    For me it was completely different than what I was used to, and it made me think and play differently. I liked the change so much, that I abandoned my strats. They haven't been out of their cases since October 14 2014.

    Now I'm waiting for my second Jazzmaster to ship.

    Hold on there Monte. Those marriages never really work out. She has all the curves and the buttons and feels great and makes sweet sounds. But when she wants you to get rid of old friends... well I am a polygamguitarist. You can love more than one.

    It did turn out beautiful.

    That looks awesome!
    By the title, I almost expected birdseye maple though.

    @fezz parka - the Bad Bob plays very nice with the bridge pickup (the other settings too, but the bridge pickup becomes very useful with the BB at 1030, 11 o'clock)

    Best pedal ever the Bad Bob. Just gives you more of what's already there.;)

    WOW! LOOKS GREAT and looks like it would play great too! Are those pickups p90's? Standard for that type of guitar? I've only ever had P90s in one guitar I owned but they were friggin' awesome!

    BEST wishes with it- sounds like you're already 'bonded'!

    well here's me playing it, just winging it really, on a backing track - this is the rhythm circuit with a bit of delay.
