    I considered all of those options. Did not see any current bolt on Solar production in fixed bridge 7 so that’s why used. Also would have swapped out any Duncan Solar pickups. H3 is still a thru neck which I was trying to avoid and also would have swapped the Pegasus/sentient anyway. Could...

    I think at this point I’ll likely just go with the Ormsby GTI-S since it hits all marks and is priced under what a lot of other options are that don’t hit every mark.

    A custom build was not a consideration for a workhorse guitar.

    for a full custom I’d think well over $2k USD. Looking for a workhorse guitar not really a12 month custom build.

    I played a new Legator N7 next to a Keisel and liked the Legator much better in terms of quality.

    Good to know. Hopefully, the shop will be game to do it and it won't be too much so it opens up some options. I haven't found any other options as of yet that are really standing out but glad to know just getting luminlay installed is apparently a pretty simple process. Just looked into the...

    If it's around that price, that's really not bad at all. My thought was that removing and drilling into a neck would just require a setup from being drilled into/removed from the guitar for that period. I've never tried to install these so it's not a process I'm super familiar with having done...

    Hey sorry, link wasn't appearing when I looked on my phone. And you are correct, I didn't mention SS frets but that is ideal which I forgot to mention. Nt concerned with resetting up a guitar neck. I'm just trying to see if there is a guitar that fits these specs and if so is it more cost...

    So you're saying you could remove the neck and drill in new inlays and likely not need to have the guitar re-setup afterward? Maybe bolt-on necks are more stable than I thought.

    Which model are you referencing? I know the KM7 Standard that is no longer around was about the price of the Ormsby but not sure if it had SS frets. I think by comparison I'd go with either the GTI or N7 over the KM7 higher level stuff since I'm not sure I'd want the KM fluence pickups and...

    It's something I'll look into tomorrow when the shop is open. Really the only option for this route would be to purchase something on the used market that also hits all the other specs that somehow is a killer deal compared to buying a guitar with preinstalled luminlay. Maybe I'm wrong about...

    I have not considered that option nor have I checked with my guitar tech I normally go to about the cost of an install. My thought is that it would likely be more expensive to have luminlay installed and the neck reset than swapping pickups and obviously a lot more time. So even something like...

    Correct. It’s much easier to find guitars that fit the bill without luminlay. That’s why I only have 3 models I’m considering as of now. And the Solar may not be as easy since I’d have to find a used one that’s not trashed.

    It is. Trying to consider options and really wondering if there is a model I’m missing? Not looking for anything outside of these parameters as I’m looking to have this one as more of a workhorse guitar less studio. My daily is a Schecter SLS Elite (Ash/26.5) but the neck thru is touchy in dry...

    6 string bridge humbucker decision - Passive

    I was looking at that exact one and one other set but I couldn’t find any sound samples anywhere or even a review. So you have any samples posted up anywhere?

    I’ll check it out. Any comparison is good to get an idea. Thanks.

    6 string bridge humbucker decision - Passive

    That’s a good point. I was just watching some videos on pickup magnet swaps. Didn’t realize it wasn’t super complicated. I’m mostly looking for clarity in the low end so a bit of compression and not overly high on the treble since the guitar is pretty bright. So balanced like a v5 but with...

    Never use the tremolo - am I the only one?

    I just picked up a tremol-no to block one of mine since I NEVER use it and it just annoys me how rough tuning stability is with mine and using it to record. Anybody else try one of these? Mine is in the mail so I don’t know if it will suck or not yet.

    6 string bridge humbucker decision - Passive

    I’m rebuilding a Carvin Bolt I’ve owned for years to gear it more towards what I’m writing and I’m trying to decide on the bridge pickup. I also have a mahogany body using a Dimarzio Titan so I don’t want to go with an identical tone. Here’s the specs on the Carvin: Alder Body Ebony Fretboard...
