theGUITARaddict: Guard & gates

Was restless, decided to give this one a makeover:

  • Mint pickguard. Added contrast, together with the burst body, it now has a Strat vibe. Wasn’t going for that but it happened.
  • New pickups: Seymour Duncan Pearly Gates set. Had second thoughts initially knowing how bright the PG could be & my Mira here isn’t a full solid instrument so it might go into treble overkill but it didn’t happen. The PG has good clarity with a rather spongey overall tone, close to what a Custom Custom has to offer.
  • Fresh strings while I’m at it.

    But this is my main highlight for now; the guitar is F-spaced / Trembucker-spaced. We assume guitars with fixed bridge, tune-o-matic, hard tail & other iterations that don’t whammy, to manifest standard spacing instead but this proves otherwise. There shouldn’t be convenient assumptions any more, measure & know your instrument’s features, it doesn’t take much effort.
