I wanted to brag on this thing. I think I started collecting parts about four or five months ago, built Version 1 by grafting the neck from one guitar onto the body of another, and trying that version with a weird combination of the pickups that had come with those two guitars. I’m much happier with this version, which added about $70 to the build. Nicer pickguard/scratchplate, much better pickups, and it sings like—well, trust me, it sings. Rose sticker over the existing peghead logo looks strange, but it’s a start.
