    Without further delay...here we go:
    Mongoose Special Hollow Mahogany, 3 Tyler P90's AL5 in neck & bridge, AL2 in middle. VTT Push-Pull on tone to add neck pickup. Mahogany vee neck, Braz board w/ no dots, extra fingerboard rolling. Hipshot tuners....
    Enjoy:

    Under natural light it looks a little more orange

    These hipshots feel alot smoother than the sperzels

    Didn't have any Creme material, so we used MOTO :lol:

    This is a good representation of the color

    Sweet, but I need to go back to 10's for this guitar, I put on some 9-46's and it felt a little plinky. The bridge pickup is ferrocious, but with plenty of spank and twang. neck middle is a really cool stratty sound as is neck bridge (more of a tele meets LP thing).

    neck on it's own is definitely reminiscent of a tele neck, I think I might have Jim wind the pickup a little hotter and brighter.

    It plays great, the vee neck is killer, you should get it on one of your upcomming fiddles.

    Nice. Never seen an orange one before. I like. Where's your dots man? I bet UPS dropped the case and they all fell off!

    I've been guitarless for a couple of months now. However my SE should be with me in a couple of weeks or so. Hopefully.

    Wow you know what? James Tyler guitars and me have gone from a hate to an extreme love. I really dig that shmear finish and the headstock just looks cool (thought I'd never say that...) the way the decals are applied.

    3 P-90s sounds like it'd be a lot of fun.

    WOW! That is amazing. Was that a special order? If not, where did it come from? And can you ballpark what you paid for it? (If you'd rather not, I understand)

    They should feel smoother, they have an 18:1 gear ratio as opposed to the Sperzel's 12:1. I recently ordered a set, I have yet to receive them. I'm glad to hear you like them. I may have to replace those buttons though, I'm not sure I like the way they look. Anywho...

    Gorgeous guitar, congrats. Three P-90s, that's sweet. Love the finish too. Enjoy.
