It plays like butter...............when it sits on the stand......it just screams..play me!..when i sit down to play...i will go and go...then i just happen to look up, and it 3 hours later. I havent felt this inspired to play in many moons. The frets are extra jumbo...almost feels like the board is scalloped.....crazy man. The pick ups are so responsive, it's insane. I wired it up like a PGM too.(single volume pot, no tone,5 way switching)
Thanks for everyone's help and your kinds comments and words. I am eternally greatful.

Ron

I enjoyed building this one so much, that once my life gets out of the shit hole....in about 6 months, i'm going to build another one..........probably go with a carvin kit or something like it. I have the guitar building bug now. Who knows, in the future I might actually get some woodworking tools and make my own guitar body, neck and go from there. I really enjoyed putting this together......and again, many, many thanks to everyone that contributed. I lost some shit, like addresses and names, when I moved...........so if I dont give thanks directly, I appologize. Life has really thrown me a large curve ball. I'm just now starting to get up off the ground. Thanks.


Ron

I read this thread a while back and didn't really think it could happen. Well done :) Good to see people donating different parts etc. You should embed a little tribute as a thanks to those who donated, like a little engravement; Add some soul and make it even more interesting. Looks an original guitar with the different coloured pickups etc. Good job.

More importantly what have/are you going to name it? :D

Funny....I was going to do this the other day, and got side-tracked.


I think we made the right move. :)
