What is that guitar man? :badlove:
That’s a EGC 500 custom I had built. I asked for cream pickup covers then a few weeks later after a night of drinking I emailed him and asked for cream inlays to match the pickups. Totally forgot about the request and was stoked about how snazzy it turned out! Asked him to wind the pickups each a little different and that really worked out. The bridge sounds like a super tele, with all the snap and twang you could want. The neck is full albini treble sound bath with incredible clarity, the middle splits the difference. Had to do the three mini switches to turn each pick up on and off. I wanted a three way switch that simply solos each pick up but apparently that does not exist. Anyways, here is the Instagram glamour shots.

Congrats! Which did you go with?

Fingers crossed it doesn’t take Kevin 5 years to get yours completed. My buddy should finally see his new bass this coming week which is just a tick over the 5 year mark.
When I saw you with that lost look on your face saying you had just saw ET, I thought "uh oh, game over" - innerflight

Don’t stress. That guitar took them ten months. Totally worth it. The sounds in these are jaw dropping and they love fuzz. Especially MK I tonebenders!
