This one's taken a while to get finished. I bought the neck blank um... about 4 years ago. Had the neck carved umm... about 2 1/2 years ago. Ordered the body in ummm... August of last year. Finally completed the guitar ummmm... Last night around 1 am. I posted some in-process pics a while back, but it's finished now. I couldn't quite figure out if this post should go in "General" or "Small Company builders," but I figure since this is my 2nd guitar ever, and USA Custom is a small company, this probably qualifies for this side of the tracks. Specs: Body: USACG Hollow Carve-Top T - Honduras Mahogany 1-piece back, Wild (flamey, quilty) top Finish: Reranch nitro (pre-stained, etc.) Neck: Brazilian Rosewood (fingerboard from the same piece as the neck), tiltback headstock, Godin style inlays Bone nut (If you look closely, you can see Matt Artinger's trademark scallop on the nut in between the string slots) Tuners: Sperzel Sound-Lok (open back design) Bridge: Hipshot Baby Grand (had some issues with this, but sent it back to Hipshot and eventually got it all settled) Pickups: WCR Crossroads neck, Darkburst bridge Controls: 3-way, VVT (push/pull coil tap on the tone) The tone is pretty huge. I've heard some people describe guitars with rosewood necks as having "more of everything" in terms of frequencies. This guitar definitely seems to live up to that. It has a very full bottom end, with absolutely no loss of highs, which are in fact quite crisp - not edgy, but bright. It seems to have rounded mids that sustain for quite a while, even unplugged. (I'm no good at describing tone, but I'm trying.) The in-between setting really seems to bring out the hollow nature of the guitar, and definitely has a woody sound to it - hard to describe. The bridge seems like it can get a bit of a jangly sound, but it's still full. The split sounds definitely offer some versatility and different sounds (which I like a lot), though with this configuration (body and neck woods) I wouldn't necessarily call them traditional single coil tones. Here are some final pics: The Starship KaBudokan shot (I'm pretty sure you can see the curve of the top on THIS one... ): Full-Frontal, so you can see the new truss rod cover with the body: The front of the headstock: Back of the headstock, so you can see the open-back Sperzels and the new gold buttons: A full back shot: A shot of the neck: A little closer, so you can see the grain and how the neck and board blend: Side shot where you can see the side of the maple cap. I didn't want to do a faux-binding on this one, but I wanted it to stand out some, so I decided not to do the burst on the side, so the sides match the center. Another top shot: And finally, another magic floating guitar picture: Hope ya like it! I'll try to get some clips recorded sometime this week.
