I used the CGG to create the image of what it should look like when it's done. I've included 2 images of what I am starting with, as for hardware.. I stripped all the factory components. I'll be sending this to a luthier and having the factory finish stripped from the head stock and body. Once that is done I need to make a choice, keep this neck or find a 22 fret bound with sharkfins. New hardware , Custom Floyd Rose (Gold) , Grover Mini Roto-Grip Locking Rotomatics (505 Series) (Gold) , EMG 57/66
This thing likes to change color on me. If I get pictures that show a drasticly new color, I will post them here. Mainly so I have them all in one spot instead of always hunting them down as I need them.
Didn't make any entries until I resolved that last post, which was to start designing and building the next step, the 30 watt.
I built one, sent it to a famous pickup maker, and we both decided we didn't like the result.
He owns a 7 watt and loves it.
So I got it back and stripped out to start over.
In the meantime I was able to do a similar build into a Fender 75 chassis, with channel switching via a couple of XLR cables.
Passive, but quiet.
The gain channel
Here is the bridge from the Avenger. It is a JT-580 Takeuchi.
It is a full double locking bridge, stamped Charvel, that was used on some Charvette guitars from the same time.
Most Avenger guitars have the single locking JT-570 bridge.
The bridge is similar to the JT-580 used on some Jackson guitars, but made in Japan. Everything is original and seems to work well. I will make sure all the parts work correctly and put it back together.
