This is the guitar I created for myself. I used Purpleheart for the body and
headstock overlay. I used a standard maple neck. The heel is contoured down to
within 1 inch from the neck, making access easy all the way to the top. The unique
electronic system is what I like the most. I put a balance pot instead of a
3-way switch, a volume pot with a capacitor to retain the highs when the volume level
is reduced. The tone is a midrange cut/boost instead of the standard high cut
found on almost all guitars. I can bring a subtle distortion to a full scream
with a twist of a knob. There are coil cut switches for each pickup.
The electronics are passive to keep any unwanted harmonic distortion out.
This instrument is equipped with a Wilkinson Tremelo Bridge and has
Carvin SD humbuckers. It is extremely versitile - able to sound country
to rock, clean, warm, or screamy nasty.
