    Direct mount....no ears on this pickup.....Orange is the obvious color choice......but it will/could go another direction.....have not really made any decision on colorcoat.

    A gift of hacked up REM,NUGE and Chuck Berry riffs.....but minus the hack-o-billy this one does record and sound great......FUN guitar...lots of cool tones in a simple setup.

    Some clean tones and otherwise less than marginal playing using my Company Car "ArmyGreenKustom"....Pinebodies with thin finishes just sound good.

    Sorry JW,still sportin' the BIG GOOFY headstock.

    Hey, can you give me the link to the build on the green guitar you are playing? I love the finish... think I'd like to do the same... just with brown.

    Did you use any grain filler on this one, or just the stain & the nitro? Looks great! It's making me want to go with a more vibrant yellowy or orangey color for my ash tele build. I'm thinking Minwax Water-Based Wood Stain "Lemongrass":
