    Wow! That really came out beautifully. No chipping that I can spot around the rout!

    I don't know how they'd work on an RC-4 kit, but they are no taller than my Fender bridges. I have one for a P-bass and one for a Jazz. No excavating was necessary ;-)

    I have only seen them from...

    Yup. Born in Washington State in the Pacific Northwest. The joke around my house is that was actually born farther from Miami than my wife who was born in Bogota Colombia

    I have a set of Gotoh Res-o-lites in one of my basses. They are really great tuners.

    For the bridge, if you are going high-mass, I have a couple of Sung Il BB404 bridges that I really like.

    From the pic I thought it was one piece. No one will know it's not unless you tell them ;-) BTW I meant that poplar looks pretty good with dark finishes, not dark green finishes. Stained dark it can...

    I had forgotten that the cavity's not routed on these. That would make Simon's original suggestion pretty attractive...

    Fender has used poplar for a long time. I have a body from Warmoth from the '80s made of it as well. McCreed's body is sort of an ideal piece. Lots of nice grain with nothing you wouldn't want to...

    Of course one of these would also solve the problem of what to do with the switch, but it seems like a lot of $$$ to not have a switch ;-)

    The first bass in this review will give you an idea of the single coil sound. YMMV ;-)

    Ha! Well some of us start at a point well behind those who've gotten it in TAFE. I personally had to look up what TAFE is.

    The lovely thing about Simon's and McCreed's explanations is that they...

    It will work with a single coil. That's what the Broadcasters had, one single coil.

    G&L had a similar cap in their basses, referred to by aficionados as the "OMG cap" because it makes them really...

    I just checked. I have two hard-tail strat bridges, both 52.5mm I didn't even know they came in larger sizes.

    This will certainly show my ignorance. The only guitar I have ever had with a trem is an ancient Fender Coronado, which would go out of tune if you gave it a hard look. That one I replaced with a...

    Funny how things work. You didn't think you needed another Strat. I didn't really think I needed any Strat. I went so far as to put a hard tail and Tele electronics in my one-and-only Strat body. I...

    If you are looking for a classic tone, the EMG Geezer Butlers are hard to beat and should be priced comparably to the DM. If you want a bit higher output and more like a quarter pounder, I am really...

    Nice to "see" you Jim. Love the colors. They are a "nice pair". Hope no one will be so crass as to suggest that your next project should be to make a "nice rack" for them ;-)

    I like my MFD pickups, but they are on a bass. They came stock with PTB tone controls. They are a bit too bright *and* a bit too bottom heavy on their own, but sound best in pretty much every setting...
