    Warmoth Clapton V maple neck fully scalloped, custom wound MHD humbuckers and a fender 69 in the middle.

    Aged all over by MJT.

    I freaking love it.

    Worth the wait as I paid for everything way back in March, haha. Feels like the culmination of many years of trying guitars to see what I like. Just feels like comfy home.

    I must say as well – the relic job is pretty impressive! And where did you get the tuners, if you don't mind me asking? They're like the 70s Mustang type, if I'm not mistaken?

    I thought “offensive, doubt it.” But by god, you did it!

    What greater guitar joy is there than discovering what you like and then having it all brought together? That’s what partscasters can do and I hope you thoroughly enjoy this one!

    It is a neat little lever dealie made by Timara. Flicks between drop d and standard with the flip of a lever. It just bolts on using the tuner nut and some screws for position. I have them on 6 guitars and can't imagine going back to not having it.

    The tuners are just standard gotoh tuners. Black with ivroy keys. My biggest challenge here was that I failed to consider that I would need left handed tuners and the limited selection that would give me.
