    After a 4ish month wait, my guitar is in my hands. This guitar was worth the wait. I'm still getting used to the longer scale length.(28') I put it through the paces last night at jam and it's just so damn responsive. Pick lightly and my uberschall cleans up. It's got some crazy almost tele like spank, which is awesome because i fucking love teles.

    It's a very bright, clear sounding guitar and plays like a dream. the control layout looks like it has a tone knob but thats actually the piezo volume. you can push it for a mid bump on the piezo. It's also got a 3 way switch for mag/blend/piezo. so far i'm like to blend the piezo with a small amount of the neck pickup. i'm digging it. I'll make a video once i can figure out how to get a good sound over the video camera.

    on with the pics!

    What kind of pups are in there? Any side shots, neck profile/action shots. I am kicking around the idea of a custom 8 or an 2228. He seems to do good work.

    Awesome looking guitar. 4 months is damn quick and that looks top quality. Now you have a guitar to match the colour of your beard :D

    Seriously, can that action get any lower? Holy Lowered Action Batman. Any problems with buzzing at all? She's a beaut for sure!

    buzzes a little bit on the first few frets on the f# if i'm laying on my back and playing but if i lean it forward a little it's fine. i will probably check the action in a bit once i've played the hell out of it for a few days.

    compared to my lundgrens they aren't as hot. the lundgrens really beef up a distorted signal. these ones require a tiny bit more kick but they are much clearer which i'm surely happy about.
