u have mail...


Recieved a mail today that the next tone monster is on its way over the Atlantic.

There are a few decisions that have to be made with regards the body...paint, acrylic, nitro or stain?
Then we have the one pot or two pot set up, 250,500 or 1 meg pots, no load pot on the tone would be nice..

Tv jones Powertron...bridge plus or not? 4 conductor or not? short pole or not?
Then the bridge....406 pole to pole, .425 pole to pole, E to E , standard or vintage.. 3 brass barrels or 6 saddles ..3 or 4 screw
Its got a hot dog route in the rear so I'll have to drill 1 or 2 holes for the pots...
Then we can have Gretsch style arrow knobs...or..

Questions questions...

Most importantly the enck is aligned with the body..as its a fat back C shape (Tone Monster neck) I figured I wanted some HD sperzels which I already have in the bag..10mm and vintage quality from z germans..

The neck is fitted with a bone nut which is one less headache...I reckon it would look good with three barrel string saddles on a chrome deck..which I could cut back to make more space on the deck..no plastic on the deck, gonna be clean lines. maybe 1 knob would be enough, you dont get any simpler and you can use the volume to darken the tone which I feel is a positive if faced with 1 knob.

Anyway, pics on the way once the parcel arrives. Gotta pack up The Paul to send off to find out if the guy wants to swap it for the Charvel.
