odd WI-64DL
« on: March 09, 2012, 09:30:49 PM »
well i think its a wi-64, bought it from a pawn shop about 2 years ago and it just doesnt look like any of the others out there the logo the lettering on the headstock and the body lines are kinda different. i changed the bridge pickup to a bill lawrence USA L500XL, it plays awsome with very low action couldnt be any happier with it, but anyways heres some pictures lmk if you need better ones.

also there was a made in korea sticker on the back of the headstock. took the whole guitar apart and no sign of any numbers anywhere. i,ve looked through a lot of pictures on google and havent found anything that looks similar.

I can't help you with the model unfortunately,but I was wondering about the bridge pickup. Is it a Bill lawrence l500xl from Bill and Becky lawrence or from the other company that owns the Bill Lawrence name but doesn't actually have anything to do with Bill Lawrence himself?
I just got a pair of these pickups from Bill and Becky Lawrence for my wi45 and I've sent it in to a shop to have proper tone pots with push pull coil taps fitted,I'm seriously looking forward to playing it when it comes back.
The pickups that Bill makes himself are really sweet sounding,but I have no experience of the others so I would be interested in your opinion.

Thats interesting,my pickups don't have any rubber on them. The pickups Bill and Becky make are called wilde bill pickups and cost the exact same as the other ones and they are both made to Bill Lawrences design but the Bill and Becky ones win hands down in every review I've read.

not sure if its actual rubber but its the crap they use to hold the 2 coils together and theres big chunks falling off it. I can get a good close up picture in a minute to show you what im talking about. im probly gonna run to the store to find something to fill it in make it look pretty again lol

yea hands down who ever reads this go for the bill and becky ones better quality and overall better sound.
