wow, that looks great. How does it play with that bridge and did you ever try it with a trem on? I always wondered about the feeling of a JM/Jag trem on a MM oder Duo Sonic whether or not the break angle of the strings is good enough to do this mod.

Bridge might be a bit overkill. Thinking about cheaper options but the bridge was just lying around.. works fine tho! Trem worked ok but the nut caused it to not go back in tune when using it and I wanted to try hardtail. And that was just 100% what the guitar needed. It’s perfect!

PS. I’m actually putting a baseplate on the Duo sonic to the right in the picture. I’ve already modded the stock bridge and tried it with a jazz/jag faction baseplate, and it worked great. Looking to get a custom shaped baseplate tho.. DS.

From left to right: (the Scotty Moore Epiphone is my girlfriend's) - Tanglewood acoustic - '03 Squier Strat (Chinese made, my 1st electric. These were truly terribly made) with Jazzmaster neck (broken truss rod) and pickups from a 90s CIJ Fender - '09 Partscaster with Lollars, refinished in aged Firemist Silver by Rexter - '04 Telecaster (US Fender) with Novaks - PS Bass VI with toggle switch for each pickup, Q-pickups Jag + JM pups - '07 CIJ '62 reissue Jazz Bass with Novaks

I'm thinking of getting the Tele refinished in Maui Blue and the Bass VI in Burgundy Mist

Just the offsets:

I just finished putting in some new storage. Now I can finally see everything in one spot. Plenty of space for more guitars and amps now!

My tiny guitar family. Since this photo I have done a little work on my Jaguar, just changing the strings and some adjustments. Mustang is "mine" but is to be a gift for my girlfriend's mom whenever i figure out how to take it back to the East Coast safely (or at least that's what I'm telling myself to keep myself from refinishing it shell pink..) Image


And just for fun, a little gif of "the band"

I finally figured out how to use a stud finder. Here's my G&L Duo.
