What to do with an old Starfire that's been hacked? My friend Tim from the "Swinging Steaks" brought this to me and said, "I want good vibe with this guitar. I was thinking about P-90's". To the Bat-cave Robin!
I tore through my pile of "junk" - several thousand dollars worth of vintage and current used parts, slightly categorized on different shelves of a big wire rack.
Sure enough, an ancient pair of P-90's with a good strong reading. How to mount them? Meanwhile, back at the rack….. Yeah, baby!
A nice set of chrome dog-ear covers. After the electronics were squared away, we gave the pedestal bridge the ol' heave-ho and hard-mounted a Nashville bridge into the face & center block for that 335 effect. Bingo! An ES-335, ES-330, or Starfire NEVER sounded like this! No feedback like a 330, way more character than a 335, and well, Starfire? This one's born-again hard! How much for the ancient P-90's with the obsolete chrome doggy covers? DON'T ASK!
