The Maxon made "Super 70&qu ...

It's only the "Orville by Gibsons" that came with Gibson pickups.

The Orvilles came with generic pickups, and the ones I've tried are not that bad IMO.

I like tusq but the evertune would take some convincing for me to try it and even then I'd only try it on a beater because of all the routing that's needed.

I found it, went through your 1516 pics

Wow that's enthusiasm.

Anything Jacco says should be considered seriously IMO as he's one of the best MIJ researchers out there.

Well, I'm not a Kiss fan at all but I think Paul can play a fair bit but he's not a Guitar God.

No anything?

I need dots or inlays or something, I get lost.

I have a MIJ guitar with red dots on rosewood and I have trouble playing that because I can't see the dots very well.
