    Thanks!

    Just a secondhand old SE! Apparently the crosshatching isn’t generally thought of as desirable in flame tops, but I think it’s cool here.

    The grain lines in contrast with the figuring is stunning!

    Tuners: Gotoh SG38-MGT (Black)
    Bridge: Gotoh 510UB (Black)
    Pickup rings: Anomaly Guitar classic tapered surrounds
    Switch tip: black, generic

    I also used a razor blade and an emery board to gently roll the fretboard edges - it's made quite a big difference to how the neck feels. The Gotoh parts dropped straight in - I didn't bother swapping the stud bushings and it's rock solid.

    Put in a new wiring harness from Jackson Electronic Luthiers in to the Custom 24. Rand does really nice work, and will talk you ear off if you let him. I like how things sound through most of the effects i use on the Neck VB p/u on split and full bucker. However, the Brodge HFS p/u only sounds good on split. On full bucker it is losing clarity and is weak.

    That being said, i sprung for a like new set of 8515S's. I'm hoping this should resolve my tonal differances

    SE 8515's have been onboarded into the Custom 24.:D:D:D:D:D

    Its like having a NGD! These pickups are sooooo much better that the SE VB and HFS that I pulled out. Louder, cleaner, full of tones I couldn't hear before. So, what I have now is:

    2015 30th Anniversary Custom 24 SE (MIK)
    JEL wiring harness with .022 Vitamin Q Capacitor, CTS 525K Short Shaft Pot (Vol), Switchcraft 3 way blade switch, Bourns Push/Pull Tone Pot. (5% tolerance build)
    2018 SE 8515 Bridge and Neck Pickups.
    Ernie Ball Paradigm 9-42's

    everything else is still stock.

    Just finished installing a nickel dimarzio 36th anniversary neck and black dimarzio fortitude bridge in my SE Zach Myers! Along with a fresh setup it sounds so much better now!
