    Alright guys (and gals),
    I took a little trip up to Pete Skjold's shop earlier this week, and I received a little sneak-peek at the goodness that is to come. Check out the pics I snapped with my cell phone. Camera phones are horrid in quality, but it's all I had at the time... That spalted beechwood is beautiful. :hyper: Word has it that Pete will be unveiling his new line of custom pickups and preamps (co-designed by John East) at the Arlington Guitar Show in October. Something was also mentioned about the possibility of some free stuff for TBer's if you go by his booth. Nothing set in stone, but a definate possibility. :ninja: You didn't hear it from me...

    I've been there recently as well. I love the stuff he is cooking up for display at this booth -- Singlecuts, different body styles, new pickups, different exotic woods....."and a NEW CAR!" :D
