Mattsoncaster II begins

Postby SarnoMusicSolutions » Fri Oct 01, 2010 11:51 am

Just got the body. The project begins.

This is a fairly lightweight swamp ash body with a maple cap from Warmoth. Dyed top and trans-blue sides and back. 3 Super II's, MIDI, OBEL, Waldo Buffer, etc. Hopefully in a month we'll have her rolling.

Nice! Soloist body or Strat style? What are you doing for neck/fingerboard/frets/nut?

It's a strat body with a rear route instead of a pickguard. Neck is all maple with a vintage tint finish, abalone dot inlays. Jeff is a Strat guy. Electronically, I'll probably do my normal take on the Jerry approach. I won't be doing exactly a copy of a Jerry wiring job, but essentially the same effect, same sounds available for the most part.

3 DiMarzio Super II's
1 global toggle for single/humbucker - handles all 3 pickups at once.
1 OBEL toggle
1 Volume pot - 25k
1 global tone control - 300k pot - .022uF ceramic tone cap
1 MIDI volume control
Roland GK Kit for MIDI pickup and electronics
2 - push buttons to scroll midi up and down
1 normal 5-way strat pickup selector switch
Waldo buffer
