    How did you make the nut and bridge?

    Also, I'd turn the pickup so all 4 magnets are under the string...

    I would like to order one. Can I get one w/a quilt maple top?
    I am so sick & tired of moving my anchor point around anyway.

    Actually, there are inlays. At the 5th, 12th and 24th positions. The Luthier used a strange, yet subtle material. I could be wrong, but I believe it's blue ink.

  13. That's pretty cool.

    Reminds me of Claypool on that live dvd.
     
  14. my only issue would be the weight or lack there of. if i decided to start really getting creative i dont think i could hold that thing still

    Looks like it would double as a fishin' pole with a little extra string and a hook. Very very nice indeed!

    I see you had it pre-wired with upgrades in mind (pickup will take 3 more strings!). Nice! :p

    I'm so confused.
     

  18. And you could make your own TL cab and it would double as a case :)

    Is this for whamola or the new neo-punk-prog-skiffle scene I've been hearing so much about?
