'62 Amebin body replaced with '57 HotRod
It was originally a '62 Amebin that I bought new in 1990 at THE Kanda Shokai music store in Japan, but when I replaced the PU with an SCN that I bought on eBay this spring, I found that the zakuri on the body was not enough for a two-story single hum. The lacquer paint had turned yellow and I thought a sunburst would look better on a tortoiseshell PG. I had been looking for a suitable guitar for a while and found a super light '57 vintage hot rod with 2T sunburst body on eBay! The 57 Hot Rod has a deep pickup cavity in the body due to the SCN front and middle PUs.
The original white body was also made of alder, but it was quite heavy compared to the other JB model I own. I thought the sound of the original body was better, but I am now looking at it to see if it is too much to compare a new body with a body that has been played for 20 years. I am now looking at it. It used to have a distinctive midrange, but now it has lost it and I feel that the low end of the 6th string is too much.
