Re: NGD: Gibson ES-335

It’s a real stunner. Probably the only lefty in that colour too.

Have you decided if you’re going to get them to ship out the correct case or are you going to keep that one? Did it have the correct COA etc in there?

Re: NGD: Gibson ES-335

Cheers! It’s got the T-type pickups in it. They sound good, had read that some people found them overly bright but that’s not what I’m hearing at all. Not too hot, but still quite pokey. Yeah I have the Memphis Historic Spec II in my one (2019), people say the same thing about those. This is the so...

Re: What’s your favourite baritone/extended scale guitar?

This. Tho Hagstrom do a baritone Viking that I’d love to try (I think it’s someone’s signature model, Paramore guy maybe).

Yeah the Fabre hardware and Lollar pickup is a nice addition too.

My inner miser still balks at paying a grand for a Junior tho.

Re: pictures of your shortscales

Really thinking about picking up a Bass VI, any good? This is the newer series one and feels much better made than the older one. I bought one of those when they were released. I’d looked at a load of them just to find one that didn’t have a QC problem. The newer one feels more like a quality instr...

Re: Arturia limited edition NOIR MINI/DRUMBRUTES

These are cool. I had a fair bit of love for the Drumbrute and the Mini/Micro but for some reason I found myself not playing them as often as other stuff. I’m the same with Korg. I think it’s just because they’re a bit too far away from my preferred synth sound. I sold mine a couple of years ago whe...

Re: Machine heads!

The higher the ratio the better. I have a few with locking tuners and I don’t think they make much difference most of the time. Tho less wraps = better tuning stability with trem use. Preowned tuners are a nightmare as they’ll often look essentially the same. Cheaper OEM Grovers like you’d get on ch...

Re: Decals and making 'em look good

The only real success I’ve had with a similar decal was by properly burying it in clear coat. It was on a partscaster I put together for one of my mates. It took a few of coats, the first one focusing around the decal to raise the level up at the edge of the decal a bit. Second and third coat to mel...

Re: pictures of your guitars here

These are super handy. I have a similar one that sits under my StringSwing rack. They’re OK. They are stuck together with the minimal amount of welds. They’re secure enough if you’re not moving it around.

Re: Toltec Jaguar Pickups

Loved the video. The pickups have the same sort of average sound (pretty much like the Jazzmaster ones). Not what I think of as very Jaguar like sound, tho probably a good all-rounder sound wise, possibly better for a lot of different applications.

More of a sidegrade than an upgrade.

Re: 2022 gear goals

I’d like to get a decent pedalboard put together, with a more carefully curated board than I’ve put together previously. I aim to continue to cut down guitars, replacing multiples with something a bit more special wherever possible. As far as stuff I’d like to acquire, maybe a ebony 355 or a LP Cust...

Re: pictures of your shortscales

The Player Jag has already been booted. I got it as a sweetener on a trade deal. I traded it for that Vintera Mustang cos I knew someone who was looking for one. I then traded that for an old Strat Plus Deluxe(sacrilege, I know).

Love the Fiesta Red. I’ve often been tempted to do a matching headstock on mine.

The black covers look really great matching with the switches.
