Hands down one of my favorite guitars. Looks great can't wait to see it all finished. How much longer are you thinking?

I'm having the ibanez eq system made. I'm thinking 2 months now.

They say you can't have favorites... but I like the one on the right :)

Nope, not having twins. The one to the left is going to someone else here. Thanks for the compliment on the one to the right :-)

It was tough for me to decide on what to do for pickups in this guitar. I'm doing a replica of Weir's 87 Blackknife, should I do the traditional Bartolini's or break the mold? I had to think to myself what do I like? After doing the Cowboy experiment with a Strat and following immediately in love with it. I've decided to do it my way.

The Cowboy Hybrid


The pickups and bridge are already routed the rest is photoshopped but this is the game plan.
The pickups in the photo are not the ones that are going in the guitar. They were used for the template.

You'll have to bring your guitar with you. It'd be interesting how they stack up against each other.

Finally! The vintage Ibanez EQ system for the new guitar project. Holy crap that's a lot of parts!
