I put an 82 OBL into an R8 VOS recently btw. Is this the same Bill Lawrence? Not really sure what the deal with OBL is. Pretty sure that was Bill's company at a time but i guess no longer. I'm using http://www.billlawrence.com pickups. Could you please put some sound/details onto youtube? I have no...

Well i finally had some time to get it done today. The results are just incredible. Really happy with the versatility i get with the push/pull pot. I can get anything from stratish tones to tele type tones to full on balls to the wall. Here are some pics. Please forgive the quality. I really need to...

well i was not able to spend as much time as i wanted with the guitar yesterday. Wife had me running around most of the day. I managed to get the Grovers installed last night though! I used a tapered reamer to enlarge to holes and it worked great. You can see the top holes from the original Gotoh tu...

Keep in mind i'm using the pickups from Bill and Becky Lawrence, not the "Bill Lawren...

Rainy day... let the upgrades begin!

Posted this on the MLP Forum and thought i should share it here as well. Well today i will be spending some time with my Tokai LS-85Q and i'm going to upgrade a few things. First off, let me say that the stock parts i'm replacing arent bad at all. In fact i am quite impressed with the Tokai pickups....

Okay, took it to my local guitar guy and he's got her playing great! The roller bridge worked nice but i wanted the original bridge on there so he worked it out. He also reworked the nut a bit and it now plays better than i could have imagined. As far as price.....i paid a little too much i think. $...

They do look lovely..but I played one a little while back and found the poly finish unbelievably thick...so much so that I had to stop playing it. The poly on the neck would grab and slow you down and the same for the poly on the upper bout. Maybe it was a one off blunder ...how do you find yours? ...

Thanks! I have not had time to really sit down with her yet but so far i am really impressed with the quality. I have owned several Gibsons over the years as well as a couple of nice Greco Lp's. This is easily up there at the top. Neck is perfect for me. It's right between 50's rounded and a 60's sl...

WOOO HOOO! Luv my love rock

This arrived at my house yesterday. '03 LS-85Q Oak. It's like new with plastic still on the pickups and on the cavity covers as well. It's a dream to play. I had seen these around for a while and i had to have this color! Really impressed overall. http://i383.photobucket.com/albums/oo278/pimphat/tok...
