Steve Marriott with

A 'burst!! This is the first picture I have seen of Marriott with a 'burst. And a beautiful one at that. Double whites in both positions. I ran across this picture on one of the forums and thought it should be shared.

New Sound Clip

James Anthony was kind enough to provide a clip of a 12k humbucker that I made for him. The guitar is an ES 339 through a '67 Vibrolux with Eminence Red Fangs.

The clip is here.

Melody Maker P-90 Mod

Here is an interesting little project I just completed. A customer sent me two Melody Maker single coils pickups for a re-wind and a P-90 mod. I can't take credit for the original idea as he provided me with a link to the site where he had seen it. The magnet in the coil is replaced with a steel bar and two magnets are used on the bottom.

You can see from this photo that the whole package still fits nicely in the original cover.

For the re-wind I used 43 gauge plain enamel wire and put 9800 winds on the bridge and 8800 winds on the neck. The inductance readings for both are right on with what I usually get from a P-90 so this set should really smoke.

Joe Bonamassa Interview -

I like it when Joe starts talking about how he can't get the tone he wants out of a Fender. The second part is there as well. It's obvious there's more but I can't find it.

1958 burst

Sweet faded top with a bit of flame. I love the aging on this one. There's a lot of great old bursts at Burst serial.
