    25th Anniversary McCarty NF... kind of....

    Hey all, I picked up a sweet 25th McCarty NF recently but I could not get used to the NF in the bridge. it was too bright. So I had a mod done.

    I put in a Dragon I in the bridge.

    Let me know what you think...

    I don't know about a Dragon necessarily, but maybe a zebra open coil 57/08 or 59/09 would have been the definition of perfection for this model. I think it looks great!

    I bought one a while back and did this mod to it. It goes to 11:

    Yes and that works well on this guitar. but the Dragon has a lot more to add.. The combo is great especially when I split the Dragon..
