    So you are Mike Sweeney. I have been coveting that guitar since it appeared on Creston's site a few weeks back. I may do one exactly like it for my next guitar. Where are you in Esastern PA-I am in the eastern Montgomery County area, not far from Montgomeryville. Is the neck back painted too on yours?

    That is a great guitar. He is building mine right now. How do you like the pickup?

    Thanks everybody. Yeah, the price was definitely fair, and Creston is a great guy to work with. The pick up is fantastic- it's a special designed Lollar P90 with better aligned pole pieces spacing for a Tele style bridge.

    Todd I'm up in Bethlehem... oh, and no paint on the back of the neck.

    I've been trying to get together with a buddy of mine to jam in a warehouse in Harleysville for ages- that would be perfect if we ever get it together., But, I've been spending my weeks in CT (indefinitely) so my weekends seem to slip right by without me even knowing it. Can't believe it's Sunday night! If I get down your way one of these weekends, I'll drop you a line in advance.
