    Here is pic of the frequency response of the stock pickups in the Charvel Avenger.
    This was done before I took the Avenger apart.
    I sampled them in the three switch positions.
    I used the Signal Scope app for i-phone for the test.
    The guitar was plugged straight into a Roland Cube 40XL amplifier set on the clean channel, with all the effects turned off, the guitar volume at full, and the amp volume at 5. I played an E5 Chord for the ...

    So....today is the day!

    Before I took the Avenger apart I sampled the frequency response of the stock pickups using the Signal Scope Application available for i-phone.
    I will compare the frequency response of the stock pick ups to the performance of the new pick ups when replaced, and the project is complete.
    I saved all of the original parts for reuse if needed.
    It was easy to take it apart, I am sure it will be more difficult

    While I was trying to figure out what I would do with the 3A, I tore it down with the intent to clean it and figure out what would stay and what would go. The inventory of what I had:

    Neck - needed a level and crown and had a chip in the headstock. The original truss rod cover had been lost and replaced with what looked like a cut down Epiphone TRC. The fretboard cleaned up with a rag and some bore oil. Looked OK - worn, sure - but I like that in a nice rosewood board.

  5. Charvel Model 3A - Resto-Mod!

    I posted some in progress shots before, and then some finished shots, but I figured I might try this blog thing and post the whole thing again.

    I got this for a song during the end of the summer of 2010 - up in Kingston, NY. $200 with a crummy chainsaw case. I figured it would be worth it just for the Floyd.

    So this started off as a Charvel Model 3A, black with a Floyd Rose replacing the stock trem and a J-50N in the neck instead of the stock J-80NC. It had been ...
