@cuntflambe what’s your Mesa Boogie? I want
It’s not a particularly revered boogie as it was made in one of their tight times so the pots are notoriously weak, I have to fix them every so often. It’s a Nomad 2x12. It’s not that good for metal to be honest like you’d expect but it has a real good driving sound and the clean to crunch is to die for.
I actually like that man, nice and i’m fussy with strats. I prefer 70’s heads and always dark scratchplates. I made a new one for mine, guitar is slightly greeny off white but I dark wood plate on it.
Ooh lovely, you keep the scratch plate on? I removed mine and don’t yet regret it
Hasn’t occurred to me to remove it really.
hmmm, I was to have an LP I think i’d take it off but no idea the reason why. I did have an Aria pro2 lespaul shape years ago but part chopped it it with some other bits for a PRS baritone.
I can’t think of one either.
Just looks cleaner? Dunno. Mine is cherry burst with a cream scratch plate so it looked nicer without. Deffo less of a difference with black I guess
To say it has new strings it’s holding tune pretty well.
This was the offending broken washer that was partly responsible for fucking it up
I Have my fingers out and they usually hang around and over the 1st string so it depends on how hight the plate would be, that might feel weird. I can’t ever remember a time when I have played with one and it hindered me though.
Oh shit, I was going to look today for you but you sorted it then?
Axesrus had a full set.
I got them today.
Excitedly I ran up to fit it and was annoyed to discover that the centre hole was too small so I stretched it over a screwdriver. Fits now.
looks just like my LP but mine is matt and the fret markers are different.
Couldnt resist the green, saw it and knew I wanted it, only 200 in the world apparently (pretty obvious why).
Yours has a cross in the 12th fret too doesn’t it? Being the Goth model.
Ha shoe! yeah but it’s the kind of colour that will be shunned for years and all of a sudden be desirable. I like it.
Go on, what’s the catalog colour name for that green?
It would look amazing with a brown wood scratchplate.
