  1. 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 $$.

  3. 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.
