All done! GFS body & neck, Seymour Duncan Alnico II Pro pickups (with coil split).
I got the pickups at My Music's Going Out of Business Sale. I had them on a previous guitar and liked them. Nice clear humbucker with a very passable Strat-like split sound without too much volume drop off. I could channel my inner Slash! (I don't have one though. ) Very light basswood body.
Final assembly was done at My Music. The tech told me that someone asked how much they were selling it for. I offered to leave the guitar as a consignment and take offers.
Blue Family photo soon.
Looking cool. How does it play?
Any other goodies at the going out of business sale?
Cool,any sound clips?
Nice guitar, Jim. One PU too much for my taste, though.
Congrats Jim. The blue seems even more blue in a flake finish. Nice choice of pickups. Love the Alnico Pro IIs, I had no idea they split well!
Nice Jim! Perfect guitar for a night out at the Disco, the mirrorball will make it look stunning!
It plays very well. It could probably benefit from a little fret work though. The neck is skinnier than I like but very playable. The pickups sound great.
They don't have much left - just a few electrics and acoustics. 30% 0ff what remains so I tried to find something else but couldn't. Lots of band instruments. I thought of reliving my days playing trumpet in grade school but decided my family would hate me. My wife played trombone through high school and I thought of getting her one. The single remaining banjo got me thinking for a minute but realized the hit to my intelligence would make me unable to practice medicine any longer!
You wouldn't want to hear me play!
Just for the record, Jim, that is blue pearl, not blue sparkle. Blue sparkle is the wrap drum makers use that contains bits of blue flakes under a sheet of clear.
Thanks Bob. (I never understood why Gretsch called that grey patterned Jet "Blue pearl." I would have bought a true blue pearl Jet.)
A term drummers often use for pearl finishes is, "mother of toilet seat." Yes, I never understood why Gretsch calls the blue pearl Jet a sparkle finish, given that they have always made drums in blue sparkle.
Hey, Doc... Nice guitar, but what really caught my eye was the lovely blue Afghan, which reminds me a great deal of one my mother made many years ago. She could do wonders with needle, fabric, yarn...you name it. I'm convinced she organizes craft classes for the angels! So thanks for the picture that inspired thoughts of her.
My aunt made that for me back in the mid 70s. She passed away a few years ago. Maybe she and your mother are teaching together!
