and what model DiMarzio are the humbuckers... or are we supposed to assume they are the Steve Vai model? :D :-?

"The usual" 2 Super 2s and an SDS. They are waiting for my Phiga Tiger to be done later next year, I'm going to do the electronics. I got one pickup from each of the special people in my life, to go into a special guitar ("Now isn't that speeeeecial?").

Patience, patience....

Congrats on the guitar build!

I owned a Phiga for a couple years. I loved it but wanted to build my own with some high quality woods so I sold it and had Resurrection build me an Eagle.

In my experience Phil is interesting to work with. Does he send you pics of the build? From what I have seen in the past and on his website and what I owned it seemed he uses standard maple verse flamed maple for the body and so on. This is probably why you see his Tigers for $3,500 and not the standard $5-$6k

I would love to see pics of the build

Good luck!
