    yeah, I'm a "pedal-er" too...Lol

    I admire people who can do volume and tone adjustments with the knobs on the fly...one of the best has to be Jeff Beck. I'm just not that coordinated, I guess...so volume swells are done with my pedal, and even a lot of my tone changes are just different patches I have created on my Vox Tonelab ST! I do, however switch between pups for various reasons, and for me having the switch in the traditional place is best. and, no, I haven't gotten to switching it yet....Lol...Easter was a busy day!. Maybe today...on the other hand, I don't have a practice till Friday, Gig on Saturday, so, knowing me I'll do it Thursday night! haha

    another reverse plate... a lefty/righty for a mate..
    LP bridge / stock US Tele neck... sounds great.. I'll be sorry to see it go to old mate...

    it will be easier for him to get to the 3 way with a stump left arm... the top hat is higher than the knobs so a sweep of his forearm will be able to flick it back and forth from the outside.. and leave the V knob clear at the front...

    it's harder to play upside down for a normal righty.. neck pos is ok as your arm holds the switch that way.. the bridge setting is awkward to get around...sticks up like a sore thumb...

    the very reason I made a flipped guitar for him.. to get the controls out from under his armpit!...

    I think it looks a bit off from an aesthetic point of view, and like Dan German I change pickups more than I do volume swells
