    Well, I'm on a bit of a roll. Get a new-to-me amp last week, and a new guitar today!
    It's from Brian at B&V Woodworks (B&V Woodworks). Brian is a great guy and a talented luthier. The guitar is wicked cool. Pine body and a quartersawn sycamore neck. The neck was hand-carved to my specs, and it feels awesome. The markings on the neck are beautiful. It is really light and resonant and sounds great.
    I'm really happy with it. Here's some pics (you can see the DRRI in the background):

    Thanks, all. I love its simplicity. The pickup is some sort of prototype he had around. I think it might be a Budz, but I don't know for sure. It meters at 14+k! But with the pine body and the sycamore neck, it mellows that out. It's just wired for volume and tone, but the tone pot is very usable on it. I think it might be that the pickup is so hot, it has more tonal range (I could be full of it, though). It's drilled so that if I decide I want a neck p'up, I just need to route it, which is cool.

    The neck is awesome. It's finished in nitro, and he hand carves them, and so there's some slight variances in it, which gives it a cool, organic feel. Anyone else love the smell of nitro? Something about that smell that I just love. The neck feels like an antique. I played it a bunch last night and am really digging it.

    I like the simplicity - there's a bit of a Melody Maker vibe there....:cool:
