OK, first off a commission build for our very own maxgroover. Matt was very disappointed that I had the incident with the drill bit resulting in a cracked top but was equally happy with what he felt and heard a couple of weeks ago in Sydney when he had a chance to play the Reject. Long story short, I'll build another one.
35", 24 frets (with zero fret), 5 piece neck (three maple one of which is a central wedge, 2 wenge), neck-through, wenge board, angled matching amboyna burl headstock;
walnut body wings, light veneer layer, wenge contrast layer, and amboyna burl top - this one:
electronics: 2 Delano SBC 5 HE/S-E (matched pair), Glockenklang 3-band (because it has a passive tone roll-off option), three 3-way mini switches (one for each pu to have series/parallel/single, and one to switch pus neck/both series/bridge)
hardware: black Hipshot Ultralite short key Y, 3/8"; black ETS Tuning Fork single bridges, Dunlop Flushmount strap locks; black dome knobs
That's about it. Started preparing the timber (together with a few other builds - see separate threads) which is taking a little longer than expected. Looking forward to this one, will be interesting to hear the SBC pickups with the Glock pre.
And another thing: prompted by some background discussions I'm contemplating changing the name of this particular model - Kermit made sense for the very first green one but not for the others. Happy to hear suggestions if you have any.
