Does that Bigsby have a piece of wood installed on the top? If so, did you buy it like that or do it yourself? I've never seen anything like that before.

Welcome to our corner of the internet. I especially like that last picture.

How long have you been building for?

The only other builder I've seen that uses Alumitone pickups is Mike Sankey, here in Ottawa, though he doesn't combine them with other types. Not to ignore the luscious woodwork, but did the combining of an Alumitone and humbucker pose any issues?

no not at all. The alimitone and a seymour duncan JB or Gisbon burstbuckers 3 are a great combination.

I have only been building guitars for about a year but I grew up building furniture. building a musical instrument I believe pushes your wood working knowledge and skills.

I plan on it. I have sold three guitars to three very very happy customers. My goal is to build not get rich and to perfect my craft. Every time I start a guitar my goal is to build the perect guitar. I haven't achieved that yet so I will continue to try.
