For Pierre Journel
Published on 2013-10-7
Having received from a pair of Seymour Duncan humbuckers Whole Lotta to test, I thought it would be a good way to do this test even if these pickups are for a Les Paul type guitar.
The specs of Whole Lotta indicates a level of output rather vintage, gold, if I remember correctly, the first incarnations of Frankenstrat of Uncle Eddie was equipped with a micro Gibson recovered from a 335 ES.
So, it remains to record a soundseeing of the beast once I get acquainted with it!
The partners involved in this project:
+ EG Solidbody who made the beautiful ash body and provides the neck and tuning machines
+ Hantug for vibrato vintage style
+ Seymour Duncan humbucker for Whole Lotta
+ Patrick Querleux for everything else (paint, varnish, setup)
For your information here is the complete budget for this kind of instrument:
€ 86 two-piece ash body (EG solidbody)
€ 44 Vibrato Vintage 6 Screw
€ 169 Neck (EG solidbody)
€ 35 Gotoh (EG solidbody)
€ 150 Humbucker (depending on the selected pickup)
€ 600 Paint, varnish, setup by Patrick Querleux (including cover plate, screws, etc..)
Approximately € 1,084
This is the end of part 1 with the delivery of this guitar. There will be more adventures with the Frankenstrat, we'll talk soon.
