    WOW! Really like this one, much more than the other one, though I don't know why, as I am not all that crazy about spalted maple, but it just sits well with the overall shape IMHO. Great work :)

    No pics of the headstock for the moment.

    Crel pickups have a very old site http://perso.wanadoo.fr/crel

    The prices are false! the guy who builds them has now a new business, as an online dealer and he makes less and less pickups. I have to wait about 3 to 4 weeks for them!!!
