I have a centura, only thing that’s odd to me is the straight headstock, I’m so used to tilted one’s shrug
Great player though, lightest guitar I own. On mine the toggle is a “fat “ tone for the bridge humbucker

I thought that was the Diablo? I’ve been after one for years but always just missed out

I may have identified my tone issue. aside from bad setup... the lil string lock blocks had busted up some whoever Herculesed down string locks cracked a good portion of them, some have missing sections so new set is ordered and on the way.

if thats the only surprise is get doing the setup I've got no problems.

I was using this website for info to correctly identify mine.

Diablo is HH with tilted bridge hum, which looks kinda ugly. Like a retta with added neck pickup.

These are the ones. I’m going to take out the barcus berrys from the one on the left and put some dimarzios in there. I’m also going to remove the zebra from the one one on the right. I am trying to get a band together for a show this Halloween, if I do I’ll play the one on the right when not something pink.

They look great :headbang Those are not Diablo I think? Looks more like an HH Centaura. Diablo had slanted bridge and straight neck, which looked kinda strange.
