    Tommy Cougar has now made me a GUITAR (he don't usually make guitars even if he's a trained luthier, i HAVE seen he's amps i hope)

    African Mahogany, maple neck, dark rosewood board, one pickup, a stacked volume and tone control and TONE FOR DAYS. (CLIP HERE and HERE).

    Looks great. Is that a mini hum? Is it Fender or Gibbbie scale length?

    I am suprised you went with Blue. I would have thought you were going to get a Burst this time.

    Looks cool. Is that a Warmoth neck? I only ask because I have a newer one with the truss rod adjustment on the side like that.

    It's a mini hum like the ones in a Firebird, rather low output about the sama as an Tele bridge PU. but GREAT sound, very shimmery high end. Fender scale..

    The neck might have started as a Warmouth, I'm not sure if Tommy bought a neck and custom countored it, slight V, or if he made it from scratch. Btw, stainless frets..

    You definitely like blue. :) Very cool fiddle. I'll bet it does the Bakersfield bite really well.
