    Yeah, upon looking at the photo myself, I can certainly see how it might appear to be something other than a floor, especially with window lighting coming from one side and indoor lighting from above.

    Another MJT black Esquire. 6 1/2 lbs. with an ash body and aged Allparts TMO-C neck. Need to find the right pickup. Not sure if I want a tapped bridge or the traditional wiring.

    Oh man. I like this. We need details. What’s the third knob for? And what kind of pick ups?

    Glad you like it! I kind of like it myself. It's a pretty fun little guitar!

    *Used Warmoth body picked up on TGP about a week ago
    *Wolfetone "Mean" P90s in both positions
    *Musikraft neck
    *Hipshot bridge
    *Gotoh vintage tuners
    *Bone nut

    I just happened to have all the parts on hand, so I just needed a body to put it all together. When this one popped up on TGP, I grabbed it. Regarding knobs, each pickup has its own volume control, and the tone control is connected to the bridge pickup only. I had to use a mini pot on the tone control to have enough room in the cavity.
