Ignore this. Plenty out there with handy dimensions to fit. I found one easily.

I can't believe I've been around since 2006. Still pop by, but not to post really.

My tune of the day thread is at page 135, I'm very proud of it :D

Love Rock pickguard??

Searched the forum as I'm sure this has been asked before but to no avail. Can anyone please tell me if a Gibson pickguard will fit my 2010 LS98? I bought it without but fancy having one, just because really. None of my friends currently own a Gibson I can borrow one off so that's a no-go. Thanks in...

It was my LS98 LOL. Small world Austin! I'm hanging onto it for now, I just fancied something with P90's in it. A few years ago the Classics were going for £599 here brand new and I have to admit not being able to forget that when I was looking at yours. I hope you get something nice in exchange any...

I've since had the fretboard poly lacquered and fitted a genuine R trapeze tailpiece. It looks and sounds 'right' now.
Thinking of moving it on as I fancy another tele but will have to see.

I've got a Jim Harley RHK330 from 1994, it's absolutely superb.

There's no reference to that anywhere on the net either. The same thing's happening here all in the name of John Hall is my guess.

I think he uses sd antiquities. I'd love to a/b a set against my humble tokai ceramics that's for sure. I'm looking at a small Marshall combo for the house now as I feel this guitar deserves it.

Nice guitar, Deadman. Similar to my ST40 (below). Though I did swap the original pickups for Wilkinsons, which I found gave me a tone closer to what I wanted. Incidentally, the neck on mine is definitely on the beefy side, especially when compared to those on my ST50 and ST55. How is the neck on yo...

maybe it,s the fact that you don't mind really strangling a tokai, whereas, if you've got a bona fide 'the guitar you've always dreamed of' fender/gibson, you treat it with kid gloves? the old fender cbs strat i use, (circa ?1200 on e-bay), is well worn, and i don't worship it, sounds great, magica...

Agreed.

Interestingly this was A/B'd by a mate of mine (he took it to band practice) against a CS Gilmour and he said there was nothing in it. The guy who owned the CS was impressed by all accounts.

Red Hot Chili Peppers :lol: Early stuff, not the modern rubbish. I also can't believe how light it is. It's a smidge under 7lbs on my bathroom scales, although in reality is more likely to be just over. The thing resonates beautifully too, I've played it more unplugged than powered up since I bought...

Ha cheers man. Are these ceramic pickups supposed to sound so good? I've read that I'd probably want to upgrade them but nothing could be further from the truth. Perhaps it's because I like RHCP stuff and these nail that sound. Honestly I just can't believe how good they are. After owning a fair few...

That's the plan! I'd love an LS150. I was mad not to buy one last time I had a chance.
