I recorded an album with my VIP 12-string

I recently assembled a 12-string with a hollow VIP body, as seen here. That got me thinking about whether I could do an entire album with nothing but a 12-string. The answer was actually no, I'd need two 12-strings - one acoustic and one electric. So the resulting album has this Warmoth build, a Taylor 752ce, a Kramer DMZ 5000 bass, and my trusty Nord keyboard. All the electric parts - whether played with a slide, run through ten effects, or harmonized to death were done on the same guitar.

Here are a couple of tracks that show off the VIP pretty well:
