This is my replica of Blue I made. In the bridge is a Seymour Duncan SH4-JB, same as Billie Joe uses. I have the stickers from 2016, with the addition of The Frustrators because they’re The Frustrators. Im planning to get locking tuners, mainly as I play this guitar live. I also want to find and add a Fernandes bridge and graphtech saddles, not only is this accurate but a great mod to any guitar.
that’s so awesome!! is that the same guitar model as Billie’s?
I wish, Billie’s is a Fernandes ‘The Revival’ RST-50, I believe. They go for the same price as Gibson’s these days. This is a Partscaster lol
Amazing job with the replica! Definitely hope you post some covers here or on the subreddit
Currently saving up for a decent amp to do exactly that! I can currently only practice at home through my PC. And when Im in the studio my times on my music so I cant record then either.
Smart move! Looking foward to when you get that amp
What song should I do first dyou think?
Hmmm depends. If you wanna do a classic I think Welcome to Paradise is always a crowd pleaser and you really get to highlight the guitar with the opening riff. If you wanna go for more of a deep cut I personally like At the Library or Armatage Shanks
Welcome To Paradise is great, I did a medley when I fitted the new SH4, and I did WTP, Basket Case and When I Come Around, such a good sound. I think At The Library would be fun too. When I get the amp I might do a poll to see what people think
I think that’s the best BJ lettering tape I’ve seen on a replica. I wanna make one like this so bad but not sure what era stickers to get
Thank you, I tried my best XD. Ive been wanting to go back and get the stickers from 1993, and do a fast aging process so I can have the torn stickers on the bottom, the outline of the 8 by the Children sticker etc, but Im not sure how to go about that yet.
Oh wow, this looks great!
