Upgrades to one of my Charvels

Postby Genebaby » Sat Jun 10, 2017 9:41 am

Many years ago I bought this guitar, mainly because it was a Strathead, but of course it's nice that it's red too!!

It was let down big time by the stock pickups so I finally got around to changing them out with a pre-loaded EMG pickguard that is the Dave Gilmour model, as it has the pickups and EMG boost circuits that he uses.

I also had the back of the neck oiled, like a USA Charvel and now she looks and sounds better!

Looking in the stuff the guitar came with it's actually going to be 15 years next month that I got it!!

It was played very briefly back then, maybe once or twice, and so far twice this decade, ha ha.

I'm glad I have it, as it fills the Fender slot but with a Charvel, so it's win-win!
