    It has a great bottom end, very loud when played unplugged. Its very articulate, especially since I usually play with alot of gain, you can hear every note clearly. The WCR pickups are freakin amazing!! Coil tapped they sound closer to a single coil than any other pickups Ive heard. I cant wait until my Splawn Pro Mod comes in to play this through.

    Right On!! Im getting a Lucky Charms Leprechaun truss rod cover to go with it!!:D A little laughy laugh for my benefit.

    The knot has a story as well. My dad after 30 years of working and supporting My Mom, Sis, and me got a boat he's always wanted. Big , huge, behemoth, like 34 ft. or something. It can sleep like 9-10 people. So we obviously have Irish lineage, and he named it "Celtic Voyager". Since Im a graphic designer, I came up with the logo on the back of the boat. This is the knot I used for the logo. Since my dad taught me my first songs on guitar, I thought it would be cool to use the same knot in his honor on my guitar. So it's a fairly personal guitar all around. The Lucky Charms TRC just shows my rampant silly streak!!

    Thanks for the compliment!!!

    Where in Alabama are you?

    Nice guitar, BTW, and I like the headstock as well.
