Oh boy. Wish you hadn't told me that. I know Eliot well.
Wow. That's quite a gesture for Matte to make.
Anyone close to NYC can try mine once it arrives (May-June hopefully).
sounds cool........no sparkles ?
Not this time around. But one day.
I got my Rockett III its an amazing guitar, I was not expecting such sizzle from the rod pole p90's They are bright and powerful, They do sound great but I will most likely swap them for a more traditional p90. I'm incredibly satisfied with the guitar.
Thanks so much for the kind words. I`m so glad you like it.
Regular P90s will sound great.
If you can wait a couple of weeks I'm happy to send you a set of my P90s. If you have others in mind I'll send you the specs of what I use with that bridge pickup.
Thanks I will consider it, You kind of screwed me up by installing a tone knob that REALLY works well, The more I play it the more I dig it.
I really need one of these with a HB bridge and P neck. No middle!
@Black Squirrel congrats!! I found the middle and neck pickups to be really useful in adding to the fender side of the equation, at times the neck pickup sounding like a bigger Jazzmaster. While also retaining the ability to nail legit r&b and soul tones that p-90s do well (but occasionally mud out on). Give them some time..
Such a great guitar, enjoy!!
The bridge + neck combination sounds really cool. Like a big fat Tele. You can achieve it with switching without sacrificing the middle (which sounds pretty bloody good on its own too) though...
Any news/photos on the Meteor/Meteor '59?
I have a Meteor '59 on order. The Rocket '59 was so amazing that I placed another order for one of Damian's carved tops. Now to forget about it until it gets closer!
