Default Guitar done. With case!

I got it set up pretty well. Need to get some fret work done but it plays nice. Sounds incredible. I bought a Chinese knock off tweed case and made it look old. I will shellac it tomorrow with an amber tinted shellac, then clear.

Then Iíll toss it around the backyard and driveway. Iíve sanded down the hardware and need something to corrode it.

Good idea. Then Iíll have some drunk chick puke on it. It looked really weird brand new to my eye. Probably because all my shit is 30-55 years old

Iíll see if I can do a short vid tomorrow. This guitar puts out more power than my Les Paul. I.e., louder at same settings. Itís a beast.

Sounds excellent, Pete. Like a Telecaster, but better is how I would describe it.

Iím just getting used to it. Iíd describe it that way to. Like a really old telecaster but tighter, more even, punchier. Really articulated.

Make sure you post a picture of the first belt buckle scratch on the back of it.

I notice you weren't wearing one in the video.

The sound is really clean... ummm a bit "digital" versus "analog". I bet it has unlimited sustain!
