Members vintage clubber Posted April 6, 2010 Members Share Posted April 6, 2010 So I was making a couple of adjustments on the Squier Bullet Stevie Ray Vaughnabie last night and plugged it in to play a bit. I'm still amazed at how nice this guitar turned out and plays. I did get a white tipped trem arm for it as well. Next I plugged in the Creamsickle which was originally a MIA Big Apple strat. It is wired with Fender Fat '50's pickups and is a great player. Lastly, I plugged in the Girly Monster which was originally a New York Pro. This one has the $50 set of GFS Vintage Alnico Strat pickups in it. This one is going to get a few more upgrades this week - steel gfs block (if it fits) , new tuners, tusq nut. Here's the interesting part...When I played the bone stock 54 Epi LP Oxblood against my Epi Peter Green with the BG pickups last week there was a huge difference in their tones. The difference in these strats was nominal. The MIA definately looks/feels a little better than the other two as it should for the price difference, but soundwise they are all three very close and I could not hear the kind of difference present in the two Epiphone LP's. All three guitars were wired and set up by me. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
