Can I have a Little Phatty SE with TE Edition Cosmetics?

Post by sequence » Thu Nov 01, 2007 3:58 am

Well, it had to happen: I saw and played my first LP TE (used at a GC) and I have admit: those wood side panels and led/wheel colors make it so much more asthetically pleasing than the SE. So I get home and I imagine/fantasize my truly beloved SE with those cool cool blue and purplish lights/wheels and them wood side panels and wonder:

Would a retrofit be possible? If so, how complicated could it get? I think a crack carpenter could fashion the sides, maybe use some exotic woods, but how aboot those lites? :D

The lights are probably just standard LEDs and can be obtained at any electronics dealer.

Replacing them is another matter but, everything can be done. Replicating the wood panels shouldnt be too hard either if your carpenter bud has the skills.

You could always ask Amos on how to best go about this.

on a random note i clicked on this thread and your little phatty meets big fatty pic was in the top corner....weird.....on another note i think replacing the cheeks would be about as far as i would go, because i imho wouldnt risk changing anything internally unless it needed it.

Check out what this guy did in the Moog Forum. Great job at replacing the end cheeks!

'cause Im on the Moog forum I saw that awhile back and yeah I showed my carp friend, but quite frankly if I had the choice between the "mod" it would be the lites :D that woodwork is tres kewl tho :D

then I could always sell/trade SE or get a NOS or used TE, with all the factory OS and firmware upgrades for TE, they're pretty much the same instruments aren't they??

I like the look of the SE more than the TE, but that one looks incredible!

Wow, it's amazing the difference a little wood makes, personally I can't stand to look at the SE for more than a few seconds while I think the TE is an absolute sex machine.
