    Prices are interesting. I wonder how custom you can go regarding hardware and electronics, since there's no mention of it on the site and those pickup routes look completely specific for those pickups... Who'd buy a guitar you couldn't drop your choice of pickups into?

    Design doesn't win any aesthetics awards IMO. Those lines just don't flow well.

    The pickup routes take a standard humbucker should you want to change them.
    There will also be a full custom winding option along with several variations within the standard options.

    More info on the pickups and electronics as the website evolves. Had to have something on line for the Holy Grail Guitar Show.

    Just to reiterate since there as been two posts regarding the pickup routes.

    Damn, custom ERG's in Scotland never thought I'd see the day. This is definitely interesting!

    There are no hardware options in that there is very little choice in headless hardware I went with the Hipshot so that is what I will be offering on these guitars.
    The next model will have a fixed bridge and trem option. Hipshot fixed and a Gotoh trem.

    With regard to the electronics. As standard Volume/Tone/5 was lever.

    Tone with plug in caps 3 supplied with the guitar.
    2 5 way switch options.

    Active option as well using an East Tone Lifter with active/passive.

    With regard to the pickups I have been making bass for 11 years using my own pickups and my own sizes it is has not proven to be a problem. I provide a wide range of pickups to cover most requirements including multi-coil pickups so it has never really been an issue.

    The same will apply to the guitar pickups there will be a wide range available as standard with custom options if required. And as I have mentioned the route while specific to my own pickups was designed to be able to fit a humbucker dimensions taken from the Seymour Duncan site. So you have the same options you have in any guitar. Once you hear or try them you never know you might not want to change them.

    Demos in the pipeline once the player gets back from LA.
