    I wish they made two piece pickguards for thin lines. I had to hack my own.

    Alder body with a ash top, Duncan 53 tapped bridge pickup, seperate bridge and pickup ring. Rutters straight comp saddles, unknown neck pickup and a Richie Kotzen neck. I'm thinking of getting a pickguard with no pickup route and mounting a Duncan Secret Agent pickup in it. Any thoughts? Thinline esquire?

    If you're looking for suggestions... I was talking about 'broadcaster wiring' on another thread. I've been enjoying that on one of my guitars lately.

    Love the green!

    Do you mind if I ask...why the 2-piece pickguard?

    Nice DaveC. I just finished these two. The fretless was kind of born out a mistake I made with the f-hole.

    I have diabetic neuropathy with really bad problems with numb fingers and nerve pain. I cant hold a pick but if Django made it work then maybe I can do something too.

    Nice job. She looks beautiful. I feel your pain on the hand issues. I have nerve damage in my fretting hand that makes my pinky almost useless and causes general weakness. I've gone to using a set of 7s on most of my guitars as a result. It helps.

    Has anyone made a kind of reverse Esquire Thinline? By that I mean instead of one bridge pickup, just a neck pickup. Maybe a p90. Kind of a jazz box tele.

    I'm OK with having the smaller guard. Can show more of the nice wood.
