My cousin (the coolest cousin in the world by the way) gave me this as a graduation/birthday present. He bought the parts, painted it, assembled it, and did the custom decal on the headstock. Without further ado, here are the specs: Body: Swamp Ash Neck: Maple Fretboard: Pao Ferro Scale: 25.5" Hardware: 4 way toggle switch, volume knob, tone knob, Sperzel locking tuners, 22 frets, Schaller Security Lock, sunken input jack. Things I don't know: What pickups were used. The pin striping was done by Jim Carmickle over in Western Washington. Sound: It sounds god-awful with distortion, at least for metal it does. But you flip that toggle switch all the way up and it sounds like I have an acoustic guitar coming out of my cabinet. It has a very warm tone, and every note is crystal clear in a chord or arpeggio. The neck is not very fast at all; this guitar seems more like one that you'd play when you're in a really chill mood. It implies a bit more in the way of melody rather than just burning through scales and sweeping them arpeggios. I'll be uploading a sample to my soundcloud here in a few days, but I want to get the feel of it a little more before I do. I would also like to apologize for the picture quality in advance since I am not a photographer at all.
