At that price I'd definitely go used. Do you have a friend who plays who could help you pick out one? What kind of music stores do you have near you?

Thanks stormin. Yes, it's a 21 fret neck. I was suspecting this was possible but I hesitated to try before someone mentioned it was. I guess I'll be doing that soon, like next week-end, I've ordered...

Agreed. I pretty much only use it for hi-gain leads. That being said on some guitars it sounds really nice. Check out the D. Allen voodoo 69 pickups demo on their website. They sound really, really...

I didn't like mine either. I got a DM Tone Zone S. Not much treble. Problem solved!

Is changing pickups an option for you?

I used to play 9-42. Then I got a resonator and the string gauge was much higher. Once I got used to it the 9-42 felt like warm spaghettis! :-D

Well, you don't glob it 'all over', you put some, not much.

Even if you don't want to, you do put a little bit of sweat on your strings when you play. But I guess wiping it out is probably enough...

Honestly I put in a 0.1 microF instead of the 0.022 and I swear it makes a difference. Kind of... dull.

Can you remove a strat's pickguard without removing the strings?

I've seen a guy do it by loosenings the strings and removing the neck. Which sounds extreme to me :wtf: but maybe it's not a big deal, I've just never done it. Is there another way? I'd like to...

Really? I thought it did. When your tone pot is at 10, you still have your pickup connected to the ground via the full pot resistance (which is 250K in my case) in series with your cap, right? But I...

Effect of tone pot cap on sound

Just to clarify: the value of the tone pot cap WILL influence the sound of the guitar even if the tone pot is at 10, right? Higher value = less highs?

Sweet looking indeed. Was it only $175 because a pot is borked? Or is it the going rate? Makes me rethink an epi es-335. Maybe this plus a pickup swap would be a better route to semi hollow heaven...
