Latest reviews

Pros: She's well worn, and feels wonderful in the hands
Between the 6-way toggle switch and various push/pull switches, the tonal possibilities are endless
She has a "shred" and "chug" mode rather than a "rhythm" and "treble" mode
She goes to 11!!!
Cons: She has definitely been dinged up over the years, which isn't everyone's cup of tea
This guitar is my baby, and as you can tell, I've put a lot of time into customizing her

The string butler is great!
I've bought a TP6 tail piece, too, and I'm looking to install a Kahler behind-the-nut locking system. The Kahler, as well as the headstock attachment tool for the necessary hex wrenches, are both in the mail. I'm pumped!!!
