    Cotton Candy is SUPER Tasty

    She is now a collection of cast-off parts. The body is no cast-off, but the neck was a bargain-bin Warmoth (with a big, fat luthier's joint at the third fret) destined for another project, the pickup was almost going to go on e bay, and I had nearly given up on the project.

    But alas, my buddy (and owner of Boobtone Amplification) needed a guitar to go to my most amazing tech shoppe, J. Gravity Strings. He has a '64 SG Jr. that needed a new nut. I just decided at the last moment to destroy the (then) current build of Cotton Candy. Cotton Candy had a '54 Strat RI neck (all maple), a SD '78 pup, and a black Floyd Rose. I tore the build down 'cos I HATED how she played...

    Boy, am I glad I did. Slotting in the DiMarzio Super Distortion instead of the SD '78 was the best thing I had done. That '78 just does not do well in Mahogany. The fat '59 LP contour on that neck really likes Cotton Candy. I actually like rosewood boards again!!! And to paraphrase someone who had posted the quote "never get rid of a DiMarzio, you never know what guitar it will sound great in" was absolutely correct!!!

    Cotton Candy felt good when I did the obligatory out-of-the-case test, but I had to plug her in. So, when I delivered the '64 SG Jr., I had to let Steve play Cotton Candy.

    He couldn't stop playing her!!!! I hope that I can convince him to include a video of Cotton Candy on his youtube channel. He seems to only want to show vintage Les Pauls and Strats...

    I hope to somehow get pics on here of Cotton Candy, who is definitely TASTY.
    Dammit!!! I still smell like cotton candy!!!

    Goes back to my main guitar hero, Ace Frehey. I know- blasphemy on these pages. I love Eddie as well. But a DiMarzio in a Les Paul is the best combo my long ears have EVER heard.

    I love SD's, but the sentimental favourite is a DiMarzio in a Les Paul, for me anyways...
