Re: The New Custom Axe - DONE! w/pics

Thing looks like a beast!!! Looks like a cross between a jem and a PRS. That may just be because of the wood choices. I've always been a fan of lots of maple. I'm interested in your pickup choices, Correct me if I'm wrong but you've chosen the air norton for the bridge position? I've never heard of them going in bridge position. Not as high output right? Probably more of a vintagey sound. Looks very versatile regardless.

Re: The New Custom Axe - DONE! w/pics

Sorry folks, hvnt been keeping up with the site. Jemwielder, where in Boston are ya at? I'm here too .

Athlon, thanks for the comment. It is absolutely my dream axe, but some people prefer more stripped down guitars (although this one is certainly stripped down wood wise, all natural wood with no paint). Thanks Dino for your comment .

Riverdragon, I would but theres nowhere to do it where I'm at, lest i take my guitar in the middle of the street, which isnt happening haha. Perhaps when I get back home to New York I can do that.

And Jemwielder, its an Air Norton in the NECK position (coil tapped), a cruiser in the middle, and an Evo 2 in the bridge position (coil tapped). I play primarily instrumental rock ala Andy Timmons and Steve Vai and such, and progressive metal. The evo 2 does a fantastic job covering a wide tonal palette, the air norton is my fave neck humbucker, and the coil tapping gives me all the cleans I'll ever need.
