i've seen one of those a lot of time ago. weird as fuck :lol: but it must be quite cool! how does it work? do you put a switch to choose which coils are active?
Yeah you can coil tap it so you can play it as a very aggressive humbucker or split it into a series of single coil pups or two hummers. Not sure yet what way I'm gonna wire it - probably just one splitter so it can be played as a single if needed. Found an American company that sell pre-wired wiring harnesses too - you just solder on the pots and the pups and away ya go! 8)

It's gonna be fuck yeah cool! :barscarf:
that's nice. versatile, bizarre looking and DIY! the soul of rock'n'roll :lol: :barscarf:

I bought my 13 year old the blue and orange one for his birthday, hopefully he will manage to be more accomplished than I was. £150 quid on gumtree along with a practice amp.

Cool, sid. 8) It's great when people encourage kids to take up an instrument and not end up being a poxy fucking DJ or MC or whatever the fuck music thieves call themselves nowdays!! :lol: :wink:

Love the basic colours of those basses too. Primary colours can look very cool on instruments. 8)

If you're going to play a "Cool" ( as in 8) ) axe then surely Lightning is the way to go!

Have we any other guitarists on here? I'm sure there are a few. I might start a guitarists thread in the basement (where this will go soon, don't worry) if we have a few.

Personally, I've been playing 29 years. Mostly metal, rock and alot of classical and neo classical. Technically proficient and sound on theory. Am influenced by Rhoads, Hendrix, EVH, Lynch and (just a tad :wink: ) Yngwie.

Own A Gibbo LP, Ibanez RG370DX with FR wammy and a Washburn G2V with Wunderbar wammy. And a couple of acoustics. And a bass guitar. Played in a good few bands over those years too.

Anyone else so inclined?

Oh and no fucking DJ's allowed!! :lol: :wink:
I don't know how I've missed this thread, DB do you really play a guitar? I would have thought a ukulele looks pretty full size when up against you fella :shock: :lol:

Time to revive this thread with some pics of my latest guitar build: an Eddie Van Halen tribute 5150....

.... as soon as someone suggests a good online photo hosting site that isn't Cube Upload. Pile of shit keeps asking me to change my password. I do. I log in. I get another message saying change your password. :censored:

Fuck off. :censored:

Any suggestions for a decent free site?

Waiting for the summer so I can make a mess in the garden, chopping up wood & making sawdust! As routers & table saws make to much mess indoors. :mrgreen: :twisted:

Well I downloaded Flickr (both the website and the app) but cannot get a photo to post on here. It either shows up as a hyperlink or as a broken photo icon.

Any ideas? I have the free version.

That Guitar you've built looks amazing, is that a Mahogany Body? - I just don't have the woodwork gene in my DNA :cry: Got banned after only my third lesson by the Woodwork teacher after nearly taking the top of one of his fingers off with a chisel... :oops: :oops: :oops:


It was okay though as I got to do extra Latin classes, which I enjoyed at the time. :oops: :oops:


I've got 3 Acoustic guitars one is a 6 String Avalon which I got from a company in Northern Ireland about 10 years ago, the sound is amazing, I've played at the local 'folk' club a few times on the Anything Acoustic Night and it used to knock the bollocks out of the Martins etc - It sounds very similar to a Lowden only far less expensive

https://www.avalonguitars.com

And 2 Taylors one of which is a Taylor 522C 12 Fret all Mahogany and is a thing of sheer beauty, I'll try and figure out how to put some picture son here if ~I can.

The model is similar to this:

This is the code bit that works, u have to mess with & delete the rest, then select the red picture image icon logo on yer post & insert the code inside. https://live.staticflickr.com/xxxxxxxxx ... xxxxxxxjpg

So click on yer pic in flickr , select share icon on the bottom right then next pick BBCode icon, select size & then & copy & paste the link, keep the bit above & get rid of the rest.

So this part goes inside the red picture image icon https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/489 ... 691b_m.jpg

So put the edited link inside the red image icon tag.

Found this classic old club badge on Flickr
