Thread: Dsc-1

    Dsc-1

    Oops. Ordered 2 kits today. Mostly for the summer holiday break.

    I don't know if I will update every step of the way (I kind of faded into obscurity with my ES-1GT) but putting this up here in case I find the enthusiasm for posting the process. No doubt I will need some help from the veterans!

    Sharing is caring, looking forward seeing what you come up with! Any upgrades planned?

    Cheers

    I am thinking the pickups rings (I hate that standard colour!) and perhaps any of the other plastic (knobs, covers and pickguard). Not sure on the colour yet but I am leaning towards a white body.

    I'll consider some new pickups too as I'm thinking of making this my 'main' guitar.. not that I'm playing in a band currently but for rocking out in the spare room anyway.

    I am considering going for some Seymour Duncan Phat Cats for this one. Anyone have experience with these in the past? Any little secrets I should consider being going down this path?

    I don't, but I'll certainly be interested in your experience if you do go with those SDs. My next project is a tele with humbucker routes, so I'm thinking something like the Phat Cats might be the go. Prolly not the SDs one - they're a bit exy ;-)

    A set of Tonerider Rebel 90's would cost less than half the price of the SD's. I haven't played the Rebel 90's, but I've been pretty impressed with their other offerings so far.

    Interesting. I'm going to do some reading!

    Yes, I've been thinking about those. On guitar like Glen's DSC-1, do you think it'll look odd with nickel pickup covers and chrome stop bar and bridge?

    In the past I've bought Tonerider humbuckers without covers, and separate after- after-market chrome covers, but that's not se easy for these pickups.

    Looking at the neck fit this morning while I was doing a little sanding.. not perfect. I am happy with the top but the bottom needs some work.
