I'd have to say there's more than a passing resemblance to my 2004 Resurrection Bolt as far as the hardware is concerned. I designed the pickup surround after a Featured Custom I'd seen on the Alembic Club. The bridge was the first Alembic they had ever put on one of their guitars. Guess now there's two. Beautiful instrument.Bear62 wrote:https://www.instagram.com/p/BFANGf7lIqJ/
Thanks aiq. I have a push/pull tone knob to activate the OBEL. Push/pull volume knob to activate the bridge pickup at any time, allowing for any pickup combination. The three switches are individual coil taps.aiq wrote:A beauty. I assume the OBEL is always on?
Edit: the switches for splitting the three PUs ?
Thanks T. The body has a padauk core, then maple, walnut, maple, quartersawn cocobolo top and back. Neck is maple, padauk, and walnut. Ebony fretboard and ebony pickup surround.TI4-1009 wrote:That's beautiful. Cocobolo and maple, ebony fingerboard? Nice work. You were paying attention in class
That's a nice guitar you have there I haven't been on the board for a while and was pleasantly surprised to find these clips. I kind of took a leap of faith by building these guitars as a set neck. I was shooting for a chassis that I could approach the wolf tone and tiger's tone, depending on the wood choices and electronics. Still don't have a proper Jerry rig to play mine through, so its really cool to hear a player as good as you get that thing going.hippieguy1954 wrote:Thanks, Mike!

I made a few short clips of me playing along with this very cool Not Fade Away (jam) backing track I found.
I'm not sure why, but soundcloud seems to lower the volume or something. So, ya have to crank it thru a good stereo or use headphones to hear it well.
