Re: Saddle type

Congratulations on getting a bargain (belly and all!). If the saddle is like what mine was (GB25 Dove) it is a very thin, non-compensated, piece of plastic, but contoured to properly match the fret board radius. Should be easy enough to either match or make your own. However. . . Those adjustable br...

Re: El Degas GL 36

I don't know for certain but judging by the pix I'd guess Spruce top, Brazilian Rosewood back, sides and fretboard, and Mahogany neck.

Re: Is this a legit El Degas?

Hi Mike, "Super Strat" is a generic reference to any Strat-like guitar with an H-S-S pickup configuration. It's not a particular model name. Charles will likely know more than I do, but this does appear to be an ED. I'm guessing Korean made. I'm not sure why you say there's no humbucker sw...

Re: El Degas GB81

Some pix would be nice eh? We love guitar porn here! Inked or stamped internal numbers regularly show up on virtually all MIJ guitars and I'll wager those made everywhere else too. You'll find them inside pickup routings and neck pockets on electric guitars as well as on neck heels and even on the b...

Re: 1971(?) el degas

Very kewl little axe!

Pity the P90 was removed from the bridge. That dramatically changes the tone and the character of the original design (not kewl) :(

Re: 1979 MT5AS El Degas 12 string

The image seems to have disappeared?

I agree Charles, the suffix normally would refer to the finish, at least on most Japanese guitars that I'm familiar with.
I can't remember what this guitar looks like now but AS might refer to Antique Sunburst?? Something like that.

Pierre!
Where have you been?!
You've not only been missing from here but the Mats and Westone Forums too. I hope everything is well with you et la famille proche mon ami.

That's a weird and wonderful guitar, beautifully made by the look of it. But it has to weigh a tonne! :mrgreen:

Re: El Degas Dove GB25 400?

missv , I think you will also find that although the el Degas model number remains the same the details can vary quite a bit from edition to edition and manufacturer to manufacturer. I have a GB25 circa 1975 made in Japan, likely by Chushin Gakki, and it is a superb instrument and beautifully detai...

Re: ElDegas MT7

Thanks Charles, I'm doing OK, and still afflicted with GAS (up to 37 now). Finding the money to feed the beast however is another story! I have been checking the site regularly but there has been quite a fall off this past year eh? These things tend to go in cycles so maybe things will pick up in 20...
