Wonderful stuff, Bryan! Was it hard to take out the pots and replace the pickups? I am about to do the very same :) It was actually very easy! There was enough wire attached to the switch tags to allow the pots to come out of the F-holes. The pots were hardwired to each other by those huge caps whi...

1981 ES150...the journey begins!

Well, the autopsy begins! I really like this guitar. It has a big round neck and it sounds wonderful acoustically. The wood has really dried out over the years and it has a very sharp snap when you tap it.....like a really nicely tuned snare drum. The only let down is that the pickups have weakened ...

Very nice guitar!

It will be great having something as rare as that in your collection.

If it had regular inlays you would be getting a PM!! :D

Brian, I have a Deacci set now in my LS320CS, I gladly would send to you for trying them .... Wow Luis that's a great offer and very kind of you! Really appreciate it. What do you think of them? I go for lowish PAF type output and if they are the same you can perhaps offer your thoughts on them. If...

That looks stunning! They make a great pair. I like the way that the colour has remained in the top but the fade is so natural. The double whites look great too, which has given me an idea for my replica. I have always had covers on but your guitar looks great without them. Hmm........ Enjoy it! :D

Hi Emiel.......I seem to have got the collector bug! Yes, I mean Spence from Shed Pickups. I have quite a few sets of humbuckers, single coils and P90's of his. They are great pickups and they can be quite loud. Although I always go for around 7.5k neck and 8k bridge they are quite strong in output....

Now that I've had these semi's for a while it's easier to hear their own different voices in an objective way. The ES135 is the one I've been picking up the most. It has what I would call a traditional semi voice and has 3 good sounds. It's kind of not vintage voiced but not modern either and I just...

Cheers Luis! Great playing and some nice tone.

I take it the red semi is the ES100?

Thanks for sharing. :)

Cool!
I kind of figured that might be yourself but it was hard to see the headstock decals on the guitars.
Must be great having a wife that plays bass! She looks to be really enjoying it!

Sorry to read this. At least the guitar you have is a good one and you want to keep it. I don't know why companies would do that. They only get away with it once and they have lost a potential future customer in yourself and not only that, in the age of the Internet they have accrued a bad reputatio...

WTB. Tokai PAF Mk2 believed to be Gotoh!?

I would like to buy one of these Tokai pickups.

The pic is from my 2011 Tokai ES135. It is a bridge pickup around 8.5k.

Thanks.
