    Boutique pickup/guitar comparo

    I wasn't too much a fan of the lead tones on any of them, just a different tone than I personally like for lead, but I LOVED the rhythm tone of the H140 with the Throbaks! Thanks for making the recordings!

    DB II and a 535

    I'm a huge Doyle II fan, but making me listen to EC's nails on a chalkboard tone is just too much for me to take. I saw him a few times with the Arc Angels and Doyle II always killed it with strat tone into vintage Marshall tone that was far better than what I'm hearing here. Although his Heritage sounds way better than Clapton's strat. I think he dumbs it down playing with Clapton. Probably doesn't want to show up the boss.

    A 535 3 PIECE

    I like the black tinted super glue trick and the accelerator he keeps on hand in the airbrush!

    A test of PATIENCE! Rewiring the H535.

    because no-one wants to see that big hunk of plastic on the back once the pickups are in:) Gibson did it on some cheaper ES335 studio models.

    Forget the string, use small gauge plastic tubing, it doesn't twist up when feeding through the holes. I have done more of these that I care to count and I can tell you it is light years better than string. Here's TV Jones doing a Gretsch but the idea is still the same...

    Time to start a flame war!

    No flame on my "Home Tone" Les Paul, which is my Goldtop '57 reissue I love SLE 101s in every guitar I've ever heard them in. I remember when one of my best friends had a squealing problem with a bridge pickup in his Lester, which was an early SLE101. I fixed it for him by removing the cover and running a bead of silicone over the slug coil, then I clamped the cover and soldered it back in place. When I was done with the job, I plugged that Lester (2006 R9) into his ridiculously powered DR Z amp, and blasted some licks that could probably be heard in the next town over:) One of the best days ever!!!

    That Yoop is my favorite kind of flame, I call it squiggle flame, and it reminds me of Billy Gibbon's Pearly Gates... That's the kind of flame that's on my R0 but this is the best pic I have...

    Monster Top and Back H-575 Custom!!!!

    yeah but I would need to change the rings too and the 'buckers I like would cost over $400, and then the pots and caps while I'm in there, and then the endpin jack, then things get expensive:)
