  1. I have liked the Danelectro look and such, but I never really liked the idea of a wooden bridge. Randomly because I have a Tone Bender clone coming in I was watching Jimmy Page play with Jack White and David Evans and saw his black guitar. I thought, "I wonder what kind of Danelectro that is? It has a metal bridge it looks like." Checked ebay and saw the Danelectro DC-59 Modified and decided to pick one up since they are not too expensive. The one I am getting is the newer reissue from Korea. It has the dual concentric pots, metal nut, adjustable truss rod, gloss black finish. All the good stuff. Here are pictures from the listing. 1 by Hentai No Baka, on Flickr 2 by Hentai No Baka, on Flickr 3 by Hentai No Baka, on Flickr 4 by Hentai No Baka, on Flickr 5 by Hentai No Baka, on Flickr 7 by Hentai No Baka, on Flickr 8 by Hentai No Baka, on Flickr
  2. New pickguard day! It took a 50's style strat guard totally fine. Was going for a Gilmour look. IMG_5041 by Hentai No Baka, on Flickr IMG_5042 by Hentai No Baka, on Flickr IMG_5043 by Hentai No Baka, on Flickr IMG_5044 by Hentai No Baka, on Flickr
  3. New pickguard installed! Looks great. (Sounds great too.) Really happy with how it turned out.

  4. I think it is likely. I have a twin reverb and it gets that sound well. If you use a Super Distortion or a JB with 1meg pots, you get that sound pretty easily. His Jaguar with the humbuckers still had 1meg pots. I think that helps make that trebley chime.
  5. I am a sucker for a good Peavey. This one is a US Reactor. Pickups sound great and the neck is smooth and frets are great. It was a really nice find. Even came with a SKB case.

  6. The switch came today so I finished up under the hood there. All seems to work as it should. (Killswitch, Push/Pull, TBX tone pot, and Selector) Once Cooterfinger's pickguard arrives, I will be able to string it up and rock out.

  7. They are very similar. I have two vintage competitions and one reissue.
  8. That is my thought. You can find vintage ones for $2000. I got my US competition mustang with matching headstock for less than $2000.
  9. Cooterfinger (from another forum) finished making my neck pickup only guard. Pretty excited. As normal, his work looks excellent. hbnpg004_zps15bcf028 by Hentai No Baka, on Flickr
  10. I think it looks good too. Not sure why they just didn't use a normal decal on those. Not like they cost more to make...
  11. All finished! Sounds great. The bridge mod worked out great and I like the floating look it has now. Totally solid. Sustain is unaffected.

  12. Totally! (Sorry I missed the question earlier. I used rattle cans. Duplicolor Perfect Match.)
  13. I decided to suck it up. I went in the garage and got a piece of wood, cut it to the shape of the plate, shaved it down a little, painted it black, and now I have this. IMG_5003 by Hentai No Baka, on Flickr IMG_5005 by Hentai No Baka, on Flickr Kind of looks like a floating bridge now. I didn't have a full set of strings, so I used a couple scrap ones to check the height until I can go tomorrow to get some more strings. As you can see from the picture below, I should be able to get the action high enough for my liking. IMG_5006 by Hentai No Baka, on Flickr
