Woah !! You have radiators in England. tongue.gif



Just kidding !

Nice axe and good looking thru-neck. But that cable output is in weird place. blink.gif

What are the pick-ups ?


The pickups are just factory standard Epiphone ones I guess smile.gif

The head stock looks a lot like the CAPARISON stocks I"ve seen, which are spiff! Yours is reversed of course wink.gif
Did you pattern it after a Caparison?
How much of this did you hand build? Are you a Luthier as well? For the headstock did you start with a standard neck and power saw or with a chunk of raw rood? Great finish too! Is the finish on the neck and body yours as well?

I custom designed my own headstock but I prefer a traditional 'soloist' shape. Whacky shapes aren't my thing, ya dig? hahah.

You're dad and I have something in common... here is the axe I just built... I am working on her twin now smile.gif

She has different pickups and I've added a sustainer/eq unit instead of a tone knob... but she's getting worked on because I didn't drill the holes for the bridge right and had some tuning stability issues. Once she's back together I'll take new pics.

Hope you don't mind if I show ya...

I've been cheating on my Ibanez with Minarik and ESP. Such Mistresses! Time consuming, twitchy, and unpredictable but when they do behave it somehow makes it worth it smile.gif
