Re: Pickguard for LS1

Well, my specs differ...thus my questions.
I checked my serial number again, it's a 2011.

Re: Pickguard for LS1

Got the pickguard from Gottfried. Anybody know the exact specs of a LS1-R9 from 2010? Did those already have CTS pots? Mine has Alphas... other specs: solid flame maple top, 1-piece body, fret-edge-binding, no pick guard/ holes from factory, no open book headstock. No version number to see anywhere....

Pickguard for LS1

Hi!

Can I buy a pick guard for my LS1-R9 anywhere (came without one, even has no holes yet)? I tried a Gibson Historic one, but that doesn't fit right...
Germany/Europe preferred.

Thanx,
Peter

I LOVE them. They need no polishing, they last forever and feel fantastic for bending (and in general). YMMV.

I may have a '81 LS120 for sale when the price is right...
Very good condition, changed tuners and caps (originals still there), refret with 6150 stainless steel (by master luthier Joerg Tandler) last year. Original case.

Yes, looks fishy to me, too.
And too expensive.

Maybe mine came out of an 1800 and were custom ordered with the PG mod? Just speculating, they look absolutely untouched...
I think I'll use them like they are, the middle position is SOOO versatile, just got to get used to it...

I checked again. The magnets are oriented the same way on both PUPS (N on the screw side), so it seems one is wired reverse or the braided wire is installed out of phase...

Did some sets of DRY-Zs come out-of-phase from the factory?
My set is, and it looks original and untouched...

Can anybody with Zs check polarity for me? N or S up?
Thanx!

Are the Dry-Zs different neck and bridge?
Or do I just put the hotter one at the bridge?

Thanx,

Extend braided wire?

Hi!

I just got two Dry-Z PUPs, but the wire from the neck PUP ist too short for my '81 LS120 (AFAIR Greco had the routing different?). How do I best extend the wire? Solder a piece of shielded wire on it and use heat shrink tubing on the connection?

Thanx,

Interestingly Jacaranda is NOT Brazilian Rosewood (and not under CITES?), Dalbergia Nigra is.
