    This is an Ernie Ball Music Man Albert Lee HH that I sent to Marty Bell in Cali to get refinished. I think it looks amazing in person and really pops!!!!

    What about you?

    I've had a few others but haven't liked how big or heavy they were. These have spoiled me in that regard.

    MIM Duosonic: 22.5" scale. Pickups are a SD Quarter Pound on the bridge and a Carvin AP11 in the neck. The original pickups and pickguard were all but destroyed by the previous owner.

    Nope, they're his own pickups. "Silent p90" type that are Humbucker spacing. I swapped the bridge for a humbucker recently but think I'm going to switch back. Killer pickups that have a great time when they're both equipped too.

    I also really like your guitar!

    I'd LOVE to have this, but I bet it was more than I could afford.

    Really into those lately.

    I'm sorry to say, but some of these guitars aren't offsets. Offset refers to the waist of the guitar.

    Based off the last photo, top to bottom:

    2009 Thinskin
    1963 Jaguar
    2002 AVRI 62 with musikraft neck novak vintage in the neck and and JM90 in the bridge
    1965 Jazzmaster
    2007 Danocaster with Lollars and vintage trem unit

    All have mastery bridges (though not pictured with the Jaguar).

    I am very lucky to have these.

    Cool! Is that a thin skin? I love charcoal frost especially on a jag.
