    And a video.

    Please excuse the quality of the video about half way through. When I zoomed in the quality went south.



    Specs:

    Sapele/Spalted Pecan chambered body
    Brazilian Rosewood veneer top w/black binding
    Satin Poly finish
    Ebony fretboard
    25" scale length
    1 11/16" nut & zero fret
    Bill Lawrence humbucking pickups
    CTS 500k pots
    Orange drop .047 cap
    Ernie Ball 10-46 Slinky strings

    Thank you all for contributing to the thread. I had a great time and learned a few new things.

    Thanks everyone. Yep, Max can play! I almost feel like that was cheating. I bet he could make a beat up pawn shop Squire sound good ;)

    Very classy. People are going to be squinting at it for years, wondering. . . . That spalted pecan is something else.

    Sounded fantastic, and the "Twist" is much more subtle that i originally envisioned.
    Kudos!

    Man, that sounds really good and looks really good too. Amazing.


    P.S. You spelled "spalted" wrong in your video. :)
