guard” thing that has started happening is wrong and looks bad.

That Jag is perfect, in a ...

I bought the nicer Stewmac files, 3 double sided ones that take care of all 6 nut slots; as you say they're not cheap. They do make it an easy job though.
The lighter weight type they sell might be w ...

I like the green one but I really really like the yellow one with the black stripe. It might be because these guitars themselves are so un-60s looking that a LOUDER finish kind of works better for me. ...

My new supersonic is 40mm at the nut. Jagstang neck does not feel that small. Like at all.

Too bad, it is. Proper vintage A width is 38.1mm, not 40. The JS actually measures out a hair narrower ...

1.625 is 1 5/8, the standard Fender nut width (designated B-width during the period in question). I imagine Warmoth call it vintage as a means to just evoke classic Fender spec, because plenty of peop ...

I only shell out for flats, just like the bumper sticker says.

Expensive bass strings are bullshit. I'm convinced, as with most things I don't understand, that it's just a front for Scientology.

What are the necks like on them?

The '67 Melody Maker has a proper fat Gibbo neck in the old-school fashion; boaty all the way up and down.
The '72 SG-II has a very typical Norlin-ish maple neck t ...

That’s not even the argument I’m disparaging, it’s a set-up related thing and has no effect on the sound.

You know using 13s without doing a set-up for them is how you broke the nut on your ...
