Just wondering what kind of mods people have on their guitar (i.e the Gilmour switch). Maybe if you can, include how it effects the tone (i.e gives it a more "phat" tone).
That is some serious stuff man aha i would love to see a video one day of all the tonesThis SG pictured on the right had at one time 2 DiMarzio Dual Sound Humbuckers and the middle single coil. Each HB was controlled by a 5 way rotary switch(frt coil, rr coil, series, para and phase), both HB together could be joined series, parallel and phase and the single coil could be added to any combination. I believe there were approximately 90 different tone switching options - some subtle, others dramatic.
When I was a Kid I was given a chemistry set. Me being what I am, combined all in one test tube to see what I get. Did the same, later, to this guitar.
Nice man do you have a pic?Zhangbucker (best p/u winder out there IMO) alnico 6b/4n set in my SG and P90's in my Firebird, some Dimarzio's in a couple others, couple capacitor value changes here and there. My Firebird also had all the gold hardware (yuck!) ripped out in favour of nickel, changed to Gotoh with nylon saddles for the bridge/tailpiece.
Ya man forsure, always gotta make you own tone sound how you want it to beOkay, here we go!

Why? 'Cause I don't wanna play a Jag, a Tele or a Les Paul but my Jag, my Tele and my Les Paul. I change what I think would be improvments to my needs and I enjoy the little project it brings.
