PS500
« on: May 13, 2010, 04:09:46 PM »
I love my two PS500s from 1999.  I used MOP sticker markers w/abalone diagonal at the 12th (and used black magic marker on the rosewood) and got the mirror pick guards and truss rod covers.  One I sent to Jeff Kamn and had made into a Black Diamond for $600.  They look like the PS2000 and PS2000CM, now.  Really, the main difference is the Buzz Feiten tuning system is not there but they sound fantastic (they all have the same pickups), and hold tuning well(all have 18-1 Grovers).  The mirror parts came from Kamn, and the sticker inlays from Jocko in Japan on ebay.  The PS500 is an outstanding sounding metal and rock machine!!!! Nice heel on the set neck, too.  Binding is great, too.
I have seen the cheapo PS100 with the same body shape but bolt on unpainted neck, no binding, and open pickups.  The PS2000 is way overpriced for what you get above the PS500. IMHO[8D]

This is a new computer so I will have to take more pictures to upload them here.
Kind of a bummer now that you can get a new PS1800 CM for 995 when I have 1113 into my modded (Kamn broken mirror job) PS500.  It has split abalone/MOP inlays and black TRC and PG instead of mirrored like mine, and the Buzz Feiten tuning system which adds less real value than they usually put it at.
But it won't be long and I'll post pictures of my Paul Stanley Collection and awesome custom straps;  '78 PS10 black, '85 Actives modded, Rhinestoned, Kahler Iceman 350 (similar to his Rhinestoned PS10, but not 'official'), a 2007 black mirrored and Rhinestoned Gibson Flying V (ala 1976, unofficial), 1999 PS500/2000B, 1999 PS 500/2000CM, 2004 Silvertone Sovereign Pro w/SD JB bridge, 2005 Silvertone Sovereign Special w/silver paint, Imperials, Graphtech nut, glued in neck, Silverburst PS400 with Egnators, and a Preacher/Ravelle style in blue with hand wound pus (also not official'). 9 guitars inspired by one guy!!  I also have a 2002 Ace Frehley LP signature Custom LP Flame cherry burst, with DP100, HfH middle, and Fred neck, dual coil split neck and bridge with phase reverse pull neck, middle volume and master tone.  I have a 2003 LPC ZW Camo, a honeyburst Brian May, 50th Ann. Strat and EMG-ZW strat, and Voodoo reverse/reverse Carvin Bolt-T as inpired by the JH strat, Tony Iommi Epi SG, Dimebag inspired Dean ML with black bullseye on tranparent wine, abalone dots, Dimebucker and GFS Loudmouth w/coil split and compressor/limiter mod board, and a Flip Pearl neck thru Vendetta 3 from hell with razor wire fretboard inlays, lightning bolts, and bridge BL500XL with coil split.  Used to have a Gib Byrdland (Ted Nugent) that sold for half cost to fix wife's teeth.  Washburns?:  OE-40 (poor man's L5 like Gary Duncan loved), the 3 PS ones, WI14, WM24V, that's 6.  I've got 4 Gibsons, 3 Deans, 3 Jay Tursers, 2-Epiphones, 2 Ibanez, 2-Hagstroms and 2-Fenders.  Also 3 cumulative from Rondo--Agile Hornet, SX CUS 22, and Douglas WML590 neck through.  All nice guitars, more too--- a Johnson modded twin blade bridge 5 way tele, the VooDoo Carvin (modded kit), and home made textured alder Blackbird 3 pu 'studio' Firebird (w/reverse headstock, or actually normal w/custom paint),  home made HH w/Hofner whammy telecaster of lammed oak and poplar, and a completed neck through graphtech custom tune-o-matic, rosewood lumberbuckers SG, inlaid by Antoniosai, (neck walnut(3) mahogany(2), body wings rosewood top ash bottom, alder middle, rosewood extreme flower vine inlays in abalone real MOP and on body, chrome hardware, abalone topped knobs, Imperials, bone nut, jumbo SS frets. Pictures coming soon!!  Amps;  5W Class A Boutique, 10 watt solid state Brian May(8-drives more), 15 watt class A Tiny Terror, 15 watt ss Marshall mini stack ZW(2-1x10, but will drive full stack), 50 watt hybrid(VOX)1x12, 50 watt class AB(Crate),60 watt ss(Roland Cube 1x12), 100 watt class A to AB(Peavey Windsor, extreme loudness), 100 watt ss(Carvin SX300), 120 watt Behringer V-Amp ss(stereo on full stack), 150 watt Crate ss Amp Block(drives Kustom PA speakers for guitar, bass, keys, or vocals), 200 watt ss(Peavey TNT, 1x15& horn, keyboard, bass, vocals).
