I bought one of the 4 jaguar style necks used on reverb, then applied it to this weird little Fender pawn shop jaguarillo i've had for about 4ish years. Pretty sure this is the only aluminum jaguarillo anywhere in the world. I didn't get to play it for long before the kids got home, but I really love how it sounds, and it's not so much the sustain, but the punch and growl that's more pronounced.

Any EGC owners ever used a normal scale guitar for drop tunings? Like instead of buying a baritone, just getting a new nut cut and stringing it up with baritone strings. I Feel like it would do the job.

I hate not having Facebook/Instagram because I always miss out on shit like this. Just hit me that I can sign up with a fake name.

What do I do now? "Follow" or "Like" or "Poke"?

I played a TB1000 for years that I tuned to A.

Worked but the low A was wombly. Had to fret it lightly.

The fellow who set it up for me shaved back the nut and put in a little peg saddle that allowed another 1/4-1/2" of scale length, all just for that one string.

That helped some. I learned how to deal with the rest of it.

If you tuned to B, it would be noticeably better.

30" scale length is a different world.

I have the 1st bari Kevin made, which we traded notes on before he built it.

I traded him that Bean I played for so long after playing his prototype for an hour. Just sent it to him instead of sending the prototype back!

Kinda what I thought. I tune to B. I have a Hagstrom Viking baritone with EGC p-90s. It sounds great, but I guess I'm just used to that EGC neck now. Thought about selling the Viking to fund another EGC. Wish he'd start making more Beans and maybe a Bari-Bean!!!

I set up Tallchris' EGC-SG thing as a baritone. It worked fine. Can't remember his tuning.

I think B-B; worked pretty well, but like Tim said for his Bean bari conversion you had to have a gentle touch to make sure the lowest string didn't flub too much.

Guitar belongs to FM Mackro currently, so not sure if it's still set up baritone style...

Kevin told me at one point he wanted to make a TB1000 baritone like my old one. With a longer scale length than the original.

So maybe he'll read this and decide to do it at some point!

Nah, the Tyranny ain't getting away from me! It's the SG body neck refit that I got off Ebay for practically nothing in 2009. Sold it to Mackro in 2012 after Jury did the bari conversion and refinished the body to olympic white.

Oh fuck, this TB2000 with a metal fretboard added by EGC is like the perfect combo of my Bean and Electrical basses:

If I didn't already have two basses that I hardly play now, I would totally sell stuff to buy that.

Does the new fretboard have a radius to it, i.e. not the stock TB zero radius ? Looks like it to me. If that actually has a radius on it, well, crap, I kinda want.

That's the one thing I don't like about TBs is the zero radius fretboards. That and the EGC bolt on neck profile feels better to my hands.

I love me a flatter fretboard...And I like the TB basses for their Rickenbackery sound.
