AIRCRAFT - AC-5

owner: Shin

2018.11.30: I received it on a good rod day, which is a very wordy day. w
I've been looking for a black parts, maple fretboard, no bridge recess processing, switcheroo style selector, and a strange thickness of the top wood for a long time. I've been looking for a guitar with black parts, maple fretboard, no bridge recess processing, switcheroo style selector, and a strange thickness of the top wood, and I've found them when they were not available at all or when I couldn't make a budget.
This one I got this time has been used a lot and the paint on the neck is very damaged.
It's not a battery box and the studs are wood screws, so I'm pretty sure it's from the early 90's or earlier.
2018.12.4: I was able to transplant Schaller's FRT from FR-85QC to the proper sine height, so it seems that the Floyd original was still a replacement.
I also replaced the knobs with black metal knobs that I have.
2018.12.15: Replaced the rear PU with a genuine Sadowsky made by Dimarzio -> DP155 F-spaced The Tone Zone and the knob with a black SCUD short metal knob.
2019.2: The sustain block size was 37mm, which was a very narrow sagging, so I replaced it with a thicker brass 42mm while making the change.
The sound became quite metallic, but it definitely extended the sound.
July 2019: The edge of the fretboard had been cut off in a very caressing manner, so I had it replaced at the workshop because it had always felt difficult to play.
I had them touch up the paint and rewire it.
You can probably find the article if you look it up.
2019.9.14: It was explained to me that the pegs had deteriorated and had been replaced before during the last repair, so I replaced them with rotomatic type and the strings are now easier to wind.
It is now complete.
2021.12.31: The wiring pattern was changed to match the magnetic pole compatibility with the EMG when the rear PU was tapped.
