Re: NGD: Blue Fender Toronado GT

[quote It's definitely a heavier Fender guitar with that Mahogany body. Interesting, so it's the same thickness as a standard Fender, like a Strat? I have a project planned with a mahogany body as well, but I planned to make it thinner than usual to offset the weight difference. How much heavier, w...

Re: NGD: Blue Fender Toronado GT

Toronado update: I tore the guitar apart, cleaned the body, polished the fretboard/frets and strung it up with .11s. http://live.staticflickr.com/65535/52531061895_aff368b03f_c.jpg I opened up the nut so the .11s would fit properly, but I was having awful buzzing on the 1st fret and frets 8 -10ish o...

Re: NGD: Blue Fender Toronado GT

Can anyone tell me about these tuners? Are these locking tuners? I have never used these before. I got confronted with similar ones now that I recently bought a '88 Strat Plus Deluxe. Basically, when changing strings, loosen that wheely at the back - it clamps the string above in place. Insert stin...

Re: NGD: Blue Fender Toronado GT

Humbucker question: What gauge strings do you run on your humbucker guitars? I normally run .11s on everything from Mustangs to Jazzmasters. How does a thicker string affect the tone of a humbucker? I am not sure what is currently on the guitar though it's probably .10s. It fells a little loose comp...

NGD: Blue Fender Toronado GT

I landed a cool guitar today but what was is cooler is the story how I acquired it. My dad passed away two weeks ago and as you would expect it has been tough. I started back to work this week and just trying to get back to some kind of normal. Today, I just needed to get out of the house and guitar...

I didn't try it. I used to own a PRS McCarty standard for a while but I sold it and immediately purchased my Fender AVRI Jaguar.

Re: Opinions on Fender Toronado GT

the GT is the only other toronado model i've seen that i've liked other than the american special series. i'm a bit contrarian to the consensus thought that the version original release with the strat tail piece is superior. the issue for me isn't the bridge (though i do not mind at all the hard ta...

Opinions on Fender Toronado GT

There is a Fender Toronado GT at the local Guitar store. I have played it the last two times I have been there and find myself wanting to take it home. I have never found a Humbucking guitar that I liked but the Seymour Duncan pickups sound really good. The bridge pickup can be switched in single co...

Re: Incoming - 1980s E serial Jag

That's amazing that you could keep the original color and still remove the top layer.

Phenomenal.

New Guitar Straps Day

Since picking up my new Squier Mustang, I knew it was time to some new straps. I grabbed two new guitar straps from Couch Guitar Straps in California. They specialize in reusing materials to make guitar straps, camera straps, etc. They have lots of cool designs and styles. I had one of their straps ...

Re: NGD: Squier Classic Vibe Mustang

I have been working on getting this Mustang fine tuned. The bridge was too high so I lowered it initially to the same height as my Vintage Mustang. I realized that since the Squier has a flatter 9.5" fretboard radius, that I would need to drop it lower to accommodate that. The action is nice an...

Fender Custom Shop Toronado Guitar

I spotted this guitar on IG the other day. A Fender Custom Shop Toronado with a Jaguar Tremolo and WRHB pickups. Looks really sharp. I assume it's still 24.75" scale but not sure. I totally want one. http://live.staticflickr.com/65535/52211331447_662b3cdb81_c.jpg http://live.staticflickr.com/65...

Re: NGD

I always liked the White Classic Player HHs.

I know the Vintera ones are basically the same guitar, but I loved this guitar.

It's on my list for sure.
