Good info to have, appreciate that man! Guitar looks awesome
And beware with tuner upgrades. I took off and measured the stock Charvel one and the 2 pins measured about 8mm to the post center. So ordered Schallers with the 8mm 2pin spacing. Well when I got them they DIDN'T fit. Considering the other option is 11.7mm, this is too close to confuse between 8 and 11.7. The Schallers were off by like 0.5mm, enough that they wouldn't draw in when tigthening the nut. So I decide to go with some Gotoh single screw ones and drill tiny holes to mount them. The Gotohs fit perfectly.
Finally getting around to finishing my Fusion HH project:
This is 4 coats of Tru Oil wetsanded with 400 grit. The body has been modified to properly fit a Gotoh trem (wood added to the left side of the trem cavity, covered by the veneer) and I'll be dropping in a set of ceramic Blackhawks. I haven't played this guitar in 3ish years so hopefully I can wrap everything up by mid May.
incredibly badass. How hard was it to get the veneer cut to size and glued on there? Always thought it might be a fun way to spruce (pun intended) up a otherwise basic instrument
It was fucking awful I highly recommend doing it the right way and buying a vacuum press. I used a couple hundred pounds of weights and sand to evenly distribute pressure and still got a bit of lifting after I trimmed the veneer down to size. Had to get a local luthier to fix everything.
I used a ton of veneer softener to get the veneer flat and flexible enough to bend around the forearm curve without cracking. I assume a vacuum press or bag would have prevented all the lifting issues I ended up having.
LOL I had a feeling it was quite the process. Came out great though!
this thing looks alive, like the book of the dead !!!
juste a little joke, no offense guys. Wish people in Tennesse bette times but i couldn't resist.
Jackson are just indestructible....
Damn! That's a hell of a picture. I was literally a mile away from where the Tornado touched down in Nashville, seeing Opeth at the Ryman - drove by or through at least all of these places. It's so insane how fast it came through and destroyed all that it did.
The place is a wreck, it’s really sad Thoughts are with them
I was watching the Weather Channel this morning and saw an EVH head and 2x12 cab where a house used to be. Both still standing up. Broke my heart.
Swapped back to some locking tuners. Gotoh Magnum locking in cosmo black. Matches the cosmo black Gotoh 510 perfectly.
Chrome, black, cosmo black...
I know this is normally an appreciation thread but I was browsing sweetwater and laughed when I saw the neck pickup. Not sure if it's the routing but it doesn't look like there is much room to try and correct the angle.
NGD... again... couldn’t help it!
Similar color but very different from my Charvel...
Jackson SL3, mahogany body, set maple neck with ebony fretboard, HSS (H is a TB-6 Distortion), Floyd Rose.
Couldn’t help it either
Had the trans black one, sold it because i thought i wasnt worth it but regretted it a lot. Like....a lot. The only one that did this to me.
Found a transwhite one last week, fair price, there was no hesitation. New one prices are just nuts. Like 5800 euros ? It was 3900 5 yrs ago....???
Previous owner replaced the Dimarzio by duncans but i’ll put the original ones back in. Still have a crush on the trans black one but the 3 colors are great so
Anyways. Still not worth it but f@« / it !
Just the best guitar ever. Forget Mayo, vigiers, blackat etc etc.
That looks sweets in trans white with the black accents.
I mean, definitely forget blackat.
