    How do the angled and non-angled bridge pickups differ, tone-wise?

    Not a great deal, El Lobo.... I guess?....

    the red one has a 4 way and a TBX tone stack and the brown one is a 3 way and two volumes and no tone.....

    both different animals..... with different brand pickups.... very hard to compare....though similar I guess...

    the angled bridge is homage to Leo to keep the fender Tele theme..... the parallel pickups is too much like those other makers I don't need to mention here...

    there are no rules for PU placement.. dare to be different...:)

    Made by my friend Jeremy Parks out of Las Vegas.
    Alder body, flame maple neck in a '52 style boat profile
    nitro finish
    Fralin custom pair, with a splittable humbucker

    This guitar has so many voices, it's astounding.

    My G&L ASAT Classic Buesboy 90 [sic]. One of my favorite all-time guitars. It's hard to see in the pix, but the finish is a deep metalflake black.

    I would love to hear how those Imperials sound. Do you have any sound clips?

    A 12-string from a Reid & Sons kit won on eBay for $75 shipped. The full story is here:

    It's fantastic, everything I wanted/missed in a 12-string electric. I still don't quite understand how it turned out so well, as it was my first kit/'build' attempt. Even the tuners are still working flawlessly. Neck is a little chunkier than I like but on the other hand I like the solidity of it.

    And only 6.25 lbs. (wood is paulownia). The slight neck dive is remedied with a wide, suede-backed strap.

    A pro friend who gigs with a 12-string played it and immediately offered me $500 for it! I said it was not for sale. (Do I hear $1,000? ...probably sell it for that! LOL) He wants me to make one for him. I might do it.
