If it were me, I'd either look for a guitar that fit my wishes or build one to suit (with the attitude of "why make me choose when I can have both"). This, by the way, is not currently comp ...

Is that a whizzer on top of a deluxe?

Yes - I made that about 10 years ago when I was on my Neil Young tone quest. It's all-analog and uses RC servos. It's controlled using three stomp switches o ...

Here's my first foray into airbrushing. This is the third time I've built this 4001 copy (I scrapped the other two for various reasons and used the hardware on this). I decided to make this a homage ...
