    I wish! Tracking says it will be here before lunch but, since covid, couriers have been very unreliable here. Hopefully soon! It's not like I'm waiting or anything. . . . .

    You know this is because less knobs leads to a more pure signal. I made a Tom Delonge style guitar for a friend and with just a volume, it really changed the tone of the pickup. Super awesome guitar. I used a cheap-ass pup too and everyone that hears that guitar just marvels at the set of balls it has. These simplified controls really do a lot.

    It’s amazing…. Good luck.. after almost 60+ years of playing, it does not even cross my mind on the kind of guitars I have but when a color pops up that gets me…I go for it….this one I would jump at too

    I’m pretty sure that second picture damaged my retina. I’ll have my lawyers get in touch. :)

    That is striking.

    I think that they call that color “Shades of Chernobyl”. :)

    That is stunning!

    Now you've got me looking at HotRods online.

    Enjoy it!

    Cheers folks - I Love it! Can't wait to get it out on stage under the lights... Should have been playing tomorrow night but unfortunately having to isolate. Will be a couple of weeks before I can take it out.

    Got the action set how I like now - Just need to get rid of these 10s that are on it and put a set of my usual 11-54 on :)
