  1. Yeah, everything about that guitar seemed good. Another guy walked in after me and went straight to that guitar, too. He asked how much it was and thought the owner said $795. He started heading for the counter and reaching for his wallet, no joke! I’d have a hard time paying that much for a Diablo. I guess I’m still stuck in the early 2000s where $1195 would get you a Cali Elite or Studio Custom.
  2. Wow! I just went through this thread, and what can one say that hasn’t already been said? You are truly a master of your craft! Man, I thought I was hot stuff a few years ago when I just refinished a ‘75 Strat! I’m in awe of your skills.
  3. No. There wasn’t anything wrong with it I could tell. I didn’t plug it in, but it didn’t look like a mistreated guitar.
  4. Stadium logo baby! I was visiting my favorite haunt today and saw the Diablo. It looks to be in pretty good condition. Highland Music, ask for Don - 205-254-3288
  5. Hmm, I’ve sure had a 36th Anniversary in my Strat for a long time if they didn’t work in the SG. Yeah, can’t go wrong for ninety bux. I’ll pm you. Been there, done that on the B&G pickups! I sold the ones below to Austin back in the day. You didn’t get those from him, by any chance? Thanks, I think I’m going to try JGale’s High-Order pickups. Those Gravelin’s shouldn’t last but a minute here if you put them up for sale.
  6. Thanks, but I’m really looking for something other than Gibson, although I wouldn’t kick a 500T out of bed.
  7. I haven’t heard much about those. Let me do some reading. 9.7k is right around where I was looking. Pickups have to be pretty dark to be dark in a SG.
  8. Thanks, but I’ve had the 498T in a couple of other SGs and they’re not for me.
  9. All, I’m looking for a covered bridge pickup for one of my SGs with a little more oomph than your standard PAF-type. It currently has the stock SG-61 pickups in it, and while the neck pickup ain’t that bad at all (really!), the bridge pickup leaves a lot to be desired. SGs are funny beasts, though, because pickups that are too hot ruin the vibe. No JBs. I can PayPal, or I’ve got some mics, 6v6 tubes, etc I could trade https://bham.craigslist.org/msg/d/graysville-misc-gear-mics-midi-tubes/7565440944.html Thanks!
  10. ‘Sup all? It’s been a while I was perusing Facebook Marketplace and saw a local ad for a PA-STK1 for $100 shipped. I tried to copy/paste the ad, but no luck. Search for “Seymour Duncan Blackouts” in marketplace. Dude is in Springville, AL.
  11. You didn’t buy that ‘64 from a fella in Canada, by any chance? I had a ‘64 that I sold in a moment of weakness (and down market, unfortunately). One of the better playing guitars I’ve ever owned, with a P90 of the gods.
  12. What about the steel block? You ever tried it? I hate to mess with a good thing with the unknownium block, but I’ve thought about ordering one.
  13. My Mk IVa has pretty much gone unused since 2018. I know if I sell this one I’ll never have another one, but they’re going for stupid money these days. Same for my Ludwig drum set. Speaking of Mk IVs and Triaxis, one of the biggest amp mistakes I ever made was trading a Mk IV combo for a Triaxis and 50w tube power amp, then selling my two halfback 4x12s for two EVM-12L Thieles. It sounded nice and all, but meh.
  14. I’d be all over that if it was local. I keep looking at my 4x12 knowing I’m never going to be in a band again that’s just gotta have a 4x12.
  15. Is it painted? I had one that looked just like it that I always thought was paint, but then seeing that one makes me think some came that way.
  16. I need a dual Humbucker pickguard for my Shell Pink Strat. Yep, that's just what that guitar needs.
  17. More pics of the Firebird. I'm all Fender. I could really use a Firebird with a Maestro.
  18. Ouch, not that bad when I had it. That's new. Fingers crossed.
  19. There was chipped paint on the back of the headstock when I got it from Jay. I confirmed with him that it was missing when he shipped it.
  20. Almost word-for-word what happened to my Vector.
