    Well, it seems life has thrown a bit of a curve ball and opportunities on the other side of the country are being explored.

  2. Sounds - Triple Scoop Stratocaster Pickups

    Effects Pedals, Strings and more
    So I was on a bit of a strat pickup journey and I tried out McNelly Triple Scoop Pickups and honestly, that was pretty much the end of it. They're really articulate, bright and not harsh. So I made a little video for anyone interested in McNelly Pickups :) And here's something I did using...
  3. Build Thread Hipshot Harstail on Strat

    Guitar Building/Mods/Repair
    hey all, I’m looking at a strat with a Hipshot hardtail bridge— the one with the raised surround. There’s a sizeable gap between the bridge and the pickguard where it’s cut out for the bridge. Is that normal with these bridges or might the placement be off? Thanks!!!

  9. Working With Single Coils/Strats

    Electric Guitar
    I'm moving from a Les Paul/Humbucker sound to a strat/single coil sound and I've been having a bit of trouble rising above the mix for solos during jam nights, especially with other Les Paul players there. The strat (obviously, I guess) sounds a little thin in comparison. I understand that...

    Two 2018 fender player series HSS strats for the next album cycle. Gonna JB them both and get out there. May try and turn those into 2-knob pickguards... black PG may be overkill with the maple board but that's future musings. If you're surprised by this, we are a Fender band again ;) (the S2...

    hi all, I will likely swap out the pickups so I don’t care if it’s a Legacy, S-500 or Comanche. Ideally it will be ash, have a gloss maple neck in addition to the saddle lock bridge; 1 5/8” at the nut and a 12” radius. Thanks!

    Guitar Building/Mods/Repair
    Anyone know of a good match for Fender's Antique Olive Green here in Canada? I tried Krylon, had a good colour of the same name... but very thin, mostly solvent I think than pigment.
