    Thank you!

    Thanks! I like it too-- although I don't really use one much, I still really wanted to try my hand at making one that works well.

    That bridge pup rocks, and it's a nice warble you get out of that trem. Nice job!

    Seems to be a stiff handle on the tremolo right? Not like you could dive accidentally...

    Thanks, I like it, it's nice and bright but without being shrill or thin. I think a big part of it is that it's sitting way below the strings and is fairly far forward.

    Yeah. The spring and the mechanical advantage I gave it over the strings makes it really predictable.

    Thank you!

    Nicely done, Chris! That's definitely one to be proud of, and those pickups sound great!

    Well, I gotta see if I can keep building at all next year... Things change fast in our way of life... Today you can afford it, tomorrow you can't.

    But I am seriously deeply impressed mate.

    That's no kidding. :rolleyes: I'd like to tell myself that I'll still be doing this for the foreseeable future but its hard to say.

    Thanks!

    Thanks Jim!



    Did another quick video with some gain.

    :cool:

    Thank you! I really like how the trem worked out. If I can find someone that plays a bit more rambunctiously, we may get to hear some dive-bombs.

    Thanks!

    Thanks!
    We had another for a while but he had to drop out for a family emergency. It's a real shame, his would have been awesome.

    Thank you!
