My KC100's
« on: July 18, 2008, 10:48:37 PM »
I finally got around to snapping some pics of my KC100's.
Here ya go:

I bought the red one new in 1990 and got the blue one off Ebay last year. The last owner of the blue one painted a gold scorpion and then clear coated the entire body. My luthier buddy is going to clean it up one of these days.

They're nice Panda. So, you're working on the red one?

The red one has been through the wars with me for 18 years. The original electronics eventually wore out and I've had several different combinations in there. The current pair is a Dimarzio Evolution in the bridge and a Dimarzio Fast Track 1 in the neck wired for the lower output option. I used to have a 500XL and a cool rails in there but I moved them over to my Ibanez proline neck through. The volume is a push/pull and is my pickup switcher. I have several guitars run this way with different pickups but the single volume/switch. I seem to like it.

The mini toggles on the blue one are worn out so I need to replace them soon. I don't know if I'll keep them wire that way or just clear everything out and set it up like the red one. Those pickups are the original Seymour Duncans and they still sound pretty good.

thanks guys.

I lucked out on the blue one. It was on Ebay but listed as

 Scorpion Guitar Chicago Series

I was doing a search for Chicago series and found it. I bought it from a Pawn shop in LA.

I emailed the shop and tried to buy it right away but he made me wait and sweat it out. Luckily I was the only one who bid on it. I saw someone named Sinn on here that had a white one but I have to post some more before I can check and see if he wants to sell it.
