Thanks, I got busy and couldn't get pictures up. I now have the first of many coats of sander sealer on it. worthy already, can't wait to see it done and buffed.
Hey, has anyone used the parallel axes singles? I'm thinking of getting a pair for this, I have the PA trembucker for it.

You'll love em boss...Lots of grind and balls. My second favorite SD single behind the Quarter Pounder. Just beware they might not fit in those direct mount single coil routs without some wood work. They have very square bobbin profiles, but they're worth the work and look kewell!

Right - no gold and no @#$% EMG's.. Paint should be hard enough to buff next week.

Are you back in business????? The blue on the Pro Axe is out of this world. I would love to have yet another Vinnie T Swan in the house. Send me a PM when you get some time.

I assume you are talking about the Original Parallel Axis. You've got to try out the Parallel Axis Distortion pickup...the output is over 22k on mine. I have it in my hologrid dinky Baretta and love it.

I've been thinking of replacing the Custom Custom in my holo Swan, maybe I'll give it a try!

I've got a distortion PA in one of my ProAxes, it kills but don't go looking for any clean tones...
