Following yesterday's hard case upkeep, it's only right that I attend to its content as well - the Gibson
LP SG Standard.
Got this replaced. It's semi-functional, crackled while in use. When Beez tested it out, it failed to work completely.
As you can see there, the original Gibson humbuckers are back in place (490R/498T), I'll save the story for another episode. Trying the new set of EHX strings here; more on this soon.
Also back in place are the original reflector knobs. That's right, I switched the 3-way toggle switch tip to the black version.
Beez at work - everything up & running in 15min at most.
This is Beez's signature of sorts; exposed wires or the ones with a high potential to short-circuit the system, would be sleeved.
As for me, I like to keep things in place so that they won't get in the way when the pickguard is re-fixed into position.
Things are taking a non-Ibanez turn here. I play them less often lately, I'm now in Gibson mode. The Curleigh era will see deadweight models being eliminated from the catalog so it's a good time to see what's worth getting/ keeping in the mean time. Not planning to binge purchase what's left in stock, I will only be interested in the ones that would likely serve my needs. An example would be the 2016 Explorer T that was acquired recently. I'm no Explorer fan but the 500T/ 496R pickups in that guitar screams heavy music all the way.
