Merry Christmas to all the Duncan lovers...

Here's some more pics of my new DS.



Model: DS-280M PRO (Vintage Pro Series)

Body : Selected Swamp Ash

Neck: Maple 1 piece

Pickups: Alnico-II ? Beefed Up ?

Control: 1 Volume, 2 Tone (CTS 250KΩ), 5 Way Pickup Selector (CRL)

Finish : Unsealed all lacquer (2TS)



As I expected, 'DS-280M' is written in the neck pickup cavity. The guitar is in very good shape, despite its aged appearance. It sounds awesome.

I just see they aged like Navigators NST line, have to be very carefull because nitro does fall off easily.

On the basis of what I have seen so far, this unsealed lacquer is even more fragile.

Here's what they called the 'Comfort Neck Grip':

As you can see, on the Navigator & the RW Signature, they are slightly 'curved'...

yeah i believe that's refereed to as scalloping the fret board edges. Nice touch. Bacchus do that on their empire model.

Although personally I don't mind either way. Angled, rolled, scalloped...it's all good.

Nice Nav Tele and Strats guys.
Nothing is better than a non sealed non grain filled finish.
That is how I refinish all my guitars...I love feeling and seeing the wood grain, keeping it in its natural state...not all glossy and smooth.

Here's an interesting Duncan, lipstick pickups a'la SRVs Charley:

I've noticed it hanging on the wall on some videos from the Seymour Duncan Channel, but here it actually gets a work out. Guitar playing starts about 2 mins in.

Though I have sold over 50 of my guitars over the past 2~3 years, no plans on selling my Duncans...I will keep only the best of what I own and they are among them...even the Traditional strat.
