Turned out real nice and I hear the sound difference. How long did it take you to make this instrument?

Building it wasn't as much as a time taker as designing it.I spent an extra six months doing that..new forms,the bracing inside,having two different necks/scales into one bridge..proper room to play between them..not too large or too small,the electronics(finding,testing better different pickups than what came with the equalizer set),..almost everything had to be redone and reset up for the larger wider instrument.

I don't know ,Dan..appears you've been watching too much Korean TV lately.. :roll:

Nice little jam session, Cuz but I think the two guys on the left need to trade instruments to make them proportional ;)
