I called the factory yesterday and talked to Tom, which is really cool btw. I had a few questions about the Arc Angel. I didn’t know that I was speaking with him until the end and I blurted out “you suck, your guitars are amazing and now I want all of them!” I felt stupid after but he seemed to take it how I meant it. My Cobra S is amazing.
Now I can’t decide between waiting for an Arc Angel, and Angel, or a Drop Top Shorty
It's worth noting that the HC series are covered version of the HF series, not the regular H series. The HF is more of a traditional tone versus the fuller more hifi like tone of the H series.Can compare the uncovered H3 and H3+ in a reverse of your plan
H3+ in the alder/maple Angel above, H3 in basswood ProAm
The + has more sizzle and is more compressed
H3 in the ProAm makes for a perfect 80s rock machine
A fair point. I made the assumption the ‘C’ was added for a covered version.It's worth noting that the HC series are covered version of the HF series, not the regular H series. The HF is more of a traditional tone versus the fuller more hifi like tone of the H series. So the HC3 is a covered HF3, and doesn't sound at all like the H3.
Is anyone here one of the lucky owners of the examples made through the years by TAG in homage to George Harrison's "Rocky" Strat? After seeing one on his site years ago, to this day I can't get that out of my brain cell, esp. since all of the other versions of "Rocky" I've ever seen are...well...not at the level of a TAG, even before painting it up.
Those assumptions are correct C is for covered. Only thing is it is a covered HF and not a covered H. The plus is always a little more sizzle of the same number. For my tastes I have not enjoyed any plus models and not been crazy about the minus modelsA fair point. I made the assumption the ‘C’ was added for a covered version.
As ‘+’ means more windings on the coil of the same pickup, the effect will be similar in any series.
Happy New (to me) Guitar Day to yours truly. 2011 Mongrel, had the exact neck specs I like (Even Taper/Low Rise), had to pick it up.
It has the older (?) 3-position VA boost switch, and I'm only familiar with the newer 2-way switch- can anyone enlighten me on how this one works?

When I was looking to order a TA Classic, dealers told me about 6 months from order to delivery. I just got lucky and found one for sale with the exact specs I wanted. Only problem with that was I planned on settling in and looking for a Cobra or possibly ordering one, when wouldn't you know it....
