    Is that a standard transparent ash body? Looks pretty cool and different to me.

    Wow, that looks nice like that, what finish is it, or is it stripped?

    Standard satin finish. The only changes are the knobs, and removing the pickguard.

    Wow!!! With grain like that I would leave it. If you do decide to get it finished it would be a crime to hide that very cool grain. Make it a trans finish if anything so the grain is visible. Just my .02.

    I need to post some pics of mine. I just put a set of Railhammer Humcutters in my JV60. Sounds great! Iím also contemplating changing the paint color to Pelham Blue.

    How do the Railhammers compare? I have no interest in changing my pickups, but I’m interested to hear why you prefer them.

    I didn’t get along with the stock “tele” pickup. I wanted to bridge the gap between tele spank and humbucker growl. I took a chance in the Railhammers, and I am well pleased.

    These have great response. They are very dynamic. They are very adaptive pickups. I can clean them up and get tele style tones. They respond well to volume and tone adjustments. They take gain well. Honestly, they take the Valentine design, meant to adapt to multiple styles easily, and opens it up. The guitar tech that installed them told me he was insanely jealous of me for putting those pickups in that guitar. He wants a set now.

    I’d recommend the humcutters to anyone, especially if you want tele, P90 and humbuckers in one bundle.

    I have always wanted to try Railhammers. I'm wondering how the stock bridge pickup would work in the neck position?

    I never really loved the tortoise pick guard on my trans maroon Valentine, so I had a new one made and swapped out the switch tip. The new one is cream, with a cream switch tip, and it suits me much better this way, while having a classic look to my eye.
