Code: Select all
Now where are your git fiddles ???

*sigh* That will take a bit of work. For someone that plays as fucking badly as I do, I have far more guitars than I should

BUT

I will indulge. I have a couple that are real neato.

She also make the guitarra sound big enough to hear in the outer spaces.

I don't know how many times I've tried the fake Italian, but I don't think I'll ever get a handle on it.

More guitar porn!

I haven't done another big round of taking pictures of everything like I did back in 2005, but I have some pics from when I took pictures of everything at my space. The TB1000S, Ripper, and Victory Aritst are years gone at this point.

There's a bunch of other pictures taken here and there since then.

This makes me want to take pics of the other stuff I haven't photographed yet. For how many times I've felt like that, I've yet to take the pics. Maybe if I frame it like updating my renter's insurance or something... At the very least I need pics of the three newest Lados and an updated version of Tutku's (the red one) which looks fricken awesome with the pickup and bridge replacements we've made.

I've got a folder with a handful of pics of amps, too, which I left out here, and maybe I'll get the rest of the amp pics together for a similar thread, for the amps, unless those should go here as well? The title seems pretty clear.

Wow. <hand on cock>


I am down to two electrics, Fly's Electrical bass and a Les Paul Jr. However, I have one of those places where people leave gear for extended period of time with no love. There's a Univox Hi Flyer thing and a 73 Tele bass ithat have been in the house for about a year or so. Fun.

Second from the left, that's a Russian one, no? Looks vaguely like a Formanta.

EDIT: On second thought, not really close, but kinda. Kinda.

NO IDEA what it is - but it looks more like your example than any other I've seen. It just says made in Japan - it doesn't look like anything I've ever seen before but shares a lot of commonalities w/ some of the Teisco's I've owned/seen.

That's my recent $25 craigslist purchase. It needs help and love to work again. And by love, I mean money. I've got a few ideas but sadly I think that crazy panel box on top is probably going to have to go - the electronics are all super jacked overall and the switches are complete crap - dunno that I could replace them (nor do they seem to make any sense when they do decide to work). The pickups are also shit - microphonic as hell (again, when they do want to work). It needs: tuners, nut, pickups, wiring. It really could use a fret job too. And the bridge doesn't seem too loverly - very similar to your example - jazzmasterish. I think this is going to be something I practice on myself to learn more about guitar setup/repair because I could easly spend HUNDREDS on this getting it up to playable standards - especially if I have to pay someone else to do the work.

First thing I'm going to do is string it up w/ the 3 working tuners to see if the truss rod adjustment holds before I do anything. If not, I'm going to teach myself how to steam off a fretboard.

Yeah, that's my EGC baritone, had it since 2005 and talked about it here (I thought) enough to make people puke. It's like a normal 6-string, standard tuning though it's from A-A (7 frets down from normal guitar), but the two thinnest strings are doubled like on a 12 string. The one he's building for me at this very moment is a 10-string, like a 5-string guitar with all of them doubled (all pairs are an octave, not unison) which will be tuned down to C, in between the baritone and a standard guitar.

Five switches total. For each pickup, there is a 3-position coil switch (single coil, series humbucker, parallel humbucker) and a 3-position polarity switch (not phase reversed, off, phase reversed), and then the 5th switch chooses between "setting A" and "setting B"... that's what the four knobs are for... Two are the "setting A" volume and pickup blend, and the other two are "setting B" volume and pickup blend.

I'll be using a very similar scheme for my new baritone, but with three individual volumes (one for each pickup) for the A setting, and another three individual volumes for the B setting. And there will be coil switches for each of the two humbuckers, and polarity switches for each pickup as well.

That Explorer was my first time trying out the A/B setting idea, which I really dig for its maximum-flexibility aspect, having a single switch to flip to go from one collection of settings to a second (and potentially radically different, if you choose) collection of settings.

That Ibanez Studio (the one with 10,000 switches and knobs) was modded by a previous owner, and it's the guitar that showed me what a wide range of tones an instrument can have and got me hooked on the whole knobs-and-switches thing. I just used it live, at the two shows the Chrome Robes played out of town, only for our newest song. I have it tuned down to C and with only 5 strings on it right now, acting as a proxy instrument for the forthcoming baritone. Hopefully the new baritone is here in time for the BBQ... otherwise it'll be the Studio.
