I'd think it unlikely you have two neck pickups?

Edit: this one appears to have a narrow spaced bridge pickup for example

Both are legit originals - the seller said they were pulled from this other guitar (a westbury of some sort), and supposedly you could only get the creme plastic covered ones if you were a manufacturer.

Technically, there isn't a super 2 set. They were recommended as neck pickups (to be paired with the super distortion bridge pickup) but you can get the F spaced version like I did before.

And that's really interesting. Maybe my other one is actually an eastwood reissue in disguise....they did seem inconsistent though. They were built at two different factories for one thing

So I finally pre-ordered the new RB's album. Hopefully I'll get a presale code and tickets for the 9:30 show. I tried to ask a few coworkers to go with me and they were all like "Who's Royal Blood?"

I had a coworker tell me they were "alright" when he saw them open for Foo Fighters Granted he enjoys more technical stuff like Dream Theater and Alter Bridge, but still..

I know mate. I'm going to be shopping there almost as much as I do at Mansons. Almost.

I already bagged one of their old amps and Josh's guitar, so I think I need some peddles next.

Which of the Royal Blood NY shows are you planning to go to, James? I'm for sure gonna go to the DC one.

Been talking back and forth with a Sweetwater "sales engineer" on purchasing the Gretsch G2220. He's really nice & patient, especially when you take into account the $300 guitar. Makes me wonder why people would want to shop at IVG ever

So they're a pair of neck pickups? That kinda makes sense if they're both narrow spaced?

Edit: This one? http://www.westburyguitars.com/westbury-tn-2000.html

If I did, it would be the festival. I'm hoping they'll play a normal venue in NYC, but I think it's unlikely at this point

And yes, they have great customer service. That's probably the only online US dealer I buy stuff from unless it's something really specific.

Sort of. They were meant to be paired with the super distortion, but they can be used in both positions, hence the F spaced model.

And I think they were pulled from a standard, but none of the ones I've seen have the special covered ones.

For any Nothing but Thieves fans out there, they teased something new today via their website. Nothing but a 10 second clip, but could be yet another record we get this year.

They're on their way back now. Not exactly cheap, but since these were parts guitars, I wanted to get them sorted properly... you know, since I was the one who assembled them. But it didn't seem like there were any surprises at least.

I just need to find someone I can trust with that ovation. It's all good as far as restoration goes, but it doesn't play well at all. On a somewhat related note, I think that reverb store goes live tomorrow... exciting times...

Also, this

Pretty much all sold out... and I didn't buy a single item. They still have a few of those G force units, but I wouldn't use one at all.
