Re: Share my Elan II (I guess...)

Re: New Talon Day

I do think it's Chrome Red. Frost Red tends to be almost a bit pink in artificial light. Thanks for the detailed low-down on this guitar. I will be added to the Serial Numbers database this weekend.

Re: Which humbuckers?

I contacted DiMarzio last week and this is what they replied: I believe the bridge pickup was a Super 3 (DP152). There should be a model number on the baseplate. The DC resistance is very high, over 18Kohms. I don’t know if all Talons had the same pickups. It’s possible the earliest models did not h...

Which humbuckers?

Someone asked me which humbuckers are in the Talon models. He was once told they would be DiMarzio super distortion 3, but these did not come out until 1994 so that's too late. Maybe it's a regular super distortion or a super 2? I don't know if this is simply a measuring-the-impedance type of thing ...

Re: Heartfield Facebook group

Glad there's a Facebook group, and I don't mind they picked the Heartfield Guitars logo either ;-)
I hope the members will also find their way over here.

Re: Share my Elan II (I guess...)

Welcome to the forum, and thanks for sharing your story. Unfortunately I could not see any of the pictures. I just get a circle with a minus in it for each. Or is it just me? Maybe you can try a different method and edit your original message, Once I see the picures I may also get answers to y quest...

Re: Hello

Yep, these links work, thanks! Care to tell us about the serial number, so it can be added to the serial numbers database?
And welcome to the forum, obviously!

Re: Elan I scale length

Thanks for sharing that information. I didn't have any Elan models myself so I never measured them personally. Will fix this on the site.
