You have now enabled him. And it'll be all your fault.
I think it was the 2015 model that had the coil tap capabilities and two mini switches for using the option.
This showed up today. Not sure if the neck pickup works or not as I kind of get a reaction when tapping on it. Need to open it up to see whats what.
Nice and wishing you good luck! What was the issue with the string break angle and the bridge?
but worth it....(IMHO)
Never saw a P with Tbird type buckers until TB. Really, really curious as to how they play and sound..
No issue, really. I don’t know ANYTHING about the Babicz bridge. I had to look up instructions on how to raise and lower the saddles. When I read up more about them I found out that they come with a 1/8” spacer that goes under the bridge to be used if it’s needed. In other words, it’s optional. This Tbird had it installed, and my first impression was “wow, the string break angle is really shallow on this bridge”. Then I read that it was optional, and I took it off and adjusted the saddles. Without the spacer, the string break angle is greater. I do not know if that is a good or bad thing, but from what I have read, a greater string break angle is generally a good thing.
It took me a month to be able to sing harmonies and play Carry on Wayward Son. I will get it. Good thing I’m stubborn
I don't have a sound clips but I would say more mids and a bit less low end. I made this one from a Fender Blacktop Percision body, a MIM jazz neck and Lollar pick ups. The pickus dropped right in, no routing needed. The pickguard needed some filing to fit the pickup.
This one has a .22 Orange drop capacitor so it is a bit more aggresive to my ear. YMMV.
I got a P/J with a Thunderbird neck pickup in the bridge position. Sounds fantastic!.
3 ways are great! Did they ever have them on the Vintage Pro?
That's bad @ss Prog.
