Custom Tangarine Fly, no pups, no controls, just RMC?
« on: January 14, 2015, 07:50:26 AM »
I have searched the forum but I can't find this one.  I remember someone having a custom Fly built with no pups and I think with RMC sadles and no controls.  It was for 13 pin use with all control being outboard.  It was in Tangerine and was gorgeous 8).

I was just trying to find the images and the threads about it but failed.  Do any of the longer standing members remember it?

Cheers

David

I had that built by the Custom Shop, but had to sell shortly thereafter when I was unemployed and had a newborn.

That was a great playing and sounding guitar, absolutely one-of-a-kind, but unfortunately I have no pictures of it...

Cheers Dayn.  Thinking about it, I think I might have a picture of it at work, I'll check on Monday. 

The reason I asked is that I have just added a GK3 to my Fly Concert and I am loving the sounds and the flexibility I am getting using it through a Boss GP-10 and a QSC K10. I am really only just starting on the journey to 13 pin but I am already thinking that I don't like the GK3 strapped on the the Fly and was thinking of changing the piezos to the Ghost or RMC systems.

Do you have any thoughts as to which would be the best option tracking wise? I am reading a lot on the VGGuitars forum as well but I really am a novice here so any real life guidance would be appreciated.

Cheers

I remember this guitar -- wanted to buy it but didn't have the funds at the time (also, I was hoping Dayn didn't really have to sell it.)

Recently bought a Bronze and will install a Ghost system but just the acoustic amp -- decided not to go Hex on this one. Having the back redone in a "Chroma" reflexive paint -- will let you know how it comes out.

That is beautiful. I'm a GK-3 guy as well and I've been thinking of doing this as a "project" guitar.  Thanks for sharing the pic!
