So, this guitar came to me via way of a friend who couldn't repay a debt (I had given him other money, then when it was time to really dish out some bucks, we agreed the Tele would be collateral) What was the final straw was when we'd see his wife going to get her nails done, hair done, toes (pedicure or something) and other meaningless costly stuff that I said, fine, I'm keeping it then. So, I've had it in the closest for awhile, really haven't thought much about it. Seeing the Black Guitar Thread got me thinking about it (it's the translucent black, where you can see a teeny tiny bit of wood grain....pretty cool actually) It's stock. It's not bad at all, though the input jack is loose as all heck and no matter how many times I tighten the darn thing it just doesn't like to work. Yay for Modern Player quality lol. Knowing I've got a plethora of other instruments: And actually a few other guitars like: and (Epi Slasher) Even have a different Parker guitar So.......pups, pots, tuners (though the Strat will get it's treatment before this guy) ect..... I play mostly 90's rock/alt rock and P&W stuff.....BUT - I LOVE getting my metal on man!! I haven't had active pups for years, like, so long ago and can't really remember what they're all about. lol I'd love to hear some input. This is nothing that will happen tomorrow or anything, but that one thread got me thinking so I thought I'd throw out a post....plus I'm a sucker for finding reasons to post my music crap - I'm addicted, I know.
