Nice work on the guitar and the video, and thank you for the opportunity to build the pickups.

Here is the info about the pickups in this guitar:

The Neck and Middle are modified versions of my 69 Experience set. The
bridge is a modified with a tele bridge wind and the base plate that takes
it closer to tele bridge pickup construction by modifying the magnetic
field. The base plate is a proprietary custom design that matches the
mass of a standard tele base plate and is copper plated steel. All 3
pickup feature hand ground Alnico 5 magnets in a modified vintage stagger.
All 3 pickup are true hand scatter wound pickups with custom grey bottom
fiberboard that is logo stamped with the Arcane Inc. logo and Bochar as
well as serial numbers starting at 1.

Joe, that looks and sounds fantastic! Keep up the good work!

Rob at Arcane, I must try some of your pickups. They are the talk of town lately and I know Joe can't speak any higher about them.

The Supertone & Zetatone body size is about the same size as a Strat... with the exception of the length: approximately .5" shorter in length.

Joe, Great guitar. I know I always ask my wife, "Honey. Does this guitar make me look fat?" Something to consider.
