I've played a few guitars that I would love to put a few bullets in. They had about as much tone as a cat in labor.
Did they have actives? I think the battery compartment ought to hold an M150 well enough.

edit: Oh, and I was wondering: Are the double tone and volume knobs found on a Les Paul/SG really very useful compared to a single volume and tone or a single volume and two tone?

Well, for one thing, with two volumes you can turn off a pickup and get a staccato on-off Jonny Greenwood-style thing with the pickup switch (although he has a separate switch to interrupt the signal, of course). And it can be nice to switch quickly from a warm low-tone neck sound to a bright bridge, or vice versa, without knob-twiddlin'. These are my rambling thoughts.

God yes. Thing is, with the two volume knobs, you can get any blend of the two pickups that you could ever want. There are very few things sweeter to my ears than the sound of both my SG's pickups with the neck pickup rolled off just a tiny little bit.

tl;dr pickup blending is for lol and win.

For those who missed it, Here 'tis

Thanks! I like it a LOT. ESP guitars are so good. Everything I like about 90s-era Jacksons (great build quality, excellent pickups, reasonable prices).*

Maybe today I'll take pictures of the rest of my stuff. FOR GLOATING

*GEE THANKS FENDER FOR BUYING JACKSON AND IMMEDIATELY RAISING THEIR PRICES $500 AND ALSO DRIVING THE VALUE OF USED PRE-FENDER JACKSONS WAY WAY WAY UP YOU CUNTS

YES. You can have one pickup completely off, you can have both on and dial in a kind of dual sound, you have millions more options. You can do that pickup switching/tapping thing that Tom Morello does by having one pickup totally off. Having two volume knobs unleashes a whole new realm of possibilities.

Now that is exactly the kind of guitar that it shouldn't be done to. Les pauls are too beautiful. Something that looks like Pat's squier, I could see. Especially fitting since that kind is called a bullet, right?

You think his is bad? Should see mine. I had a girlfriend that out of anger one day decided to start smashing the guitar off a pole. There's flakes of wood missing everywhere. I've covered the body in duct-tape, and in a few weeks, I'm going to get a new bridge/pickguard/humbucker/output from Guitar Fetish and get it back rocking.

MAI OTHER BABIEZ

LET ME SHOW U THEMS

[img width= height=]http://www.questionablecontent.net/images/std24.jpg[/img]
This is my other main guitar right now, a PRS Standard 24 Anniversary edition. It's all-mahogany with a rosewood fretboard, and has the Standard neck carve (which is like a slightly narrower, slightly faster version of PRS' wide-fat carve). The all-mahogany body and passive pickups make it darker sounding than my other guitars, but it's great for multitracking, and the bridge pickup has probably the best solo tone of any instrument I've ever owned (with one possible exception below). Also it has fancy bird inlays which match my tattoos. Yes I am a nerd shut up.

[img width= height=]http://www.questionablecontent.net/images/firebird.jpg[/img]
My Firebird Studio. Doggs it plays so good and sounds so good. It's got Gibson's 490 and 498 neck/bridge pickups, which are my favorite pickups Gibson makes- the 496/500s on Les Paul Classics and Explorers are too shrill for my liking, and the Burstbuckers they're putting on new Les Pauls are too bright. Haven't tried any '57 Classics yet, I hear they're the shit though. This guitar balances a lot better than you'd expect, and the non-banjo-style tuners are WAY better than the standard Firebird's, which will not stay in tune for more than three minutes at a time. Basically this guitar is a weird-looking SG with better balance.

[img width= height=]http://www.questionablecontent.net/images/ibz.jpg[/img]
My Ibanez Prestige 7-string. I had no idea Ibanez made such high-quality stuff nowadays. Construction and playability-wise this $800 guitar equals most guitars twice its price. Too bad the pickups suck ass. I really need to replace them. I'm also considering trading this in for a 6-string Prestige- I like the low B, but I may be too used to 6-strings to really make the most of this instrument.

[img width= height=]http://www.questionablecontent.net/images/mccarty1.jpg[/img]
The jewel of my collection and the one guitar I could see myself hanging on to for the rest of my life. I haven't found another instrument (and I have played hundreds of different guitars, many of them Very Fancy Indeed) that sounds as good or plays as well. Seriously I am sorry, all other guitar players ever, but I have the Best Guitar. The only reason it's not my "main guitar" right now is all the music I've been recording lately has been in drop-C, and the McCarty pickups don't respond that well to anything below drop-D. The higher-output pickups in my Standard 24 and the super-hot EMGs in my ESP handle it much better. The Firebird sounds all right but its truss-rod goes OH NO WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU DOING STOP IT when I tune it down, so I don't.

[img width= height=]http://www.questionablecontent.net/images/mccarty2.jpg[/img]
Here's a close-up of the top. Remember when you could actually find guitars for less than retail price on eBay? Yeah I bought this thing for about $1000 less than it was worth. Score.

I know what you're saying about Jackson. A few years back, I Inherited from my uncle his '91 CS KV1. Probably the most beautiful guitar I've ever seen, Satin black with Silver bevels, Kahler trem, and an '59 and JB combo. It was stolen from my house in early '07, and though insurance gave me $2000 for it, I still feel ripped off. I've not played a Post-fender KV2 that sounds ANYWHERE near as nice or plays anywhere near as well.

I bet some druggie pawned it for smack.   :-( :-( :-( :-(


And if you're planning on parting with that 1527 in the future, I'd be glad to take it off your hands. Ibanez stock pickups suck on all models but the sigs D:

I paid ~$900 for it; I'd be willing to let it go for $700. It's still essentially mint, but I figure I had easily $200 worth of fun playing it. PM me if you're interested and we can work out a deal.

Actually I believe they are wooden replicas, many of which were 'plastic' as you say. But I do not believe that any Eastwoods currently are made from anything but wood, and well you know the other stuff that they make guitar parts outa.

It's pretty, but it's by no means amazing. I need to replace both tone pots, they're a little scratchy. And the humbuckers aren't really..hum..bucking? They're kinda noisy. I guess that's what you get out of a mid-90s Epiphone.

(also, though it has the look of the regular neck-through IIIs, it's a bolt-on.)

In my experience the mini-humbuckers on Firebirds and Les Paul Deluxes are just noisier than full-size HBs. Dunno why.

Firebird Studios are indeed set-necks.

I think instead of my 7-string I would be better off with one of these:

Yeah someone forgot to put more pickups on it.

It's like a Delonge Strat with a Floyd, dawg!

Dogg have you ever heard of a dude called Eddie Van Halen
AMP!
Apparently we have similar thoughts on control knobs. Although I can't really claim that as my gtr has 5 of them now. But srsly, I would be fine if they set the tone in the middle and turned it all the way up + skipped putting any switches or anything on my next axe.
One p/up would be fine if it were a good'un.

Personally I never use the tone knobs on any of my guitars, but I will readily admit that a bridge humbucker with the tone rolled all the way off is one of the best solo tones ever. It's great for weird, druggy sounding solos a la Spiritualized, Dungen, or Clapton.

IIRC, that mystery guitar is a Teisco. Although the strat-shaped headstock makes me think that the neck isn't stock.

Yes, and no, kinda.

It's a Greco. A Japanese knockoff from the late 80s.

I traded my SG Special in for it with a friend. My friend had bought it, but found the weight to be too much (he's a real tiny guy, Angus Young-size), so we made this deal.
In terms of second-hand-market price levels, it broke perfectly even.

I think it was a really good deal! I liked my SG, but a Les Paul just fits me better, honestly.

The Greco feels a little more "brutish" than my Les Paul Standard, but I actually really like that. It plays incredibly well, and sounds as good as the real thing at least to my ears. I'm really happy with it! :)

I still need a new 7-string though.

Some Teiscos had Strat rip-off headstocks.  There are a couple ridiculous ones at my local music store.
