    NGD!

    Well, it showed up today! I'm in love! It's not a perfect flame, but it's good, and the top and back also match. Is that normal?

    This is my third guitar (Mira and SC HB Std) with 57/08s, and I still love them. Both of the other guitars have coil taps, and I can already tell I'm going to have to do this mod here, too. I really wanted an SC HB I, because I was worried about the II being too bright with a maple top and back. Out of the three guitars I have with these pickups, this is the darkest! I was a little shocked, in a good way. It's a throaty, bluesy beast. I may end up swapping the 11s for 10s at some point, but that's down the road.

    And one of our bassist's new beaut:

    That is cool.
    If something is too hard to do, then it's not worth doing. You just stick that guitar in the closet next to your short-wave radio, your karate outfit and your unicycle and we'll go inside and watch TV.

    Thanks. I have been jonesing hard for a 408 or Brent Mason, in part because of the pickups, but also because I haven't been able to find an SC HB I or II in the price range I could commit to--even used. I'm still interested in the 408-guitars, but not for a while.

    The bass isn't mine, but it'll be on stage next to me.

    I was thinking of doing the same. Let me know and I'll help coordinate in any way I can. I am dying to play a couple of yours!

    Nice! Almost positive Mark S. @ Sweetwater showed me that one (I remember from the figuring on the top opposite of the controls!) when I got my Makena Blue HBII.
