maiba nga pala ako nabanggit sa'min ni utol baka di daw pala muna tumanggap ng project guitars si mang max...sa tingin dapat bigyan naman natin ng pahinga si mang max alam naman natin na handcrafted process yung mga works niya...IMHO lang naman

So ngayon, hindi muna siya tumatanggap ng custom orders?

mga tsong meron lang ako gusto i share na experience...mahilig kc ako mag kalikot ng mga pickups ko, pero minsan kahit na pulido yung wiring ko, meron akong napapansin na isa sa pickups ko ay kulang sa gain at mahina ang output (ito yun pickup na yun = EMG-SEHG), sinama ko sya sa Seymour Duncan na pickup..pero mahina talaga tunog nya..last saturday, nagpunta ako kila mang max...meron dalawang tao dun na may dalang tokai na LP, nag pa check up sila ng P.U. nito..tinest ni mang max..sibi nya..out of phase daw ang tunog...naging curious ako di ko kasi alam anong term sa guitar ang out of phase..tinuruan nya kami..kung papaano itatama yun para lumakas ang gain ng pickup at lumakas ang mids..babaliktarin lang pala ang polarity ng out of phase na P.U., sabi nya malalaman mo pag out of phase ang P.U. pag:

1. mahina ang tunog nito..
2. pag gamit mo yung dalawang pickups mo..pareho silang humihina..

nalaman ko din na magkabaliktad pala ang polarity ng diagram ng EMG & Seymour Duncan..

kaya kung pagsasamahin mo yung SD & EMG Kailangan Isa sa kanila babaliktarin mo Polarity (i.e. yung hot gagawin mong ground wire)

dun ko lang natutunan yun, sa tagal ko nang nag kakabit ng P.U.

ayus...binigyan pa ako ng pots ni mang maxx, made in japan..heheheh

sana makatulong to sa mga mahilig din magkalikot ng guitar heheheh

peace  :-D

give mang max new tools, better tools adds more quality in the work  :-)

That's another factor that prolongs the wait time, he does almost everything by hand & uses just a few ol'trusty machines to help him finish the job faster.

Hehe. Once he has something similar to ash, I'm gonna be sold on him.

Musta na gitara mo, sir rad? Naabutan mo pa ba yung production timeline ni mang max? Sana malapit na matapos.:) Curious na ako sa tunog and kinalabasan.
