Which model?

Re: Show us your Stratocasters!

The blue one has my favourite Fender finish. The pink one has no dots. I think that blue is also my favourite Fender colour. I like their olympic white and sea foam green too. You are correct, no clay dots, and 22 frets :wtf: The pink one is documented in the "What's on your workbench'" t...

Re: Telecaster Pickups

They are darker due to the dummy coil, this is why some Fender Noiseless pickups come with 500k or even 1meg pots in order to bring back some of the highs that with stock 250k pots just aren't there. Right, and with the 1meg pots I think they work quite well. They sound quite percussive to me, but ...

Re: Stapleton Pickups

Has anyone tried their acoustic guitars, or know anything more about them? For that price, I'd suspect they are having them built in China, but you never know. They look cool. Hi, olegmcnoleg, I'm Roman from Stapleton Guitars! We build our guitars (and pickups) in Rolleston, Canterbury :) That’s fa...

Re: Would you happily play a really cheap guitar?

Absolutely, making music is what makes me happy. I can be happy banging a couple of pencils on a desk! If the only guitar in the room is an old beater classical with a monstrously high action, i would still want to play it. There have been times in my life when I’ve only had cheap guitars, I still p...
