Or, "oops, I did it again".
Or, "Throwing good money after bad". Here's the Summer Project:
$79, sold as "used" and as you can see it's still got all the plastic on it. Odd, because the serial number decodes to the Indonesian Cort factory in 2008. Maybe it's another "bought a guitar, strummed it 3 times, put it in the closet for 5 years" sort of thing. I didn't ask. Was told over the phone it is "flat red not metallic" but it is most certainly metallic red, which was somewhat of a pleasant surprise. It's also got the regular "small" strat headstock, not the big fat CBS one that people either love or hate. Maybe this means it's the alder Affinity that's sold separately, instead of the agathis one that's sold in the Paks. The pickups are weirdly imbalanced- the bridge single is really weak and the neck is sofa king loud. Adjusting the heights didn't help. Doesn't matter though, they're getting swapped for a pair of humbuckers soon.
So...The guitar last summer got Dragonfire Screamer humbuckers (hot vintage) in it, this one is likely going to get Phat Screamers (hot modern). I'm going to wire this one up with a 5-way Super Switch so I can do series/parallel options on each set of humbucker coils. Yet, part of me almost wants to just go one humbucker, one volume and say **************** all the other tricks, it's Metal Thrashin' Mad Time. :robotmad:
I was thinking black pickups on a black pickguard, but Dragonfire also has red/black zebra pickup combinations.. What do y'all think?
