|My Guitar Center 20th Anniversary Olympic White American Fender Stratocaster
Guitar Center awarded this to me in honor of 20 years of service.
My name is engraved on the neck back plate on the back of the guitar.
I received this on March 19th. It has great Fender Fat 50s Custom Shop Pickups.
However, all my other guitars have EMG Active Pickups. I am going to put an
EMG 81 double coil active pickup in the bridge postion and two single coil
EMG SA active pickups in my new Strat, plus an EMG PA-2 onboard booster.
|My Guitar Center 20th Anniversary American Standard Fender Stratocaster
With EMG Pickups and a EMG Onboard Booster
|BRIDGE PICKUP - EMG 81 DOUBLE COIL, NECK AND MIDDLE PICKUPS - EMG SA SINGLE COIL
BELOW THE VOLUME CONTROL IS A EMG PA2 ONBOARD BOOSTER SWITCH
WHICH GIVES ME A 20db BOOST
The Stratocaster comes stock with two Tone Controls,
one for the Neck Pickup, one for the Middle Pickup, none for the Bridge Pickup
I had the neck pickup tone control removed and replaced by the switch for
my EMG PA2 Booster. Now my single Tone Control works on all three pickups.
|The EMG PA2 ONBOARD BOOSTER CAN ALSO BE USED
ON GUITARS WITH PASSIVE PICKUPS.
IT GIVES YOU A 20 DB BOOST TO YOUR GUITAR'S SIGNAL TO YOUR AMP.
I USE IT ON ALL MY ELECTRIC GUITARS
|Set Up for our August 28th 2015 Bass Brew And Barbeque Show at Lake Saint Cair Metro Park
My Guitar Center 2015 20th Anniversary Customized Fender American Standard Stratocaster
and my 1983 Roland Customized G505 electric guitar,
two Fender Hot Rod Deluxe Open Back Combo Amps
on top of Fender Hot Rod Deluxe 12" Closed Back Extension Cabinets
These special guitars were made thirty two years apart from each other.
However, they both play and sound great and almost identical to each other..
If one of them breaks a string or has another problem,
I can pick up the other and go on with my show.
In my many years of performing as a professional musician,
I have learned through experience to have two of everything I use
to be prepared to go on with the show if any problems arise.
