  1. that amp should sound fine. if you're not digging it, though, just demo some different models at your local shop. be sure to bring your guitar with you as you want to find something that sounds good with it AND most shops don't have a healthy stock of these guitars.
  2. Very trew. On American Idol she was just an average girl and now she looks decent but who am I to judge I look like complete #### myself. "CASH. it makes a turd taste GOOD!"
  3. totally. it's not an argument until i call you an a-hole! all i know is what i've read and my own experience. the information i've found suggests everything from the claw having little to no effect and just being for aesthetics all the way to the otherside where it increases tonal quality and even pickup output. by and large, though, most people say the claw will definitely have an impact as it is (a) made of metal and ( attached directly to the pup. what that impact amounts to is probably based on a number factors (pup quality, guitar shielding, gain used, etc). my experience with my setup ('62 reissue w/ a sd lil 59 in bridge) is that it does not alter tone in any noticeable way. the extra metal did seem to lend itself to the guitar feeding back a lot easier than without the claw. essentially, the outcome was having a great sounding pickup that fedback microphonically like a cheap one does. no extra line noise, though. i may bring it back eventually, but for now it's off like a prom dress.
  4. Me neither, there's no logic to say it would. adding a large piece of metal to the back and sides of a pickup changes the shape of the magnetic field surrounding it. it wouldn't be noticeable unless the gain was up pretty high, and single coils are less susceptible than humbuckers. They said a similar thing about Gibson PAF's having metal covers on them, some guitarists had their tech's remove them. I've read articles on this 'debate' and a lot of people beleive its a load of twaddle as to whether it would make a significant difference. You could have a point but ater wax potting the Jag pup (claw intact) microphonic feedback is'nt a problem. it really does depend on the pickup. when i have a claw installed on my lil 59, i get tons of feedback, microphonic and otherwise. removed, it's quiet as a churchmouse. . . like any decent bucker should be.

  6. some joker probably just peeled of the decal. you can probably replace it pretty easily and nobody would know the difference.
  7. it doesn't look horrible, but it looks slightly out. you're right, though, it could be the angle.
  8. very tasteful. howz the tone?
  9. way to go. that looks very nice.
  10. yes, but we don't buy into your more logical dating or metric systems. go sell crazy somewheres else.
  11. nice. i'll have to give this some thought.
  12. i dunno, man. that thing's pretty clean. if it truly is a 67, it's worth it. way worth it and more.
