Smile Introducing my band, gear, etc

Hi all!

This looks like a fun forum! My name is Ben, I play guitar in the NYC-based classic metal band TWILIGHT ODYSSEY. We've been around for a couple of years, and our debut CD is available from Hellion Records.

Web site is www.twilight-odyssey.com, and you can hear the single from our album on the "Music" page.

I endorse Gajic Custom and Wayne guitars, HomeBrew Electronics pedals, Bare Knuckle pickups, and Splawn amps. Here are a couple of pics of my gear:

LOL, those amps belong to the rehearsal studio I use. Here's an even crazier picture of my little corner:

Scott Splawn is an amp builder in North Carolina USA, http://splawnguitars.com/amps_products.htm. He makes incredible amps that basically sound like hot-rodded Marshalls from the 80s; amazing old-school metal tones!!

All those guitars look awesome !! That is the first time I've seen a spider web pickguard on a sunburst guitar and it has the maple board reverse head neck on it. That is so cool, where can you get those pickguards ?

It's really funny about the Strat, b/c so many people told me it would look crap, but I had faith that it would look awesome! lol

I got the scratch plate here, http://www.pickguards.com. They are all made to order, so you can get whatever you want, basically. It was about $40 for the scratch plate, and another $12 for the screws (Allparts). The quality of what they make is uber high!

The body of that guitar is a 1979 Strat, which I 'routed' (lol) for a bridge HB. The neck is made by Lazar Gajic. All of my necks are 1-3/4" nut width, 14" radius, with a modified J Frog profile. Fret wire on all my necks is Dunlop 6100.

The bridge HB on the strat is a Bare Knuckle VHII. I found the body to be too bright, however, so I had a mini-toggle installed on the guitar. The down position has a capacitor that mimics a Fender tone control at 8-9, and the up position capacitor is a Gibson tone control at 8-9. There is also a resistor in series with the pickup that tames the very high frequencies a bit. There is no volume control on the guitar, ie, it is "live" at all times.

It started life as an ESP Kamikaze 4. I had Laz Gajic make me a neck, changed all the hardware to chrome (including the OFR), and added a Bare Knuckle Miracle Man to the bridge and Irish Tour to the neck.

What you can't see is that the fingerboard to the green guitar is birdseye maple, and the strat is flame maple. Here are a couple of closeups of the fingerboards:
