    I wish they would make an SE24 with regular neck carve, I'm not a W/T fan... I'm debating a Tim Mahoney... on one had, it has the stop tail and 24 frets... I could see myself dropping in American HFS/Vbass and a vol/5way/sweet switch rig... would sound kiiilllller.. BUT.. I don't dig the poweder blue and the W/T... I dunno

    Nice, Hans... but the nut would still be too wide for my short fingers... So... shave the sides of the neck down, refret because the frets are now too wide, reshape back with bondo... guess I would then have to send it off to paintguy for a metaling.... then, of course, American pups and early wiring harness... BEst replace the SE bridge with American bridge, slap some Phase IIs on there... hmmmm I think this SE is approaching PS $s soon

    Looks great!
    -I'm no expert, but it seems to work and I haven't electrocuted myself yet. Which is pretty much the standard I live by.

    Not a blue guitar guy but that's real purty...have to see the tobacco burst in person, but might just like the blue better...

    How do the pups sound tapped?
