If I show you mine, will you show me yours ?!?!
« on: March 03, 2011, 12:03:36 AM »
DB's thread on his new H-140CM VCB got me thinking about pickguards.  It might be interesting to have a look at all the sizes and shapes out there - or lack thereof.  So, if I show you mine, will you show me yours???  ;)

Since all 3 of my guitars have humbuckers (and 1 single coil in the middle on one) I wanted to try all single coils on one of my guitars. So I got busy.

This is my Carvin Bolt kit guitar with a custom made HSH pickguard.



I went to GFS to look up wired pickguards. I bought one called the tuxedo but the pups were pretty poor (not GFS branded) so I ordered a set of S60As from Carvin. I replaced the switch (had to duh) with a super switch and now I have tone control on all 3 pups. Now I have the new look and new sound of single coils I'm digging it.

That is sweet. Good deal?

Since we're showing off our axes, I guess I'll show the rest of mine. :D

This is my main axe, The Carvin DC127, lying next to the Carvin Bolt (kit)



This is the hand made BD (Buck Dharma) model by JC Harper Luthier.

It was $270 with case and free shipping! I was expecting something needed repair, but it is in excellent condition.

Thanks. That's the "no frills" model. The ones with bindings and paint jobs are really nice but I didn't want to spend money on 'em. It was poly wiped but I refinished it by sanding, staining and shellacking it. Bring the grains out a little more. I also changed the pups to Carvin Holdsworth set.

Yea, I'm a Carvinite. :D

That's a rare one!  I've never seen a flammed maple in cherry.  I've only seen it in a sunburst....
