Thanks. The guitar you mention is an early 80s G&L SC-2; the pickups are G&L's Magnetic Field Design (MFDs).

From left-to-right:
  • My first electric guitar (Epiphone "Strat" clone) that I "decorated" in high school.
  • My Fender Stagemaster that I played until I got the LP. The electrical tape around the pickup is function-over-form, since the pickup was too big to fit in the original humbucker slot. Image The smudges are because it use to be blue, but I spray painted it black.
  • A knockoff of an LP by Lotus that a friend gave me. I traded him another crappy guitar that I had gotten at a pawn shop for $50. :lol:
  • And my now favorite guitar.:)

The Epiphone LP again.

I took the EMG HZ that I had put in the Stagemaster and put it into the LP, because I was getting a buzzing sound (that I think turned out to be the tubes in my Marshall not being biased high enough), but it didn't sound very good, so I replaced it with a Seymour Duncan SH-4 JB.

Before.

After.

Here it is in action. ;)

Ok, a shot I took today. All the kids. Posing with my Doc Martens. The little Epi lp 2 is in the midst of mod stage. I'm waiting for parts.

Yes - but just with a dry cloth and no polish. I guess the patina has rubbed off in the last 3 years or so.

Quite nice Toon, quite nice indeed..........I didn't know they used a plastic input jack surround on an R9 though.
Heres my 30th Annaversary Plaintop (which eventually evolved into various versions of the R8) that I bought brand new in March of '89.
I apologize for the poor quality photos........I REALLY need to take some better shots.
