already posted this guitar .. but I recently bought a new bridge and tuners for her and sorta wanted to show her off.. I hope ya dont mind.
I think she looks sexy in black and gold:D.. Ive always hated chrome so I finally decided to buy a bridge and some tuners.. chrome works on some guitars .. just not this one.. never liked gold either but it seems to work with the black
I know..i know.. Need to polish all the smudges off
Im probably in the minority here but I like the JT580lp.. So I searched and found one on ebay in like new condition..The tuners where brand new and are jackson direct replacements.. Admittedly.. Schaller M6 135's where my first choice for the tuners and the Schaller LockMeister was my first choice for tremolo..the tuners alone would of ended up costing me as much as the bridge and tuners I just bought.. shipping was fast.. ordered the 2 items from different sellers late tuesday and they where in my mailbox friday afternoon
Here she is with with a facelift
Once I intonated the bridge and got the bridge to settle the fuck down.. all was good..
for intonating purposes.. i used a strobe tuner program called TB Strobe tuner and for $4.90, it was easily worth it.. accurate and easy to use.. 1st choice was a peterson program but didnt have $60.. eventually Ill get a nice hand held strobe tuner but until then.. this program will do..
soon Im planing on rewiring her yet again as well.. thinking about wiring the middle pup up again but im keeping the 3 way slide switch.. Ill do it with a toggle and ill probably add a volume for the neck/middle.. I wont use a bypass mod on those pickups and just keep volume bypass mod for the humbucker
im also planing on replacing the front single coil,replacing the block on the tremolo and blocking the tremolo.. and suggestions on blocking a tremolo.. only want downward motion.. not upward.. i know of several way or items that can be bought.. just want to know what any of you would recommend..
after all of this.. the guitar will be to my FINISHEDDDD
