    It's the little things in life.... EDIT: More changes. :)

    I got a new strap for my Reflex and a blue pickup selector to match. I love this guitar and can't stop looking at it.

    I really love those guitars, though I've never quite gelled with the switching. Hard in a live setting to switch the lever and the toggle to go from clean to mean.

    (I'm about to re-wire my 25th to be a little more conventional.)

    I'd be curious to hear what you do with it. This one pretty much stays on the parallel setting 90% of the time. I have thought about reversing the 5-way on my cutlass, since I hit it often when playing hard. On that guitar, I'm on the two neck positions almost all the time.

    Sure- I'm in the process of doing it now:

    N (split) / N (series) / N & B / Inside coils (parallel) / Bridge (series).

    The toggle I'm using for series/parallel on the bridge only, so it'd be:

    N (split) / N (series) / N & B (parallel) / Inside coils (parallel) / Bridge (parallel).

    Going to use a silent circuit for the neck split. I like it a bit more split than parallel, it has more oomph.

    That looks fantastic ! IMO, a change or different look to any guitar seems to create different level of inspiration and approach to it, in playing. Where did you get the pick guard was it after market?

    I have a black Reflex and am considering a pick guard after seeing yours

    This guitar was a 1-off from the factory for an endorsed player. Somehow, it wound up in my hands.

    I love reading up on how y'all are tailoring the guts to fit the nuances of your playing styles.
    I think you have chimed in on a few of my posts, but mind if I shoot you a PM for some guidance?

    Thanks! I wired it up that day, sounds fantastic. I'll drag it out to a rehearsal next week and see how it sounds with the band.

    Yes, feel free to PM me.

    Love this white one-off reflex too!

    Yes, the 5-way switch plus toogle is not very comfortable for quick switching (clean to mean or back....). As a result I never use that many different positions, mainly 1/3/5 .... I rather use the volume pot instead of switching to position 2 or 4, especially if the toggle should be switched too....
    I LOVE the parallel settings! And I love the sound of this guitar in general

    Is that an Original Fuzz strap? Was shopping around for those recently and they have a similar vibe to yours. Looks rad
