Blacktop Jaguar that has been modded quite a bit. GFS Teisco styled tail piece, GFS Surf 90s and a kill switch have been added so far.


How's that trem working out for you? Wondered about those for a while, given the super cheap price. Can you compare the trem action to a Bigsby or Jazzmaster trem?

So it qualifies as a beater, right? Sorry about the double post btw, I just poluted the "show your guitar" thread with this pic...

Dude I would rock that as a main guitar in a heartbeat. For real. That thing looks sick. If you ever want to get rid of it I've got a strat and a fuzz I'd trade for it.


Thanks. Looks nice, sounds good, plays smooth. Low action, comfy neck. I'm a total fender guy though, I'd definatelly trade it for a strat if that were at all possible. I'm in Europe though, I'm guessing the s&h would ruin the deal for the both of us:s


I'm willing to investigate, but you're probably right.

Confusingly filed with Strat-styled trems instead of their faux Bigsbys: http://www.guitarfetish.com/Vintage-Sty ... p_839.html

beaters by Pumpkin Pieces, on Flickr

70s Epiphone Crestwood and 2006? MIM tele. Hard to tell what guitars are beaters since I play them all pretty hard, my mustang is the only one I baby.

I'm really not a trem user, and only really got it cus it was a cheap, easy option to get behind the bridge overtones and all that. :lol: I took the trem off completely after a couple months of having the tailpiece on there cus it just got in my way and made it a bit of a challenge to throw in a bag and go somewhere with it. But yeah, I can't really offer up any opinions on how the trem actually feels. Only thing I can say about it is that after adjusting the two screws on the sides that it stayed in tune pretty well after being in a gig bag + being taken somewhere.

Yeah, as someone else said, it's pretty confusing where it is on the site. Luckily I found that before they started doing their Bigsby copies or I most likely would have never found it. :lol:

The Epiphone looks cook. Especially since I'm so used to seeing that body style with the headstocks with all of the tuning keys on one side.

And I'm the same with the beaters thing. I've played all of the guitars that I've owned pretty hard and haven't been afraid to mod regardless of which guitar it is/was. :idk:

Yeah, those trems are...

cheap.

I wouldn't really recommend them for heavy use. They feel cheap too. Fine on an old Japanese guitar, but I wouldn't wanna put in anywhere else. (TWSS)

As SFT describes, it is what it is and it's good for that and not much more.

In regards to the tele...did you just break your A, or are you doing something interesting there?

Definitely. If I was a trem user, I'd have just waited to get a bigsby or a jag/jazzy trem on it. It works well for behind the bridge notes + the harmonics that go along with them and while it stayed in tune during transport while trem was still on it, it almost definitely wouldn't hold up to any real trem work.

Initially I did just break my A, but I did write a song on it without it! Whenever I break the A string I always have fun playing without it.
