I would do the Dual Sounds on the outside and the Super II in the middle (that is if you prefer the Jerry tone from '82 through '88).

Actually I'm shooting for a late '78 to July '79 sound, which I think means Dual Sounds in the bridge and mid and an SDS-1 in the bridge. I have an original '78 SDS-1, but after installing it for a while in the neck position of my strat I decided it was way too warm for me, so plan B is the Rosebud arrangement of a Super II in the neck and bridge. I wonder whether the SDS-1 has warmed over the years. It really is thick and syrupy.

Sweet axes there Vic and Kier! That Walker is going to be a stunner when she's finished - too bad it's upside down :)

Wow, Holy Crap! you found one of those growing out of the ground in your back yard? Unbelievable, yer super lucky!! This thread is getting pornographic, I can't stop looking.

Erock, your work bench looks about as organized as mine... or as messy, depends on who's judging right? 8)

It's not a workbench unless it's a minor electrical and fire hazard.

I hear you jb - I love me some good guitar-porn Irwin and Cripe inspired guit-porn is even better

Hey I'm working here!

I have an organizational system here, it's called everywhere :)

Actually the bench is wired pretty safely. It is on it's own circut, and I have the outlets on the same switch as the light. Gives me peace of mind that after a few beers, and soldering something, as long as I turn off the light, I don't need to worry if I unplugged the iron or not

My resurrection also needed the frets finished as well as rewiring


One more point about mine.. I thankfully do not need re-fretting or any adjustments. Just a raise on the action and It was good to go.

That's a really slick idea! I might have to steal that when I set up a proper work bench.

one other thing, which I might add is you might want to also wire another set out outlets that are on all the time. I am thinking of adding that in.

I also stole the idea from my dad who is an EE and frankly taught me to solder before i could cursive write. good idea, and free to all.

This is a Carvin DC-145. I had it made with Wolf in mind. It does not have the same PUP config but the quality materials and construction contribute to the superb tone.
