    Here is a partial shot of an unfinished one of mine.
    The top you can see is a Dyed-Thru(blue) Maple burl.

    The sound you hear is my jaw dropping to the floor. That is some set of electronics that you have there.

    You had to ask. (Though I guess I opened myself up to it...)

    1. 6 way pickup selector for different PU/electronic combinations
    2. Blend knob for PUs.
    3. low/mid control for F Bass
    4. mid/high control for F Bass
    5. variable blend for F Bass EQs
    6. 3 way Q switch for Alembic
    7. Q filter for Alembic
    8. Volume control for F Bass
    9. Volume control for Alembic.

    The bass is also stereo. You can run a blended mono out, blended stereo out or split stereo with each set of electronics on their own LR channel. It requires an external battery pack and I had a floor box power supply made a few years ago so I didn't have to rely on batteries.

    Technically, that means I do plug it in to house current for power...

    I also have a 28 page manual/schematic that breaks down each board.

    At the moment, it also happens to be for sale.
