    Yep, what KnightBrolaire said. He responds within a day. I also have the SFTY4 versions and like those a bit better I think. Both are great and versatile.

    Is there a description of his pickup models anywhere? I would be curious to see what he all offers.

    That looks fantastic! It's cool to see new builders in Seattle (commercial or not).

    This is stunning as a whole, but that neck joint is beautiful. It looks like one of this Vaporub luthier you can't pronounce the name guitar, but better.

    Eh.....its alright (j/k lol) great looking work

    What’s this new brand of pickups? I never heard of them, they sound very tight though. Are these like hand wound traditional Lundgren type quality or are they some new breed?

    A bit of an IPA guy myself...but good wines are nice too, lol. I spent a lot of time mocking up woods to see what would look right together on this one. When I stained it, it totally ruined the pairing (even though it was kind of cool). I absolutely love the natural wood pairing with oil finish now.

    Did a lot of this with a lot of said IPA's. (Far right)

    Love it. Gives me some serious Vik/Schecter Avenger vibes in the best of ways. How's the weight? The only guitar I had with an evertune was pretty heavy. (lots of metal.) Still, the trade off for being able to slap the fuck out of the strings with nice thin gauges was well worth the weight tradeoff, but I'm curious if I just had a heavy guitar or if the evertune was THAT heavy.

    Sick guitar all the same. I'd buy one, weight be damned.

    I believe the evertune weighs 1.25lbs in 6-string. A Floyd rose bridge with the standard block is 1lbs, plus locking nut. The brass block Floyd is 1.25lbs (plus lock nut). The Evertune's route, though, is a little bigger, so you actually remove slightly more wood, which eats in to that weight difference.

    In short, I don't think it was the Evertune to blame.

    Compared to a fixed Hipshot bridge, yeah the Evertune adds some weight. Agree that compared to a Floyd it's negligible. For any drawbacks it has, the ease of string changes, perfect intonation, and staying in tune makes it a win for me.

    My wood collection is becoming an addiction, and quickly out pacing my time to build as a weekend warrior. Buckeye Burl featured dead center, was planned to be a multi-scale bass for myself, but now I'm waiting for the Evertune bass bridge and put it on hold.

    Cell phone pick closer up of the neck transition. The Rosewood has some streaks in it. The wedge between the neck and body is the "feature" I added..... as in I routed too deeply and had to fill it.
