Strings are on. I need to tweak the fret ends and finish tuning the nut but it feels. I am amazed that it is not brighter. It has a bit of darkness to the sound that was unexpected. I will know more tonight when I fire up the Mark IV. The mini humbucker turned out nice the alnico 8 offsets the cover on the HB. It has a real growl to it and cleans up perfectly, I think I can live with only one pickup. It is raining here so the lighting is bad.

More grainy shots... need sunlight.

  1. I'm not surprised in the tone at all. The sapele guitar I made (and later disassembled) was very bassy and dark. The EXACT same pups in a cherry-bodied guitar is super-bright.
