I always really liked the look of Pedulla Raptures, so the body is pretty much a Rapture with slight modifications. And the pickguard is Lecompte-inspired (if Bud is ok with that). I'm still not sure of exact specs, but here's what I'm thinking. Swamp ash body White pearloid pickguard 3 pc wenge/maple/wenge neck Maple fretboard w/ black binding Chrome hardware The 12th inlay will be more than just a block, but I know I want something simple and black. If anybody has a cool idea, or maybe can draw a cool looking B (for Bardolph "custom" I guess). As for pickups, I'm pretty sure I want to go with humbuckers. I was thinking about bartolini, but from what I read they sound like they may be a bit tame sounding. I'm looking for an agressive growl, but not EMG sparkly. Something like a Cirrus, or a less trebley Ken Smith. So, any comments or suggestions?
