The body and neck were made by Craig Parker, aka bluemule here at RUKIND. Beautiful work! Craig routed out the pickup, control and battery cavities. Craig also drilled the bushing holes for the bridge and the holes for the tuners.
I glued and set the neck, finished the wood, drilled all the control holes etc. The pickup ring, selector switch plate, and output jack plate were made by Scarlet Fire Guitars.
Rosebud wiring with Waldo's pre/buffer.

I lost the original photo's, but I finally got around to taking a couple of photos after I refinished her and after having the wrap around bridge replaced with the Kluson harmonica bridge and tailpiece by milobender (http://www.iocustomguitars.com). Brian (milobender) did an awesome job. He also tweaked the nut. Plays great and IMHO sounds better with the bridge and tail as opposed to the wraparound bridge. Looks better too!

Thanks, Mike! I'm really enjoying it. :smile:

I made a few short clips of me playing along with this very cool Not Fade Away (jam) backing track I found.

I'm not sure why, but soundcloud seems to lower the volume or something. So, ya have to crank it thru a good stereo or use headphones to hear it well.

1968 Twin Reverb blackfaced, Jerry mods and Maestro mods > Mc2100 (no sentry monitor). Recorded the room with a Tascam DR-05.
