    Awesome guitar, man!

    I'm a fellow late bloomer. Just started my first build a few weeks ago :)

    The Hannes bridge is amazing, though seemed a little tricky to fit. Now I've made the templates for fitting, another shouldn't be too much trouble. I'ts probably the most comfortable bridge I've ever used. I've got it connected to a hexpander and the piezo tracking is super fast. I only have access to a roland vg-88 which only has one piezo setting which sound a bit woollier than a gk 3 pickup. I know the newer roland boxes have many more piezo settings to choose from so I'm sure this would solve this problem - I'll have to wait to try one.

    Sorry I don't have an amp or any recording equipment at the moment and I'm not sure I should inflict my playing on the general public anyhow. It has SD pearly gates under those ebony PU covers which sound fantastic for blues/classic rock. I'm not really that happy with the 'both' PU position so I think I'll look into some kind of Peter Green phasing wiring for that.
