Re: New Custom Angelus!

Dude you really must have a dodgy BKP, they shit on EMG's for gain, I have a warpig and some 81 & 85 equipped banjos and the BK win hands down for gain AND low end, I never liked the low end on EMG's sounded too compressed and not enough oomph if that makes sense :-D He must just be describing what...

Re: New Custom Angelus!

Mixing actives and passives isn't generally a great idea. Why don't you try something passive in the bridge? You have EMG's in all of your guitars already don't you? Try something unique like a Suhr Aldrich, BKP, Seymour Duncan can custom make you any kind of pickup you want, Anderson H2+ or H3, et...

Re: New Custom Angelus!

maybe HS config. spot on! maybe HS config. From what I've seen and heard of Jona's bands, he has no use for a neck pickup so that's why I said just a bridge pickup. I'm surprised Peter Wichers never had any single pickup custom models since he said he never uses a neck pickup. I always found that o...

still discussing the finer details. all i can say is its a colour never done before on an angelus, pickup configuration never done before on an angelus and neck wood never done before on an angelus (that last one's a dead give away haha)

Re: New Caparison "Custom Line" Horus and Dellinger

This just makes me wonder why Itaru said in the past that the Horus and Dellinger couldn't have figured maple tops because the bodies were too thin or whatever? That never made any sense at all to me. id say it would have been all about getting the sound right. Itaru is more concerned with sound th...

New Custom Angelus! EDIT: now with pics

ok added some pics guys. this guitar is a beauty! the colour is a little different from the mockup i sent Itaru, however i asked for it to be different from the new blue horus and dellingers so this angelus is actually slightly darker than those and slightly lighter than the old angelus hgs seethrou...

Re: is caparison.....

The problem would be, as much as everything is made by the same people, by hand so to say.. the reason a "open" custom shop wouldnt work is because they do all aspects of production in monthly batches. And keep in mind 98% of what id made is for dealer pre orders.. Example, one month would be just ...

he is for sure, i saw blueprints for a strat style guitar when i was there. looked like a plm with 3 single coils and a big scratchplate like a regular strat, sameish headstock as a plm. i just dont know when all this stuff is meant to be out. seems like theyre lagging a fair bit

Re: Adam D's custom Cap pic

I can't see the pickups, bridge, or the controls. What are the specs on it? Flat black Dellinger with EMG's and a fixed bridge I'm guessing? i dont have specs, or any more pics but what i can tell you is its not a dellinger. its a brand new body shape made for adam d. it has bevelled edges (sort of...

Hey guys, im in Gothenburg at the moment recording at Studio Fredman. tonight i went down to the Hard Rock and snapped a couple of pics of IA's old applehorn. the guitar looked a bit battered, rusty and covered in dust and was tucked away in a little corner almost behind a bar. still awesome! incide...
