Re: NGD: 1968 Kustom K200 (and bonus Ibanez GAX30)

I never knew Kustom made guitars, I thought they only made amps. Aside from the weirdly placed strap button, it looks cool. A sort of weird child of Gretsch and Rickenbacker. Is the neck on that Gio on the thinner side? Gretsch plus Rickenbacker is a good way to put it, but with the neck profile of...

NGD: 1968 Kustom K200 (and bonus Ibanez GAX30)

the Ibanez was actually first… it was a $40 yardsale pickup, and to keep it cheap I just used spare parts I had in the bin to spruce it up- neck pickup is from some 70’s Harmony Les Paul and the bridge is from a Fender MIM. Speed knobs, GFS XGP 500k pots…just needed a better blade switch since all I...

Re: New Squier Paranormal Range

It was really nice quality, I liked everything about it aside from the weight (it was nearly 9 lbs) and the weird bridge plate situation (aesthetics). The pickups had a nice sound and the neck was comfortable for a XII. I only sold it because it was worth more than I had into it and couldn’t justify...

Re: New Squier Paranormal Range

I’m gonna be completely honest, these do nuthin’ for me. That was my feel with the last wave. Bought the cyclone out of FOMO and always regretted it. Really am missing a XII though, not in love with the color combos, but either could be improved with the right pickguard. And as it is I’d be waiting...

Re: New Squier Paranormal Range

I’ve been thinking about a XII since selling my Alternate Reality XII. Was hoping Squier would reissue the Venus XII when they made one, but this is nice too I guess. I like the rascal bass a lot, especially handsome in black, but I really don’t need another bass and don’t want to sell what ai have…...

Re: Josh Scott's pedal collection

I owned one briefly in 2007, I replaced it with a Nobels ODR-1, which at the time was on equal footing (about $40) to the Monkey on the used market. All the pedals in that Digitech series just looked goofy, who even cares how they sound?

I’m all for new comp stang colors. And I don’t even mind swapping some pickup covers. But these are all lame.

I want that green one with some medium blue stripes

Re: NGD: Squier Jazzmaster

The bridge has graphite saddles, and the bridge and vibrato are matte/hammered metal, but I feel kind of the same way about it…I’m probably more likely to refin the headstock off white to match the plastics once it warms up, or sand it natural, or it might continue to grow on me. Would definitely ke...

NGD: Squier Jazzmaster

technically a partscaster? Maybe? I didn’t post a thread in the projects section because there wasn’t much assembly required. I bought the neck at Love of Fuzz a while ago on the cheap. It’s a Contemporary JM neck with a 12” radius and thin satin finish. Then after I sold 4 guitars and a bass I figu...

Re: All your gear, ever.

I have rather long lists of have/sold. Kind of embarrassed about it as it shows a lot of money spent over the years chasing sounds (tonez!), indecision, and flakiness and I'm a hack to boot. I mainly played synths for most of my life and the list reflects that but I've primarily been screwing aroun...
