Re: New guitar day plus questions

I like distressed as some of you know but with all the pretty binding, inlays and gold I don't think it would work. Just waiting on a scratchplate now and looking into pots and caps etc. So far just removed the cream guards and middle pickup. Looks 100% better already but that personal taste of cour...

I found a sg scratchplate on eBay without bridge holes and he sent me measurements and they look pretty close so might give that a shot. It can be returned if unsuitable so best to try first.

Re: New guitar day plus questions

It's definetly deeper than lacquer, looks like paint and wood also. It doesn't seem to move and if I push hard enough it closes up. I can do the glue trick myself but wanted to ask should I fill it then clamp it flat and leave for a while or juse leave as is to dry. Can buff the lacquer after myself...

JMP1 with 2x12 pa cab :D One g12h and one g12m both from 70's. Yes not much wood around the neck but suppose that's best it can be. Crack can't be seen where cavities are but it quite a crack. Doesn't seem to move but not really sure how you'd sort it. I will speak to my tech at some stage and get p...

Re: New guitar day plus questions

Hi, thanks for the replies and added info. After a quick read it could be around early 2000's and originally destined for a country with out open headstock copy right laws. The neck crack appears to be lacquer only but I might have it looked into as stated. I have given it a fair amount of pushing o...

Re: New guitar day plus questions

I haven't had time to try it yet through my proper amp to see how she sounds so can report later on sound. Just can't get on with middle pickups, for me it's always in the way lol.
