Then you have to try BlackOuts or the metal BlackOut or do the 18 Volt mod to them - you'll give up yer EMGs...

Erik, this is looking so good I'm going to re-clear the ProAxe next. I've got a PA pickup for the bridge too when I redo it.

Water base from StewMac Takes a little to get the hang of it but works great.

Can't say I agree with that, but we've had this discussion before.

By the way, nice guitar as always. I feel like we tell you "nice guitar" at least once a week! ;)

OK Just waiting on my PA single's.


Here is the Imperial NGD!


It has kind of marbling on the paint - maybe like oxidation on an old car's paint, it looks very cool.

I wired the PA humbucker right to the vol pot and straight out, man it sounds good. Like a Baretta in mahogany body. The PA pickup breaks up real nice and roll the vol down and it cleans up excellent. I'm using a hopped up Fender style non-master type amp running a pair of hot and sweaty 6L6's.

Nope, they got put on the back burner. I'll get back to it this winter. I've been busy building a big Koi pond. And there is where my money all went for now.
