Thank you to Chris for putting up with all my questions and helping on the option 50.

Can't get the pics to rotate for some reason...

I got the thick neck with satin finish, stainless med jumbo frets, and locking tuners. The rest of the options you can pretty much see, including the option 50 - side input jack. The guitar plays great and sounds great. Not completely sold on the pickups yet. Don't really care for any noiseless single coils, so even though these are really nice, I might replace with something more vintage in flavor. But I will keep them in there for a while until I decide anything.

Played this for a while through my Jet City stack and my Hughes and Kettner and both sound great with this guitar. My other guitar is a Les Paul so this is definitely lighter and fills that snappy single coil gap that I was missing.

Anything you want to know just ask. Sorry for quality of the pics. Cell phone of course.

Thank you! With all these tricked out exotic wood guitars around here I'm sure this looks plain by comparison but I prefer solid colors and this orange is really nice. Also nice having a color option that isn't extra $.

No shame in solid colors, at all. I keep forgetting how great that can look until someone posts one, then it throws so many plans out the window. :lol:

Looking great!

Oh, and I'm not sure if this is what you meant, but the S60 single coils aren't "noiseless single coils"...they are just single coils, that happen to be pretty quiet. :)

Really? They are insane quiet. I had some serious gain dialed up and these sounded dead quiet. Impressive.

Thanks Mike. You were a big help in addressing my concerns regarding the option 50 conversation we had. Not sure you even remember it now but you made me feel much better.

Yup and probably 1 reverse wound that cancels hum when used with the other, and possibly with the HB when it is tapped. But its just the reverse winding (and polarity) that cancels the hum.
But I know what you mean about the noiseless singles. Never cared for them much myself.

Nice Bolt. 8)

The white pickups, white pickguard and top color look really good together, nice selections.

Hopefully this weekend I can snap some outdoor pics with a better camera. I'll include the rest of the family.

Another thing of note. The new soft cases are awesome. I was blown away by how sturdy they are. Top quality.

I freakin' love orange!!! Definitely drop pictures of that baby into the Orange Club Thread under the Guitars, Bass and Amps Clubs section. Love the specs, the coil tap switch and really nice touch with the side mounted jack. It sounds like you may want to drop in a set of the AP11 pickups ... think hot vintage, and they are a favorite around these parts (at Carvin prices too).

Congrats on the guitar and happy NGD.

Cheers,
:mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Is it possible to get a picture outside?

I ask because that color looks like fender "Fiesta Red", which is one of my favorite colors. I had a strat that color which I sold and regret.

If this is as close as it looks, I could recreate it as a bolt with a floyd rose.

That is a beautiful Bolt my friend :applause: :applause: :applause:

Strange, but I thought about a Bolt build a couple of days ago. And I also brought the option 50 - side input jack to the writing board.

How are the Carvin Vintage Bridge? Do you like it?

I've always thought KRO leaned more towards red pretty strongly than it did yellow. It's a very reddish orange anytime I've seen it.
