My Sheraton from Japan came with some mystery pu maybe Maxon brand; brass cover and plate with and Alnico magnet. Sounded like all the terms we call bad pickups. Muddy, compressed, shrill highs, etc.

the bridge read 14.8k and the Neck was 7.26. I change the magnets to ceramic and for some reason they both now read 7.8? I lost track of which was which when putting on the cover.

now they’re back in and sound clear as a bell!

5A98043A-28B1-4B13-A41D-53ADEF1FB35B.jpeg Put the Gibson 61 pickups that were in my Gibson 60’s standard into my Epiphone Silverburst. I have a new favourite guitar!

edit- I didn’t put them in, I paid to have them put in. I’m not a good at soldering… and have zero clue on how to wire them.

Taking my Casino to my friends house to play it on his Seymour amp, it has a feature where you can select the wattage. He doesn't particularly like that amp but it gets louder than mine... I think.
Like going over to a buddy's house to play Atari or Nintendo. The more things change....

Hopefully things quiet down a bit for the holiday season and can get back to modding guitars/ making videos. Was just able to play a bit in the office during breaks in between. This one's got a pair of guitarfetish pickups from back in the day when I still lived in the states.

That looks pretty stunning. What is this model of Sheraton that has/had the trapeze tail piece and the full sized humbuckers?

Terada Japan in the late 80’s right before the Sheraton II became a thing. For what i can tell it’s also not a veneer
