First Act A guitar Story
OK...i was out to a few garage sales etc a few years back and saw a First Act guitar. It was never used. So I picked it up and the neck and body were really nice. So i got it for 15$... you can't go wrong.
I took it totally apart, tuning pegs, neck, pots etc. Did a full adjustment on the truss rod...which I did a 1/4 turn every 3 or 4 days until it was correct. I had to shim the neck...so all in all it worked out pretty well. Added new strings and tuned it up..nice action and the intonation was really good considering the cost of guitar. I put it on a guitar stand and basically left it there for about 2 maybe 3 weeks. And low and behold when I picked it up to play it was still in tune (high E was slightly off) Plugged it into my Fender 112 ultra and it sounded Ok...given the crappy single humbucker. So, now I am going to paint it flat black and replace the humbucker and pots.
Not bad for 15$. and some elbow grease!
This song was recorded with my Fender tele for the rhythm tracks and the First Act guitar plugged directly into my audio interface with a guitar rack VST , some EQ and compression & reverb for the solo sound...it sounds great to me. I can not lie..the drums and rhythm are about 3 months old... BUT the solo and bass are as of today.
You be the judge!
