    G&L ASAT Special and Fender Amps

    I have several MFD equipped G&Ls, I've found that the higher output the MFD is the more likely it is that an amp may not like that guitar. Never played any of them through a Princeton or DR, I have a Blues Junior and all sound great though that amp, same goes for a Vox AC30CCII. I also have a...

    I use aperture priority on a cheap digital camera on a cheap tripod ( that's the key), using only available natural light. Some of my results

    Tele players, bridge pickup roll off

    If your pots are right handed, but wire left handed on a lefty guitar, then they will act more like on / off switches. i.e. your pots will have little effect from 10 down to 3 or 4, then all of the taper occurs from 2 down to 0, so it feels like an on / off switch, and is very difficult to use...

    Japanese Alembic Style Guitar-Anyone Know Who Made It?

    An EKO maybe ? They had some really oddball quirky guitars, and were fond of using a zero fret, plus they made copies of Japanese guitars. Here's an EKO listed on reverb .... https://reverb.com/item/13226783-eko-m-20-benchmark-thru-neck-electric-guitar-japan-1970s-80s-ibanez-bench-mark

    NGD: Lefty strat volume/tone knob question

    Yes. That's how most of mine are, they are right handed pots wired right handed but in a lefty guitar. The taper works as it should, but volume swells are not possible. Is your AV Strat stock or did someone mod it ?

    NGD: Lefty strat volume/tone knob question

    To be honest, I don't know. Lefty pots aren't just right handed pots wired in reverse, the on /off effect with no taper happens when a right handed pot is wired lefty. The taper is different on a true lefty pot. I've gotten so used to using "normal" righty pots that I can't use a guitar with...

    Show your SG

    My '97 SG Standard, stock with the high output pickups ( 480 / 490T ? ). I had a set of Seth Lovers ready to be used in this guitar when I bought it, but honestly the stock pickups sound excellent. The same pickups sounded terrible in my '90 LP Std. It has a fat neck and no neck dive. And...

    NGD: Lefty strat volume/tone knob question

    You need left handed pots that are wired left handed. It sounds like your new strat has right handed pots. I'm left handed and play left handed but I prefer to use right handed pots wired right handed, the opposite of lots of lefties, but the pots function properly with gradual taper of volume...

    What's your favourite solidbody P90 guitar ?

    Congrats, careful though, they're addictive ! Here's another Heritage solid body of mine with P90s ( Duncan P-Rails, cheating a bit). It's a 170, now discontinued I believe

    is there a recent "show your superstrat" thread somewhere?

    I had a Charvel 475 Deluxe, bought new in '89 or '90. It was the worst guitar I've ever had ( I had to order it sight unseen ). Put me off Charvels for a long time. The shop I got it from did take it back and gave me store credit, I then ordered the purple ESP S800 pictured above, waited 4...

    is there a recent "show your superstrat" thread somewhere?

    I found a lot of them online, Ebay, stores, forums etc. The market for lefty guitars has never been more abundant. There are lots of groups on facebook as well, a lot of guys selling the same guitars on many of them, but the days of seeing only a lefty MIM strat or Epi LP for sale are long...
