  1. My '96 is routed for 2 J's. But I've had the same thought as you - P and J with a 2Tek? 👍
  2. I can attest to this. Josh wound me a set of Firebird pickups and they are FANTASTIC!
  3. Yeah, but does it work for 24.5" scale? 🤣 Seriously, great info and tip on the StewMac Notched Straightedge - absolutely worth every penny.
  4. Since the stock Eclipse pickups are mini-humbuckers, there should very little, if any, circuit noise. I've had a couple of guitars that had the exact same symptom, a buzz that stops when you touch the string. The culprit in both cases was a bridge ground wire not making a solid connection (on one, the bridge end of the wire was making inconsistent contact with the bridge; on the other, there was a bad solder joint on the common ground end in the control cavity). Hope you find the gremlin.
  5. Learning a new lick is always good, but I swapped out a tapered pot metal block for a Guitarfetish steel block on a guitar for a friend at work. The new block was a noticeable improvement in tone. https://www.guitarfetish.com/Upgrade-Steel-and-Brass-Tremolo-Blocks_c_219.html Steel is $21.95, brass is $24.95.
  6. Green may not be the most popular guitar color, but when it's done right, it's as good as anything. And this is DONE RIGHT! Congrats!!
  7. Don’t let me post after my first glass of wine!
  8. A 500k pot for the tone and/or volume should tame the treble.

    That will look AMAZING after it’s carved!
  10. The boy who cried wolf? Again? Hmmmmm, maybe the next thread, no one reads....
  11. I was going to say something similar...the Porsche really can be used as a daily driver and be reliable and last forever with very little maintenance compared to a Ferrari. A Ferrari V12 going through a tunnel, though......mmmmmmmmm! Back on topic.....
