The Visionary Moore Paul

Posted by The Fretwire on

Builder:  Bill

Comments:  This is my second build. I wanted a signature guitar for recording, and playing live. I fell in love with one of the builds here, but naturally wanted to do something more personal. I started with dye: yellow for the core of the fireball burst, red for the outside. I replaced just about every piece of hardware that came with this kit, because I'm a professional, and I needed something that sounded, and looked, at least as good as anything I could pick up at the store. I replaced the pups with Seymour Duncans: SH-5 in the neck position, and SH-6 at the bridge. I put in an active Seymour Duncan Blackouts BMP-1 preamp. I replaced the bridge with a Golden Age Roller Bridge, to reduce string breakage, and because the chrome version comes with brass rollers, for some nice contrast. I replaced the stock stop tailpiece with a GOTOH gold one. I replaced the tuners with GOTOH Keystone gold plated ones. For the truss rod cover, I used a guy in China who makes custom ones:  https://www.ebay.com/itm/Hand-engraving-handmade-brass-truss-rod-cover-fits-most-Gibson-Les-Paul-SG/263525157242?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m2749.l2649 I also had the same guy do custom knobs for me, with my own designs, I've also ordered a gold neck plate, with my signature The Visionary  rune. The action is perfect, and it sounds as good as any other axe in my arsenal.
