hi all. after all the help this site has been i wanted to contribute as well. my new g400 tobacco burst (2nd hand) before and after pictures. i wanted to go vintagey white, so replaced the pickup rings, pickguard, and old top hat knobs for some chicken heads. also, swapped out the innerds (pots/caps/switch/jack) to open it up a bit. only thing left is MAYBE switching out tuners for green keys... love that look. below the pics is a link to an audio recording i did before and after the pot/cap/wire/switch/jack replacement. When i got it: Now after my additions n strap heres the audio. out of tune i know, just recorded them clean. audio clip https://soundcloud.com/canoesouth/guitar-test/s-RrnXk :00-07 old (pots, caps, input, toggle) treble switch position 7-16 new treble :16-23 old middle position (both pickups) :23-31 new middle position :32-41 old rhythm position :41- 48 new rhythm position (notice the clear difference at :41) :49-57 Back and forth--- Old Treb, New Treb, Old Treb, New Treb :58-1:05 Back and forth --- old middle, new middle, old middle, new middle 106-End Back and forth --- old rhyth, new rhyth, old rhyth, new rhyth i didnt touch the two stock humbuckers, just replaced some wiring, all four pots, 2 capacitors, input jack, and pickup toggle switch (rhythm, middle, treble). cost me 30 bucks for a kit. it made an unbelievable difference, totally opened up the sound. thanks!
