Guitar Care, Repair, Modification & Lutherie / New neck for WM24
« on: January 08, 2013, 10:02:55 AM »
My Renegade's neck has a hump on the top side around the 5th fret and to even get it somewhat playable,  the bottom (high E) side has a full 1/8" dip in the center.  So, it definitely needs a new neck.  Does Washburn sell replacement necks that will work  (i.e. 6 in line, locking nut from this one will fit and same pocket and scale size)??????

Paul Stanley Series (PS & Preacher) / PS600
« on: May 13, 2010, 04:22:55 PM »
I got the silverburst PS600 with Egnator pickups and super nice Paul Stanley gigbag.  All mahogany beast, and the Egnators give it a great sound.  Nice heel and fishhook headstock with body and neck binding.  The semi-circular top cut out does not get in the way.  Too bad he only played these a short while before returning to the PS2000, and the new Flying V that really doesn't look that great to me. (I got a mirror pick guard and truss rod cover for my Gibson V to make it like the one Paul played long ago).  I've seen the short lived PS800 with the PS80/400/600 body shape and PS500/2000 headstock shape---kinda weird.
I have a similar guitar to the Preacher, and it doesn't have the Paul Stanley Star Tailpiece, so I skipped on it in my collection.
My nephew got the PS80 back when MF was putting them out for $99.99 with the bag and studded strap.  He loves it.

Paul Stanley Series (PS & Preacher) / 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]

Hollowbody & Jazz Series / OE40 tone!!
« on: May 13, 2010, 03:55:16 PM »
I got the OE40 several years ago and was impressed by its nice tone.  The looks are great, too with nice abalone/MOP inlays, binding and headstock.  Big J5 type  full hollow body and floating bridge, the gold jazz pickups are great for rocking, too.  Just have to stay back from the amp a ways.   I usually go to the side a bit and come toward the front when I want the feedback.  A real tone monster guitar.
The only full hollow left in my collection.  I sold my Byrdland for a 50% loss,  equal to the cost of 15 of these and they sound about as nice.[:)]
