...except for the truss rod cover. I still have to design that. It will be padauk/maple. It has GFS Vintage 59 buckers in it. It also has some relief cuts the original CamelBack did not have. Cheers!

Boggs, I would like to ask a couple of questions, if you don't mind.

 

Did you make the guitar on commission or for somebody in particular?

 

How much did the materials cost, how many hours work did you put in on it, and how much are you asking for it?

 

How do you settle on you prices?

 

Do you include a case with the guitars you sell?

Always remember that you�re unique. Just like everyone else.

Just had the guitar in Mike Gladstone's hands at an Uncle Plum gig at The Pelican's Nest... I may be partial, but I heard a lot of the best qualities of an SG but with extremely clear string articulation and chime... No mud to be found, but thick and meaty with clarity... His patches on his new effects board were set up for his PRS, but it more than held its own. The band members seemed to like it, but anything in Mike's hands sounds like gold... He played it through a monster Nau Engineering head and a Marshall half-stack and they were LOUD with no feedback problems! WOO-HOO!! One problem with it... Brand new pots and the volume pot acted dirty... I have had a rash of bad parts lately. Two pots and three blade switches... WTF?!!! Where are the suppliers getting this crap these days?!!!

 

Pot replaced. Quiet as a mouse now... Also did a mod to the pickup mount and the springs for the Neovin pickups of the CB-II which was low on output. It allowed me to move them closer to the strings. I have heard they are really sensitive to height and apparently this is the case. They still have good punch, but now they have some balls, too.

You know, I have more people complain to me that they can't stand playing Strats BECAUSE the pot is so close to the bridge pickup / strum area... Nice thing is, with a custom build, you can pretty much have it located exactly where you want it. ;) Where it is in this one, I can still reach it for swells, but it is not intrusive with aggressive strumming. Worst case, you can use a volume foot pedal...
