I must be losing my mind. I could have sworn I responded to this earlier and said that it looked great and that I wish you were closer to me so I could hear it in person.

Well the Ibanez Super 80 is really the key with trisound. Trisound means Single, Hum and out of phase. With the bridge pickup out of phase and the guitar set to the bridge pup. It nails the Weir sound. I believe bob utilized a middle single coil to cancel out the bridge pickup from 60 cycle hum.

Thanks Dozin. Is there an "easy" way to take a pickup out of phase. For instance, on my Alembic Tribute? Or on the Schecter Hollwbody? I like the Schecter for the old woody tone sound but mostly we like to play around in that late 70s world and I use the Tribute for that with the Heritage Patriot. For bigger places, I also add the BF Fender Super running out of the stereo out on the UE400. I can get really close. But I am be bedazzled/befuddled/besomethinged on the "out of phase" deal and would love to learn how to make that.
