a lot of people put emphasis on name brand guitars, but i believe that even guitars like squires can sound amazing.
i took a squire jagmaster and replaced everything electronic in it.
i put a seymour duncan sh-4 pickup in the bridge, which can be split by the dimarzio pot in the tone pot. i cut a hole in the pickguard in the middle of the bridge and neck pickups for another
sh-4, which is activated with the dimarzio volume pot. to finsih it of i put a seymour duncan phat cat in the neck position.
the guitar sounds absolutely amazing! i can get any sound i want out of it! throwing that middle pickup in the normal 3-way switch action gets a fully depressed wah sound when combined with the bridge pickup, and a reverse phase sound with the neck.
not what i wanted, but an awesome surprise!
anybody else have this experience? or do name brands rule all of what sounds good?
tubeworks made some damn good amps bitch
