“this is schleibaum’s esp E-II arrow... the road warrior beast, i love this guitar! it showed up tuned to B standard with heavy strings, an active emg james hetfield pickup, and dirty as hell. first, i stripped it down and cleaned it up. then, i installed a bridge ground wire and put in a seymour duncan 500k pot. baron seemed unimpressed and took a nap. i left the 9v power wires in but out of the way, in case we ever want to go back to active pickups, and the rest of the leads longer than i usually would for flexibility down the road if we need it. i had to modify a pickup ring to accommodate the vintage bill lawrence L500-XL pickup. tested the electronics before putting it all back together. finally, restrung and setup the guitar for drop C tuning with ernie ball skinny top/heavy bottom strings. and... it’s miller time!!!” #guitar #guitartech #espguitars #esparrow #seymourduncan #billlawrence #dimebagdarrell #ernieball #skinnytopheavybottom #cats #millerlite #itsmillertime #darkesthour
