    Having seen this one in person, I have to say that it is an AMAZING finish. The fade is perfect and the color is to die for.
    Too many and never enough...

    Very, very nice!

    How are these to play? Is the shape awkward at all, or does it free you up in a way?

    It provides the best access to the top frets of any guitar I've ever played. It plays fantastic. Really fantastic. I've often considered trying to get another one.

    I remember when they came out, called WW to inquire about the price, and just wasn't ready. One has to wonder if they'd become a production item, but yours looks like a sweetie! :mrgreen:

    I doubt they'd ever go into production, but they may be available as a PS shape when the initial run is completely sold out? Who knows, just a guess...

    Re: Dweezils! Let's See Them!

    How about some imaginary Dweezils?!? I've been messing around with a few variations on that body style with photoshop.

    Original Pic



    Shifted volume knob, removed mini switches



    Same as above, but with 408's

    That's my charcoal beauty. I considered carefully the 408's but opted not to go that route for 2 reasons: 1) With the odd shape of the 408's you are kinda stuck with them if you ever decided to swap them. 2) I have only seen white plastic mounting rings for the 408's and everything else on the guitar is ebony. If you want to see a Dweezil cut PS with 408's then a jade one can be found in the sold private stock section of Willcutt's website. I am very happy with the 59/09's, and doubt that I will ever swap them. For a higher output pickup they have superior definition, articulation, serperation, clarity, punch, and TONE! Yes the 408's split sweeter than anything else existing at present, but my rigs have always included a footswitchable path around the split/tapped pickup volume drop. So simultaniously stomping a footswitch while flipping a switch or push/pull has never been a hassle to me. Keep dreaming though....that's why they're called "Dream Gtrs"!!!!
