They would look great sisde by side.
Mike could play it for MLC gigs. Or is it exclusive to TriC ?
Bridge on is a great idea.


This is just for the Tri-Chevys.
But I like your idea!
Reverse the colors and make it an HH instead of an SSS. :)

Apparently that Black and White came with a badge. :lol: I see you're a Moderator now. Nice new Patrol Guitar. :D
It's actually nice to see the occasional solid color paint job. I 'think' :think: that"s the first 'Triple Single' I've seen.
Enjoy!

Matt, so funny how great minds copy each other. Or did I screw up the quote? I was just in Escondido and ordered my first Aries. Without the bevels.

Gotta love Flock.

That has to be the classiest use of the Aries bevel ever.

Re: anchoring the picking hand on a hipshot bridge, the way I do it is just like I was playing some palm muted chugs, except a hair further back so that I'm not actually touching the string (and of course, when I'm palm muting, I anchor right where the string meets the saddle like I do on any other bridge).

Dare I say that you won't be seeing me do any pickup swaps in this guitar? :lol:


Yeah, that just wouldn't be me at all. Last night I had to try a Carvin twinblade in the bridge position.
And I love it.

I've also installed a push-pull pot for the tone control in order to include a bridge-add switch. Love that too!

ElfDude wrote:I really love AP11s, so I've been really curious about these Lithium single coils. Some have said that they don't like the AP11s very much as far as single coils go because they're too meaty. I remember someone saying he thought the AP11s were more like P-90s than Strat pickups. Well, the Lithiums address this. They sound fantastic, but are definitely more Stratty than the Bolt with AP11s. The AP11s are just a hair louder as well, but the Lithiums still have plenty of output.


Agree on the pickups. Nice guitar!!

Less than a year later we've done a lot of gigs together! It's been wonderful! Still totally digging this guitar!

We do a Hound Dog medley in C. Probably that.
