Re: Guild Surfliner project...need advice

Looks really nice, especially the guitar-amp combo! In my experience, what people tend to call unfinished neck on "budget guitars" is a regular, thick finish done with matte lacquer. It can sometimes reach like a couple of millimetres in thickness and people would still be calling them un...

Re: Guild Surfliner project...need advice

The neck arrived yesterday, although I’m not calling this quite finished yet - the necks on these maple models feel rough and unfinished…these are necks on supposed $500 guitars, tbh it feels rougher than the $150 Bullets or Sonic Series or whatever they’re called now. Wondering if someone had sande...

Re: Guild Surfliner project...need advice

Ended up “winning” a maple surfliner neck from eBay…got a few bucks cheaper than the other one posted here, and the truss rod is said to be working well. Few options and tbh I haven’t really had many guitars with maple fingerboard…maple on sherwoodish green is still a good look and I do kind of like...

Re: pictures of your guitars here

I’ve owned a Squier Bullet MIJ that dated to 1984 I think. Paid $200 and parted the poor thing….sold the loaded body on eBay for about what I paid and threw the neck on a newer Squier Standard Tele I sold to Dillon. Definitely a 2008 Nick thing to do :| I don’t think I’ve ever seen a Tele custom fro...

Re: Guild Surfliner project...need advice

Ah it didn’t occur to me it was a 23 fret neck- I was counting wrong and figured it just had the 22nd on the heel instead of on a fretboard overhang

My Ovation Tornado is actually 23 frets, but other than that I’ve never seen it anywhere else

Re: Guild Surfliner project...need advice

I saw that one on eBay - it looks like there may be a truss rod issue though. And all said and done I’d be in it for not much less than a used one goes for regularly- so if I must go that route I’d like to make sure it’s solid. I’d also prefer to find a rosewood neck from a deluxe. Slightly annoying...

Guild Surfliner project...need advice

Bought a Casio MIJ strat neck a while back from Love of Fuzz for $50. Have been hankering for a Guild Surfliner Deluxe in metallic green since they came out. Found a loaded body on eBay for a good price. Guild.png 25.5" body 25.5" neck. Fits the pocket like a glove. Looks fricken sweet, be...

Re: NBD - Squier Bronco Bass

Love the color combo - reminds me of that Silent Siren MIJ telecaster.

Re: Bridge, I would look for an older Bronco bass style, looked like a musicmaster bridge, a lot cooler than the squared off one and should bolt right on. Don't know why they ever changed it.

Re: Fender Tonemaster Pro

So this is a Tone Master Pro. I’ve been seeing talk about these but assumed it was a solid state pro reverb like the Deluxe Reverb and Twin.

And last I heard a Headrush was a (somewhat dated) Looper by Akai

Bridge is also clearly not Fender. Yikes.

Re: '99 Stratocaster pickup query

I’m not an expert but pretty sure only MIM standard and lower were using bar magnets on single coils. Doesn’t look right to me on a 99.

Edit: way back machine confirmed a USA standard strat back then would have “delta tone” system pickups, which were just Alnico 5’s
