Golden Sarge


Setelah dipandu uji semasa Isolated Gig Vol. 1 hujung bulan Mac lepas, ternyata Sarge merupakan gitar yang tegap dan sesuai menjadi platform untuk modifikasi.


Tapi hardware dan elektronik asal tidak berapa memuaskan hati (it's a lower tier Jackson after all) dan harus ditukar untuk menjadikannya gitar berprestasi tinggi. Enter, gold upgrades.

Sebelum modifikasi, untuk perbandingan.
Hardware dan elektronik yang ingin digunakan telahpun dirancang lebih awal, pada asalnya merupakan projek untuk Nightfall. Kebanyakkannya pernah dipasang pada gitar lain.
    • Tuning machines - Planet Waves PWAT-6R3.
    • Locking nut - Gotoh GHL-2-G (formerly installed in Mirage).
    • Pickup set - EMG 81/85 Metal Works (formerly installed in Korina).
    • Bridge - Gotoh GE1996T (formerly installed in Mirage).
    • Strap buttons, knobs, 3-way toggle switch - generic Lazada/Shopee.

    Tiada apa-apa masalah dihadapi semasa pemasangan tuning machine dan locking nut. PWAT-6R3 memang retrofit 100% dengan lubang tuning machine asal tanpa perlu sebarang modifikasi. Dan mungkin kali ini teknik aku betul, tali high-E dan B dapat dikepit dengan kuat tidak sepeti kes PWAT-331L dalam entri semalam.

    Hanya locking nut perlu dilaras ketinggiannya secukup rasa dengan shim logam yang dibekalkan Gotoh dan tambahan beberapa cebisan kertas.


    Begitu juga dengan bridge GE1996T yang retrofit dengan ruang kaviti tremolo asal berbanding sangkut semasa cuba dipasang pada Neon. Set pikap EMG 81/85 Metal Works emas melengkapkan pakej emas dan juga tugasnya sebagai gitar metal.

    Perlu diikat dengan cable tie supaya nampak kemas.
    Litar solderless EMG memang memudahkan kerja, ruang kaviti pun cukup luas berbanding pada Korina sebelum ini. Hanya wayar output sahaja perlu dimodifikasi sedikit (dipanjangkan) kerana jarak output jack (upper wing) dengan ruang kaviti (lower wing) agak jauh, dan kabel solderless asal agak pendek.

    Span di belakang spring sebagai peredam.
    Ini masalah yang sama dihadapi semasa memasang GE1996T pada Mirage beberapa tahun lepas. Kerana blok brass 40 mm agak panjang, ruang kaviti spring tidak dapat ditutup. Penyelesaian mudah, biarkan terbuka, tak ada masalah...


    Kini, dengan hardware yang lebih berkualiti terutama barangan Gotoh yang mengunci tali pada kedua-dua hujung, lebih yakin untuk menggunakan whammy bar. Prestasi kombo EMG 81/85 akan dipandu-uji semasa sessi jamming petang nanti.

    AADI: Akan cuba mendapatkan strap lock emas jenama Loxx.
