              If you want to keep the dibs after seeing the pics, just quote this post and we'll sort it out!

              Guitar 7.
              X.

              My view on what an X could be if I had it my way. Ok, this one is fairly lightweight but c'mon this one is so small and has such a slim neck and tiny headstock, how can it be anything else but lightweight?

              Korina body, wenge neck, Custom/59 hybrid bridge and neck I believe? Fat, roaring and just way too 'Europe' for its own good. Unfortunately... gathering dust. This was just a demo and prototype, testing templates and finishing methods, and the neck was a left over. If you take a close look at the heel you'll see there's a weird horizontal slot. That was an error. That's the reason this one can't be sold. I cut that slot too deep. I could (have) reshaped that heel completely and made it blend in with the body but the body was done before the neck and I just didn't bother anymore haha! The slot is only a few millimeters deep and this guitar is already 5 years old. This thing won't move. I promise you. If you are really uncomfortable with this, I could find a piece of wood (perhaps a contrasting material) and fill it, But so far, never had an incentive to do anything.

              AWESOME! Yes, I want this axe for sure!

              I'm just blown away. Can't thank you enough, Orpheo.

              Words fail me.

              The pink Strat looks fabulous - beautiful piece of ash in back.
              And the Vee is gorgeous too. Forum bro d1dsj got himself a beauty.

                This guitar is still up for grabs! Slight miscommunication from my end. I'll make a photo of the headstock today.

                    Pink strat.

                    This is a chunky axe. Thick neck, no tummy cut. Buttery low action and a smooth trem system that can be set up floating too. This axe is close to 4.2 kilo's I think. But not a lightweight by any stretch of the imagination.

                    I will not give these pickups away! I'll install something 'normal' because these pickups are really amazing.

                    That's a pretty guitar! How do those single coil PATBs sound? I've always been fascinated with them.

                      Guitar 6.
                      Amber V. Black korina body, ziricote neck, ebony board. The neck is slim and fast. I made an error once with the tailpiece, there's a photo of that. I plugged the hole but it's still visible and that's why this one is unsellable. I will have to recess the tailpiece, though, to improve the break angle. Once again: I won't ship this one with these pickups. They're some of my favorite PAF's and I'll install a random set of Duncans I have in my parts bin, unless you would prefer I didn't install any pickups because you prefer to do something yourself. And yes. That neck pickup's mounting ring overhangs the body edge. Long story... don't ask.

                      For obvious reasons, I don't have a case or gigbag for this one, muahah! But I do have a great box, packing foam and packing peanuts.

                            The Jem style is gone. Sorry. The HSS pinkish strat with the parallel axis pups is still available though!

                                Hey,

                                this guitar just got snatched up, but to answer your question:

                                the PASTK's (Parallel Axis STacK!) sound like great single coils but without any hum. They do have that sparkly, chimey thing I like. I still want to rewire them so I can have the tops of these pickups in series like a humbucker in one setting of the toggle and in the other, it's 'normal'. Will be difficult to pull off but it will also be totally worth the effort I think. After all, these are 4 conductor wire.
