    Default Family portrait

    First off, let me apologize for the picture quality - doesn't hold a candle to CaptainBb's pictures! Still, here it is. So left to right:

    1. Warmoth one-piece swamp ash body, USACG fatback neck, Dimarzio PUps (a very recent change). This one is 20 something years old.
    2. USACG - alder/maple/RW, DiMarzios (again, a recent addition). The controls are, Master Volume, Master Tone and Fralin Blender. This one is about 5 years old.
    3. USACG - chambered African mahogany/flamed redwood body, mahogany neck/Madagascar RW fretboard. Pickups are HighOrder HBs and a Duncan Alnico 2 single coil in the middle. The tone control only works with the bridge HB, and the 5-way is a StewMac Mega Switch E (I believe). This is about 13 years old.

    I've been almost exclusively playing the redwood for the past 3 months after not having played it in about 5 years.

    That's an impressive trio!

    Did you build them yourself?
    I'm a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma.

    Oh no - I wish I had such good building skills! They were assembled and Plek'd for me by a highly respected luthier in Baltimore called Phil Jacoby. Anybody in this area looking for a good tech, I can guarantee that you won't find a better one.
