Pantera x 350 ma

Post by Westbone on Sun Jan 29, 2012 4:21 pm

This looks as if the pickups have been changed.
In fact they are MMK 75's with white bobbins.
Never seen that before. Also the knobs are upside down switchmaster's made of aluminium.




Switchmaster on the right.

No only 2. I already had pickup covers and replacement knobs and put them on in the other post in members guitars.
Came across the knobs again and though I'd put it up for all to see.
Just put this post up in the wrong section. bounce

This reminds of this bit of TP knowledge:
"The Switchmasters were actually kind of an accident too. We were making a Spectrum for NAMM that was a really sweet Tama-Moku body with a bleached rosewood fingerboard and I wanted the knobs to be invisible. I turned a few wooden knobs in a cone design out of the body wood and drilled them out. I may have been a little blasted at the time - 3 or 4 Kirins - and ended up drilling ALL of them on the wrong end. OK, you all have been there. Stupid mistakes happen to musicians all of the time but for God sakes, why does it have to happen ONE day before NAMM. So, I stuck them on the proto and found out that you could pull up the tap with your little finger without slipping off!"
