~~~ Guitar Finished ! ~~~
I thorougly enjoyed playing this guitar when setting it up, and then along with CD music for about an hour after it was all set up.  This is one heck of a raucus machine with tone to die for !  I was surprised that the "baseball bat" neck played so well.  Stay tuned on the electronics / schematic page for how the switching works;  Quite sophisticated with allot of great tone selctions for any style of music ....and a banshee at higher gains.
