  1. Finally did a proper recording of my Bareknuckle Old Guard Pickups. Neck sounds pretty sweet to me and definitely has a vintage feel. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kt-HSbG2n0c I still need to learn how to use two and four positions, as I'm traditionally a humbucker guy. Bridge is fine although quite bright so needs to be tamed when clean, apparently that's a common strat issue and not just with these pickups from what I read. In the meantime, I think I'll be stuck on the neck position for a while. Let me know what you guys think.
  2. I wasn't a big PRS guy and always stayed more traditional to the Les Paul / Strat. However since I got my Custom 24 (because I always wanted to find out what the fuss is about), I've slowly been converted....quite deeply now. The comfort of PRS is not something my Fender / Gibson guitars could match, and the tone is really good for driven tone (recorded a sample clip: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B_zBcA35sII) I still prefer the cleans of Fender though, the neck single coil pickup tone is just too classic. Who knows with time if I'll start digging the cleans of PRS, if you guys have tips please let me know.
  3. Thank you mate, appreciate it. I heard demos of Nail Bomb and would love to give them a try.
  4. Not the best sound quality, as I realised my Apogee One was dead when I was about to record. Nevertheless I wanted to record some samples of the tone, so I did with the iPad. Let me know what you think of the tone (and the iPad sound quality).
  5. UPDATE: I applied pencil shaving+ vaseline on the nut, string tree, as well as the saddle, but no noticeable improvement. Though once I un-secured the high E and B string from the string tree, the tunings can re-set much better than before using a dive bomb. However, strings still go noticeably out of tune: - with any use of tremolo that's not a full dive bomb (ie a bridge reset motion) - when I bend the high E, B, or low E strings in normal playing I will try to play for a few days without using the string tree for now, but any additional suggestion is highly appreciated.
  6. Thank you, initial I wanted to get a red / cream but this colour is very cool! There are 3 springs at the back at the moment. I don't know much about Hipshot Tremsetter so will do some research. I use the floating tremolo quite a bit so would be great to get it fixed.
  7. Still getting familiar with the single coil sound as I usually play humbuckers, but this guitar plays like a charm. The cleans sound quite nice and better than my other guitars (at least that's how I feel at this moment). The video was recorded with iPad. One problem I'm trying to resolve is the guitar goes out of tune whenever I use the tremolo, then after a bend on each string it would come back in tune and play fine until I touch the tremolo again. I'm considering getting some nut sauce, as I suspect it's a lubricating issue. But if you guys have experience I'm all ears.
