RY Guitar/Curved Top Dinky Type
2020.10.27: When I went to the workshop to pick up the Telecas that I ordered, I was shown the body and neck that were in stock.
It is a rare body made of 1P swamp ash, which is quite light for the top and back respectively.
The neck is the same spec except for the semi-hollow tele.
The body is painted in satin poly so that the conduit of the body can be seen.
The selector is almost the same effect as Suhr's 2H5way, and I put a high-pass capacitor on Vol as a test for a long time.
It is very light and the stability of arming and tuning with the locking pegs and VS100N makes for stress-free playability.
2020.12.7: I replaced the PU with a DiMarzio covered one.
When I was building this guitar, I decided on the color and parts based on the prototype MG-M that Matsumoto of B'z used in the early 90's. I happened to be able to find a used set of these PUs, but the bobbin was white, so I used a covered one.
I was surprised to find that the pitch of the genuine DiMarzio cover I bought for the front normal pitch did not match.
The Duncan cover that I happened to have was a perfect fit and I managed to make both the front and rear covered.
I think it would have been better to use black, zebra open, or bare knuckle camouflage pattern...
I didn't change the grease on the Vol pots when I assembled them last time, so I removed the high pass capacitor while I was doing it this time.
2021.2.24: I changed the PU back to the Duncan set that was installed when I built it.
