To answer your question.....no, i'm not going to paint it. Paint actually cuts down on sustain...IMO. It has a coating of tung oil on the body. The neck is raw.

The pickups are:
Neck= Dimarzio Tone Zone
Middle=Fender Texas Special
Bridge=Dimarzio Super Distortion.

Single 500k volume pot. Wired up ala PGM. Notice that I filled in where the volume pot was originally located?

This guitar sings forever. It has a very loud acoustic tone unplugged. I am very happy with it. Thank you to everyone that contributed. This is one guitar that will never leave my possesion. Trust me on that.

Ron

Thanks Eddie.....the switch tip is actually one of the single coil rubber mounts that the spring and screw goes through. It works just fine. In the future I will either get a blue tip and knob or a pink tip and knob. Thanks again Eddie for everything.

That is one mighty schweet guitar mate, I can think of no soul who deserves it more than you bud. :D

Also, don't part with it for love nor money...for THAT is the guitar which love built. :)

hahaha ........no..nothing else on there.....this isnt to be associated with paul gilbert. This is my own.


Thanks for the input though.....I actually thought about some blue ones...and then re-thought about it.
