    That's a sharp looking SC58, do you mind sharing the specs? What does the truss rod cover say?

    Looks cool - how come no PS Eagle on the headstock, though?

    Letīs see how this posts itself.



    Thanks everyone!
    Truss rod says "FJOG" which are my initials. There is no eagle on the headstock because i prefer the look of the signature.
    As you can see from the specs, i mostly went private stock because of the hand selected woods and the stoptail bridge. The one thing i changed is the pickups, i put the splittable 53/10īs in my JA15 and put a 59/09 bridge and a 57/08 neck in the private stock.

    I am not too good at tone reports, but iīll try.

    This guitar is very even all across the spectrum, itīs very rich, full and thick sounding. All notes ring out clearly when playing distorted chords and i get excellent clean Jazz tones as well. I have to say that i went with the stoptail bridge because i think it contributes to its fuller/thicker sound. It definitely has that Les Paul thump but with more clarity.

    On the HXDA: I coudnīt be happier, i love the crunch this amp has and its vesatility. I order mine with an effects loop and the series/parallel switch just to have 2 amps in one and it works perfectly.
    What i am really excited about is the medium gain tones you get out of this amp (Normal HXDA parallel). Iīve never played a plexi marshall, but i hear all the classic rock tones from that era in this amp.
