Hey Thanks Jack,....for all the info, ..... well Im a sucker for the Hendrix, Vaughan, Rory Gallagher sounds, so I like your Idea of the fender 54/69 choices, I was a bit worried about the Idea of Fralins, in that I read quite few guy's who said they sounded great Vintage wise but they ended up changing them out anyway.....so I didn't want that, ........
I also like the Idea of going Hollow Alder and of course Love the Idea of Exotic top, now that I got one Im not sure I could order without...hehehehehheeh
Im gonna use Wenge even though I know it will color the tone just to add my own custom touch to it, I've been dreaming about that neck for sometime, Im preping my wife on the Idea and I may not get to order till later this year yet, but thats O.K., I broke her in on a Beauty that cost a few pennies the first time around so I don't mind if I have to wait a few more months to get the ball rolling.
I also preped her with the Beautiful Idea of building a guitar for every year we're together....hahhahaahahahah, as a token of our Love of course, so as the years go by we can take pictures together with my guitars in the background, showing our Love for one another..ahahhaahhh......
Hey John, Yeah I wouldn't want to wind my own simply because theres a bit of mystery and something special about pickups too me.
Even if they sounded better than anything I've ever used I would think they were lacking somehow....hahahahahhah
Pickups are one of those things I want to remain ignorant of, it helps me to keep that "theres something special about this guitar" Voodoo Vibe going.....hahahaahahah
