This guitar sounds even better than it looks. The Fralin P92's produce Gentle clear, articulate clean tones and when over driven, roars like a Jack Hammer. Star grounding, Double Shielded control and p/u cavities along with the P92's deliver all these tones without 60 cycle hum.
"This guitar won't hum even if it knows the tune"

Onboard Effects Loop and Jangletone Unity Gain Buffer provides greater control over effects without tone degradation from long cable runs.

This guitar is so special I have included a custom fitted All suede and leather premium case.

Also included is a 12' TRS stereo cable for the OBEL and a HubBub cable hub for connecting OBEL equipped guitars to pedal board.

77 lbs? Heavy fucker. Nice looking. But playability is going to be hampered with that awful string alignment. You should have set the tone pros bridge straight. Plenty of travel on the saddles to intonate correctly without compensating with that angle. Little pricey already given the materials but the bridge issue needs to be dealt with....

Otherwise, very pretty!

otherwise it is just teasing and I can get that at home.
I know I know!
Tried it at a Cubensis show Tues. It smoked! The show was recorded so I am waiting for the showman to get me some clips.

In the meantime you can dig Cubensis play 2 of my other guitars. Note the great Jerrytone and Bobbytone: ... 666FCD850C

Clips of the new one will be soon
