Hi, everybody! New to this forum - thanks for having me.
My main guitar is this 2004 '61 Reissue SG.
Image
It was a Guitar of the Month. I modded it pretty heavily - took out the old pickups, pots, and wiring and replacing that stuff with a Bare Knuckle Nantucket hum-sized P90 in the neck and an old Seymour Duncan '59 (double cream - that's pretty old!) in the bridge. A Bigsby B3 with Towner bar replaced the tailpiece, and a Golden Age roller bridge is on there currently. Pots, caps, etc.

Plays and sounds great!

So...how is it?
Why the 3 PUp model instead of the MKII 2 PUp version?

The Affinity Jazzmaster HH got alumitoned. Got these from Goroth :thumb:

Had to do some work on the pickguard so it would fit covered humbuckers and I didn't do a very clean job. I have to admit I don't like working with plastic with the Dremel too, it's so much harder to control than with tools. It doesn't show on the picture and you have to have your nose on it to see it, but I still would loved to spare myself the annoyance :lol:

Before pictures for comparison:

I love it to bits! Very comfortable body shape and neck. Great fretwork considering the price. Super light weight. Tuners are a bit on the cheaper side. Not too bad, they stay in tune all right, but I'm going to upgrade them at some point for something a bit tighter. I didn't know there was a 2 PU version, but I'd like three either way. More variation, and it's what I'm used to having (strat player).

Also, nice PU upgrade, DD!

String page is STRONG. That SG is killer, and love the look of those St. Vincents (and SV in general.)

This was taken the day before I bought it at a Sam Ash in Houston.

It's my new Pro Jet I bought a couple of weeks ago. Very comfortable to play, sounds really good and as I'm a headphones-mostly player due to living in a duplex, it's a nice change from single coils as I no longer have to use the NS-2 to cancel the hum. Super-lightweight, too. Going to get a Duesenberg Les Trem eventually as I had a lot of fun with the Bigsby on a two-toned model in GC. Got it very reasonably after trading in my acoustic.

Thanks! it's been the only guitar I've been playing the last two weeks because I'm still geeked about it and still trying out settings and pedals. I've wanted a Gretsch for ages but was put off by some of their hollowbodies (lshort dude, big guitar) and the necks of past Electromatics seemed too big for my liking. This is a 12" radius U-shape that fits my smallish hands pretty well. It's bigger than my Jag and Strat and feels a bit like my CV Tele Thinline-- substantial, but not chunky.

The knob near the pickguard is the master volume so I don't mess with it that much right now. It's kind of a weird layout with the master volume, then a separate volume control for each pickup and a tone knob behind them. I'm still experimenting with different pedals right now because the Blacktop Filtertrons are hotter than normal Filtertrons and are darker than my other guitars (all single coil). So, sometimes a dirt pedal will sounds super dark unless I crank the tone knob on the pedal. From what I have, my Rat, BD-2, Mini, DF-2, and 250 get along best with it. The OD-3 sounds pretty dark and a little more muffled than I'd like (love it with my Tele and Jag, though). It's super lightweight, too. I think it's around 7.3 lbs or so.

That Epi is glorious, and I am super jealous of your bookcases, what are they?
