  1. The Mesa site has vids too. Personally, in not too interested.
  2. Not a fan of any of the modern Orange amps I've tried so far. Had an OR120 for a while, that thing was a beast.

  4. I remember the original threads for some of those, I was just busting yer nutz.
  5. Actually, Antiquity I bridge, and antiquity II neck sounds like the best combo for me. Tame some of the brightness in the bridge position.

  7. That thread is a great help, but the replies are what makes me question myself.

  9. My goal is to retain that classic JM tone. I know some early JMs were thinner and "surfy". Which is cool, but I'd like a combination of surf and body, tone wise.

  11. I've read a lot on the offset forums too. Still unsure. I have Rose Picassos in it now. They're sweet, but I'd like to get more of a classic tone out of it. Yeah, those a certainly in my price range. Do they compare? I = darker II = brighter ?? I know pots can change those characteristics too. Those eBay pickup builders are in the same range. Pickupwiz, and the others. Novaks are heralded as the best, but a little more $$.

  13. I'm looking to get some replacement pickups for my CIJ. Pickup descriptions include CBS, 50s, late 50s, 60s, etc.... I'm not sure which I want? I'd like some balanced, and not too thin/brittle. Vintage is okay. I don't want anything too modern or high output.
  14. Bottom line: if you play guitar, learn how to set it up. No need to bitch about set ups after that

  16. edit: it's a squier. Those pickups are similar to the CIJ JMs. basically single coils. If they're anything like the CIJ I have, the neck and middle sound okay, but the bridge is pretty bright and thin?

  19. I never expect a guitar to be set up. It's not really that big of a deal, and comparing it to a dealer selling a car without balancing the tires is an exaggeration. If you're paying for string changes or set ups, you really need to do a little research and learn for yourself. It's really not a big deal. Depending on how much you clean, and how far you go........it shouldn't take you more than an hour. Even if the guitar is set up well, I still like to pull it all apart, clean it, and do a full re-setup. I like my guitars better when I set them up.
