psw Posted October 10, 2008 Report Share Posted October 10, 2008 Ok...so this idea has been rattling around for a while and I got started...but not sure what the thing is going to become so I may as well share from the early stages for suggestions... This is a very strange "student" quality (as in not good) jazz guitar. I have taken the bad fake flame top finish off it (with lost of careful hand sanding) and what do I find under it...a lovely natural blonde (in real life it is normally the other way around of course )... The back is an ovation-esque plastic back and sides. It is a little hard to tell, but the pressed ply top has a distinctive violin arch top. Oddly enough, there are three addition sound holes under where I place that pickup...very odd, but this pickup completely hides they were ever there...hehehe The neck is from a slightly better strat copy. The original neck is thick and badly fretted with brass frets...as the body is reasonably compact (like a george benson kind of thing) it kind of works in it's own way... What I was thinking of doing was adding a piezo system with typical side mounted EQ and this Artec mini HB filtertron like copy. Had the sound holes been a little closer to the neck...I'd be tempted to transplant the entire strat electronics into it...as it is, perhaps this single mag might suit it better... I am tempted to add the strat bridge and tremolo into it with some reinforcing under the bridge and the piezo mounted into this support...possible... Anyway...perhaps I have not let this thing gel enough yet...so any suggestions will be taken on board... pete Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
