It sounds great. Never used these PUs before - they are nice and bluesy - not too fierce but still breaks up nicely when played hard.

Forgot to mention nice case too......

Very nice! I LOVE OBGs.....

What you said about the pickups is exactly my experience as well. All the PUs on my OBGs are bluesy and break-up very nicely which is exactly what I love. The 15-20 years of aging of the U.S. PUs and PAFs together with wood they used for the OBGs has really enhanced the excellent overall construction they were originally made with.

Nice collection Innadaze!

It's really light too for an LP - 3.7 kg

John,
I'd like to meet up sometime but the OBG is the only vintage Japanese I've got at the moment. My other electrics are a PRS Santana III and a Fender USA Strat.

Thanks for your comments.

The colour is actually cherry sunburst but it's not nearly as red as many I've seen.

John, give me a PM and we'll try and sort something out.

Hi guys,

Does anyone know what these (HB-R & HB-L) pickups look like without covers? White, black, zebra?
