    Today I took this SX out for a quick drive. I bought this cheap guitar at Rondo Music a long time ago and did some modifications to it, to see how far can you really push the tone in a really cheap guitar😅. Tone was not the problem, the fret work was so bad that it was cutting my left hand every time I went up and down the neck😭. I fixed the issue myself and now it does great for practice sessions and some fun! Did you practice today? What guitar did you used?🎸🎸 #cheapguitars #guitarpractice #guitarmods #alderbodyguitars #seymourduncanpickups #guitardiyjob

    The jazzmaster pickup sounded killer, but was a little too noisy. So  here we are full on SG Custom. Currently wired with two 3 way switches to get all seven pickup combinations... unfortunately they're mostly weird out-of-phase sounds that I don't dig :'( Later this week I'll wire it up like a traditional Custom/Black Beauty, then I'll be able to get all my fave Sabbath/Crimson/Hendrix/Holdsworth tones out of my girl!

    If you’re into neat contraptions or the 18V mod for active pickups, then this little beast is right up your alley. It’s based on the 18V mod (Google explains it better than I do lol), but instead of routing out a space or tucking it into an existing orifice in your axe, you can just pop it into your 9V space. More volts (as I understand) allow more headroom for the EMGs to function adding clarity when running cleans. Even though 9V works well,  this 24V works better since EMGs are can handle up to 27V.  It definitely feels more responsive while playing. Also, this mod has cured my GAS for at least a few weeks😂☺️ Now, back to your regularly scheduled scrolling, y’all. 🤘🏽😝🤘🏽 #24VoltMod

    Refinished the top and the back. May as well do the sides too. 1980s parlor redo.

    My faithful @fender elite HSS strat is on the bench today for some major surgery. Replacing a broken shawbucker pickup with a @dimarzioinc air norton. This may take a while!!! 😀

    Dropped in a pair of @seymourduncanpickups Antiquity I’s in the Jazzmaster. The stock pickups were unreasonably bright and these have tamed the high end nicely. The guitar is still quite bright, so I may end up swapping out the pots for a lower value.

    “So, come up to the lab and see what’s on the slab!” Finally got all the parts together for this latest mod project. This time I went for a minimalistic approach with a single pickup and volume knob. Turned out great! Plus, it worked perfectly fine when I plugged it in. Didn’t have to do any resoldering! We’ll see what kind of tunes it inspires!

    This is my heavily modified Squier Standard Stratocaster. It's gone through many changes to finally end up where it is now.

The mods: (headstock down)
Jin-ho locking tuners
Roller string guides
Graphtech nut
Strap locks
Dragonfire Crusader pickup set
Push-pull volume knob (coil split)
7-way selector switch system
Switchcraft output jack
DIY noiseless trem springs

The black on the headstock is a vinyl decal that matches the body color.

I've tried to sell it twice before and have decided to keep it after this latest string of mods, it made a huge difference overall in my decision to do so.

    Harley Benton 7 String Progressive 
Karol sent out an SOS regarding his 7 string that he’d just refinished.  Yes, the airbrushed ‘Paradise Lost’ artwork on this guitar was done by him.  The detail is incredible!  Check out his page https://www.facebook.com/GrimAirbrush/

That aside, the electronics on this were a right mess and he’d conceded that his soldering skills were not quite as finely tuned as his airbrushing.

I had to dismantle the bridge pickup completely as it was reading a dead short to ground on my multimeter.  With the backing plate removed I could see the problem so I corrected it and rebuilt the pickup.  It was now reading 13KOhms - happy days.

The 3 way blade selector switch in the middle position was only allowing the bridge pickup to give any output, and looking at the switch, it looked as if some terminals were bent and broken.  I ordered and soldered in a new switch, which has taken care of that problem.

After that it was on with the setup and a clean up. 
All sorted now and setup in drop A tuning 🤘
