thanks you. I have been building for about a while now but befre this I built furniture. I have cme to gripps that I am not ging to be a great guitar player, So I might as well try to be a great guitar builder. So far I have had great feedback.

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.

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.
