RY Guitar/Jazzmaster Type FRT
2021.4.30: I was looking for a spec like the AC-6 that is easy to use for everyday use, and I found that Warmoth can make a Jazzmouth type that is pretty close.
The AC-6 is based on the JAGUAR, so the slide switch and some of the panels are separated, but this is a Jazzmouth, so most of the wiring work can be completed with a single pickguard, and the controls are simple.
The jacks are on the side, so one of the jack holes on the front side is a tap switch, and the original PU selector position is a kill switch that turns off the sound only while the switch is held down.
I put a high-pass capacitor in the vol.
Other than the controls and PG, the AC-6 does not have the following features: no bridge recess, 22-fret maple fretboard, bush neck joint, ash body, and for the first time, I had the top finished in gloss and the side backs in satin.
You can see the bumps on the paint border by touch, but basically it doesn't bother me.
The color order was based on the image of the more flashy PRS Bonnie Pink, but the random quilts were a little too subtle this time, so I had it painted with an emphasis on the grain, resulting in a pink with a slightly dull look.
The result is a pink with a slightly dull look. It is similar to the pink of the Ken model.
I am very grateful to the maker for responding to my request, as it was the first time for me to ask for something like this, and it was filled with more elements than last time that would not have been made commercially.
2022.3.6: I changed the pickguard to pearl white for a change.
The controls are more Jaguar-like than last time, and the Vol knob is now closer to the Strat.
The effect of the front and rear PUs and the three mini-switches are exactly the same as AC6, so you won't be confused when you change the guitar.
The kill switch is now located away from the jack hole, but it is easier to operate than I thought it would be.
2022.10.23: I made chrome parts to make it closer to AC-6.
I changed the PU to a BKP True Grid set and removed the high-pass capacitor.
I like the original black parts and black bobbin open hum, so I will change it again at the next string change.
2023.3: I changed the PU to a JB front and rear set, changed the metal parts back to black, and lowered it a semitone.
USA production → Japan incorporation
The True Grid set has a very mild sound, and in a way I thought it would be a very good choice if the concept is to jazz up the guitar with a Les Paul, but it is not the specs of this guitar, so I think a power DiMaggio or Duncan would fit the concept.
