hello, first up: rockaudio. I purchased a spalted maple jazz body and just thought I'd give it a review. $85 shipped. neck pocket is 2 and 9/16 which is acceptable but won't fit my mighty mite 2 7/16 light. top is amazing so I think I'll buy an ebony warmoth? birdseye? pickups fit beautifully (seymour 1/4 lb). 3 piece mahog body. this was supposed to be a 'factory 2nd' but the pics speak for themselves. highly recommended. think i might try dying it orange, sanding, dying amber, then true oil? the flame is light and I'd like to bring it out but black dye might be too much. suggestions? craigslist find: 92' fugijen sr 890. dropped the stock actives. dimarzio model p and ultra jazz. wired up a 5 way rotary giving some interesting split combos, bartolini ntbt, pre bypass push/pull. sounds great but too much highs with 5ook pot and no tone control when bypassed. will wiring in a resistor/cap to tame. next up: wired up some fralins for my paul. highly don't recommend cts pots. at least not the ones i bought. $8 ea and massive fail as the shafts broke apart from base putting knobs back on. fixed em but... I usually use dimarzio or bourns - even alpha would be better. lasstly... neck dive on an sg. I put on a roller bridge to add a little weight. Considering buying ebony tuning machine knobs to loose some weight? (grovers). considering magnets or washers in control cavity to balance it out but I hate to make it heavy. all thoughts and suggestions welcome. recommended lighter tuning machine replacements? anywho, would love your thoughts!
