I'd try one. The only thing I'm really not crazy about is the headstock shape, but I'm funny that way. My brother and I have been building/designing guitars for quite awhile now, and we can't decide on a headstock to save our lives. I'd like to know how well the output levels balance between the mini-hums and the single coil, that would definitely influence my decision to purchase one.
Hey Vince, how about a rear-rout version with no pickgaurd?
It's not a mini-van, it's a manly van, and it's awesome.
