Forum software update from 3.3.0 to 3.3.4

It's been a while since I updated the phpBB software to 3.3.0, primarily because they said the update process would be much easier afterwards. As you may recall, updating phpBB has been a problem several times in the past, once leading to a total loss of all members and messages. But I have, like we...

Re: Looking to buy a Talon II model

Welcome to the forum, and I hope you'll find one. If I were you I'd also leave a saved search on eBay, where they pop up with some regularity.

Re: EX Wining

I'd like to second that request, so it can be added to the actual site as well (so far it's primarily pics of various RR types in the "Wiring Diagrams" section).

Re: New to the forum. New axe.

Did you already share the serial number so that it can be added to the serial numbers database?

Re: New to the forum. New axe.

Yeah, it sure looks like a Talon I. I couldn't really see for sure what the bridge is, but if it's a Floyd Rose Original then it is a Talon I.

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

Oh, I forgot to tell you it's an Elan III (not II), actually. You can tell because it does not have a a Fender tremolo (rather a Floyd Rose one), and does not have two humbuckers (rather two humbuckers plus a single coil pickups).

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 ...
