  1. Would this pickup arrangement work?

    Perhaps for elegance and aesthetics' sake, something like [url="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UuhlWTD1htQ"]THIS[/url] from Haeussel...
  2. How to treat Purple Heart fingerboards

    I wouldn't personally use linseed oil as its job is to seal and preserve wood - unless of course that's what you're looking to do - lemon oil (or similar) will do a better job of conditioning, although you will need to re-apply as required...
  3. JB pickup with S'Ray preamp

    Not had any experience of such a setup, but absolutely no reason why it couldn't be done... i imagine soundwise there'd be less of a mid-punch than the average MM pickup, but it's all still pickups and preamp at the end of the day...

    [quote name='scrumpymike' timestamp='1502474110' post='3351755'] Maybe they all get shipped to Adrian in Germany for their final quality check/set-up. [/quote] That's pretty much what I believe happens...

    [quote name='Wilco' timestamp='1502046229' post='3348974'] I know this thread has a crazy amount of posts, but I couldn't find a specific Maruszczyk thread in the gear porn forum so I started one. [/quote] Bravo! I shall post pics of mine there as soon as it turns up

    Thank you! The crazy thing is... I knocked up a photoshop of what I wanted it to look like, based on the top wood choices Adrian gave me... And they've only gone and nailed it perfectly. I'm seriously impressed...

    On its way to me soon! Can't wait

  9. Feedback for peamann

    Sold a G&l Tribute L2500 to Joe. Nice chap and a pleasure to do business with. Much appreciated.
  10. G&L Tribute L2500 - SOLD - please close

    SOLD!
  11. Price £350 (not looking for trades at the moment, thanks) - cash or bank transfer G&L Tribute L2500 - Swamp Ash body with natural gloss finish and maple board. Purchased new direct from uk supplier in 2007 and has spent most of its life at home. Apart from some slight marking on the headstock end and around the trussrod adjustment area and slight swirling in the finish in some areas, this is in excellent condition. One of the last run of Korean instruments before production moved to Indonesia - has the updated white G&L logo with the older style 'Tribute' stamped bridge. These are from the same Cort factory that produces the Skylines for Lakland, so is as sturdy and playable as they come... 34" scale nut width - 45mm string spacing at bridge - 17.5mm 21 frets Maple neck and fingerboard- modern C shape - uniform thickness from nut to body joint of about 22mm - so looks chunky but very comfortable to play Twin G&L MFD humbuckers in modern location - with pickup selector switch/ series parallel switch/ passive;active;active w/ treble boost switch - treble cut/ bass cut and overall volume control Weight - around 4.5kg/ 10lbs Any questions (or anything I've missed) - please ask away... Collection only at the moment - I'm based in Gravesend in Kent, but travel to London Bridge area daily for work.

    [quote name='BassApprentice' timestamp='1496305528' post='3310299'] That sounds like a belter of a build! Looking forward to seeing the finished product, and also how it sounds regarding the G&L comparison. [/quote] Honestly, not expecting much similarities in sound. I'm more after the flexibility in tone that I'm used to with my G&Ls...
