AIRCRAFT/AC-5

owner: Shin

2020.12.17: This is a rare 2-ham version.
The description seems to indicate that it was ordered by the previous owner, and while there is no active circuit, a battery box, arming adjuster and D-tuna have been added.
The bridge is also Floyd original, not Schaller FRT-2 which is often seen, but the model number may be different because the base plate seems to be thicker than the one often seen.
The bridge studs are wood screws because of the thicker top material?
The strap pin is a big one made by GOTOH in recent years, so it seems to have a history of various customizations.
The tap switch hole seems to have been originally fitted with a Japanese pot, and the rear escutcheon has been filled in once, and the front PU is an APH-1B, although it was described as an SH-1B.
The insert block has also been replaced with a titanium one.
Dec. 22, 2020: Maintenance and customization were done.
I changed the escutcheon to black, the PU to a Duncan 59 set, the selector to a 5-way Suhr 2-ham wiring, and the tap switch to tone.
The tone was made for the first time with a low-cut circuit when pulled, which is common on Schecter SDs and other models.
The bridge saddle seems to have been replaced because only the 6th string has a slightly different plating.
The 5th string was also replaced because the saddle itself was broken at the saddle set screw when I was adjusting the octave.
The specs are more like a Les Paul, but I wanted the playability of the arm and the high position, but I also wanted to use the sound of a stratolike tap, and I was selfish.
2022.4.20: I had the frets fretted at the workshop.

sound features

The tapped sound is less powerful than other PUs due to the low output of the 59 set, but I think this is a more satisfying sound for playing with only amp distortion.
