    Just got the 28.6" scale Kronbauer maple jumbo on the right. Plays nicely. I might need to experiment with other strings. The D'Addario EXP baritone strings tuned to B-B are ok, but I feel like I might be able to do better.

    I need to sit down with my camera, take better photos, and learn how to use Flikr.

    It's a custom DGT, so should be pretty cool.

    I've got two inbound, a T-style from DNA guitars, Fralin PAF in the bridge and a Fralin mini-hum in the neck. Next is a chambered (no f-hole) T-style from Agape that will be visually different, the top wood is a spalted maple with holes and all kinds of "character marks" that Rich is going to figure out how to handle. Two different humbuckers in that one from McNelly.

    Classic Lentz. Look at the "eyes" by the middle rout. IMHO, an uber-cool one-piece lightweight ash body. Looks like three different pieces of wood - as if the grain is interrupted in the middle and then falls off the bass side of the body.

    Will look spectacular under that killer Lentz MK finish.

    killer guitar. I have one that is almost identical. the middle p90 is a thing of beauty. incredible tone. what kind of switching do you have? I have two 25.5 scale guitars that have a middle p90 and I use the middle pickup by itself a lot.

    The pickup switching is as below. Diverse sound you can get just by playing with the pickups and the volume/tone

    Switching specs.
    Tone control in the down position.
    1- Bridge
    2- Middle and bridge in Parallel
    3- Middle
    4- 5- Middle and neck in Parallel
    5- Neck
    Tone control in the up position,
    1- Neck and bridge in series
    2- Neck and bridge in series with middle in parallel
    3- Middle
    4- Middle and neck in Parallel
    5- Neck

    I use the middle on its own quite a fair bit as well.

    Nothing and dare I say pretty dang happy as is. Heck I need to sell a few or more (they are all so good to me) and get down to 4'ish.

    Doesn't mean there aren't a whole bunch on my list that I would love to have built by some of the greatest builders around. That particular list way too long to even begin to start mentioning names.
