I remember that one. It never stayed in tune after I’ve used the whammy bar. Now I know why.
For the moment I mostly play on my sonic blue „strat“. It’s made by parts from Allparts and Hosco. The pickup config is Dimarzio Hs-4 / Hs-3 pickups in neck and bridge. Refretted with dunlop jumbo frets and fully scalloped. (By me)
With only one layer of nitro lacquer it flaws pretty easy. Looks almost like you dragged it behind a car. But it’s 100% pure worn.
It’s equipped with Dimarzio Paf HB in the bridge and an Air Norton in the neck position. A fully scalloped neck with jumbo frets, Willkinson tremolo and Fender locking tuners.
Locking tuners, for the ease of string change and for the tuning stability.
I mainly use Dimarzio pickups (Paf 36th (bridge), Super Distortion(bridge), Air Norton (neck), Hs3 and hs4)
Picks: Dunlop flow 2.0mm or Jazz III Ultex
Live I’ve been using either my Kemper or some pedals with the backline amp on the venue. Hopefully it’s a good amp.
Lately I’ve been going back more to tube amps. I recently bought a 50w 1987x clone. Sounds so great after (Jesper Karlsson of Amps By-Racing) did som magic with it.
My main cabs are:
Nn old noname 2×12 with Celestion v30 and an old Marshall 2×12 with Celestion g12t-75.
