    Trust and Greed....dealing with a vintage piece

    No dealer with half a brain is going to let someone who is not a known expert (sorry, but I am pretty sure the OP is not a vintage “expert”-Heritage Guitars, perhaps he’s more well-versed than most on those) take a guitar like that out of the shop. The piece of paper is a joke. Completely...

    thoughts on Firebirds

    LOVE Reverse Birds. Have a Historic FB1 and FB III. They hang fine if you use the strap button at the neck heel as opposed to the bass horn. Sound and play great-complete fretboard access and mine have big fat necks. Banjo tuners look cool, but the Steinbergers are MUCH better tuners-I have a...

    NGD-80s Schecter PT content

    Agreed that the new ones are not bad-much better than many of the later TX ones when things got dicey and the USA ones are quite good. Still, I have yet to play one that is the equal of the 84/85s I've had or have now. Considering the price of the new USA ones, I would pass though.

    To date it between84-86, if it's a VN neck, it should have a brand on the heel. If it's a TX before mid-1985, it should have dates and inspectors' names. The earlier TX stuff can be SO good.

    If yours is an 85, it's a late one when they started going to all-imported MIJ parts. The giveaway is the differently-shaped upper bass bout and the 22-fret neck. Ive owned three of the 84/85 early TX Schecters with 21 frets and two were among the most perfect guitars I've ever owned among...

    I just bought a custom shop holoflake Guild Bulesbird!

    I bought the OP's Holoflake Guild (actually traded an amp for it) and it immediately became my #1 gig and recording guitar for the next five years. An absolutely spectacular guitar that got tons of compliments both from sound and looks. To rise to the top of a stable of 45-50 high-end and...

    Any Vintage Ibanez Aficionados in the House? (NGD)

    Fantastic score-the set necks are rare indeed. As for production numbers, they are often low-I had a three-coil Iceman that was like one of 40 or so (I forget the number).

    Pulled the neck pickup out of my Tele, going Esquire

    Thanks. It's a great guitar. The conversion was mainly aesthetic, but I also wanted a kill switch.

    What is this "neck pickup" you refer to? Esquires are fantastic-very versatile like LP Jrs.

    '75 Fender Tele Custom Seth Lover question

    Yes-it will directly effect treble. If you're running 250k pots on the neck humbucker which usually has 1meg (more treble), it'll sound like mud.

    One pickup guitars, lets see them.

    The neck was an original Baker Inferno neck that had been made for a single-cut (Crucible?). The neck was one of several I bought from the auction of stuff that was in his shop when it was sold in 2003/4. The LP body was custom built and guitar was assembled by Murkat (former GCS) at NTL in...
