    Ok, ok, ok. I'm in too. Built this to be as close as possible to a 1950. One piece ash body fat neck. Wiring is different though. I used a Cavalier Hydra but only uesd the high and low taps and put the neck position switch as a cocked wah.

    Not all the way finished yet, but wanted to see how the Custom (A3 9.5k with 43 gauge wire) Bootstrap pickup sounded.

    I'll play. Here are my two. It was a lot of fun putting these together. They are both screamers, never miss the neck pickup !!

    That is super duper awesome man. Fantastic job, and I love the amps as well. They go brilliantly with that guitar. Nice set up!

    Great stuff - the light relic looks good. I love that Cab style one especially. Is that a Pine body?

    I love single pickup guitars. I have two juniors, and this guitar I built with a body I got from GFS that had a set neck and was prefinished. A friend gave me a bridge I think came from GFS also. GFS pick guard, tuners and blank control plate from AliExpress, Mojotone vintage taper pot and a Dimarzio Super Distortion pickup.

Assorted nickel hardware, wired straight volume/tone vitQ .047. Had fun putting it together, light as I’ve ever played. Super resonate. Only regret is that bridge/saddle set up. Changing it soon. A lot of great looking builds on here.

    Very nice guitar. And I totally agree - I hate those bridge saddles. Get yer three compensateds on there and you’re a winner!

    Nice, a little more "HI-Fi" than a stock Fender PU, with a touch of microphonics.

    Esquire build. Guitar Mill and Musikraft. I LOVE this guitar. Turned out as good as any name brand and better than most.
