Re: pictures of your shortscales

Oh good lord that's so hot. Perfect. Ha but why the Jag bridge?! ...and what happened to rod? Just gone? He had a killer collection IMO all the mods to this guitar are very pretty questionable and were done at a time when competition Mustangs weren’t quite as valuable as they are now. At least it w...

Re: pictures of your shortscales

God, the Prisonstang - my white whale. Didn't it originally belong to Rodvonbon (or how was that?)? Rodvonbon had it circa 2008, then Mezzio, then Shad. Been waiting until I get it fully sorted before making its own thread for it, but this is how it looks now - hopefully I haven't ruined the mojo :...

Re: Fender Goldfoils WHAT WHAT WHAAAAAAT

Getting more silvertone/harmony vibe from the JM. At this point I would rather buy a Harmony Silhouette. More interesting, probably lighter. At this point JMs May as we’ll be strats to me.

The Sunburst Jazz bass and Redburst Tele wear it best IMO.

Re: New guitar project

Do you know the weight?

Honestly for what it is, I like it how it is, I think the pearl is a nice compliment to the gold. Anodized might be too much of a good thing. But looks cool either way, definitely a conversation piece at the very least

Re: fuckin super sonic volume knobs

If both knobs on 10 does the toggle change the sound at all? I’d guess a bad switch, common failure point.

Re: pictures of your shortscales

Beautiful Mustangs. Is the worn one matching headstock gold or what? Really cool. Thanks- it’s a heavily worn in competition orange that supposedly spent the first 40 years of its life in the good behavior room of a prison. There’s still remnants of the red comp stripe on the side by the strap butt...

Re: pictures of your shortscales

That makes sense, the 1965 I played at Parkway Music that made me buy the 1966 was A-width. Same spec as mine but with the smaller headstock, oval buttons, plain neckplate etc. I went back to put it on hold and someone else had already done it an hour earlier. Now it's hard for me to imagine an even...

Are all the 70s Mustang necks B width?
Not sure but both my 1966 and 1969 are B width.

Re: New fender elemental series

I think the only thing I dislike is how cut and paste the pickguard is between all models in the line. And it isn’t a very interesting or aesthetically pleasing shape to begin with.

Re: Project: Player Jaguar in mahogany

This is going to be sweet- I wasn't going to start this thread until I ordered the neck, which I was waiting to do when the ORM sold, which still hasn't happened. I just figured why not, I ordered the white Duncan JB and it arrived today, so I'm now committed to making this build. it’s funny how buy...

Re: Ibanez RG760 Restomod

With the body close to as good as it can get without compromising the finish and body (it’s also the original finish on a guitar nearly as old as I am, I think it’s doing pretty good), I decided to screw in the pickups and neck….final mock up before wiring and setting up, which will probably happen ...
