What sounds incredible?

And I believe the shop does, but I don't think it works outside of the UK.

They offer finance, that's not the same thing. It's effectively a loan you take out and pay back monthly.

Well. Whatever it is, I never looked into it, as I wouldn't be able to use it anyway

I probably have the pictures somewhere. It's not all that different from this, except it has a HSH pickup setup, and a rosewood fretboard

Nope, you're right. It's maple.

I wonder if it's the same guitar in the picture, but modified?

Nope completely different, the only thing that's the same is the silhouette.
Yours has a darker more tobacco burst, rather than the reddish on this, different bridge with stringsavers and possibly abalone dots? The neck is a two piece birdseye maple with birdseye maple board (no skunk Stripe).

I'm impressed. Have you documented the specs since you played it that time?

I realized the bridge was different. No idea what kind the one above has, but mine seems to have a standard strat type bridge with string savers.

Thing is, I don't think it was this spec originally. I'd imagine all three pickups were SDs... didn't you say he recently wired it up with the two magic BKP humbuckers? (or maybe it was someone at the shop who told me that, not sure)

and it's changing again for what it's worth. White holeyless pickup covers on the humbuckers, and a new middle pickup (also with no holes - should look a bit like a lace sensor). Should sound the same overall, just with a different middle pickup. Proper single coil this time.

Is there a wiki for James's new guitar? I should write it. I really like that guitar.

Hugh told me he'd just re-wired it with BKP's but couldn't remember what BKP's they were. They were pretty beefy though, way louder than the MBK1's in the red MA demo guitar and the Shawbucker in the deluxe strat. Sounds like it will be pretty different looking next time we see it.

You should. Back in 2013, crazybobbles actually offered to let us put some of our guitars on musewiki like he did with his. I recall Olly did for his M1B1, but I never ended up doing it.

And I wouldn't know. They said they were mules, but they played it over the phone, and it sounded massive. I would think that it would sound really bright and almost thin with pickups like that, considering the spec of the rest of the guitar.

Not too different. Mainly just a new middle pickup and white covers over the two humbuckers.

Also, the pearl back plate will need to be replaced since the pick guard is standard white. Will probably just do that myself though.

Did they sound like anything you're familiar with?

Not really, if I had to guess I'd say the Miracle Man seem to fit the description. The bridge at least was hotter and fuller in the mids than the nailbombs I've played and it was really, really loud compared to the MA and Strats I'd been playing.

It would make sense that it's something high output, considering it has the hot rails in the middle position.
