    I love seeing someone rout into a new guitar. It makes me realize I'm not the only one who does that.

    Nice job!
    I bet it sounds great. I love the Dragon 1's.

    How is it wired? Push/pull to kick in the NF pup?

    Sure thing. I use a Push Pull to split the Dragon Is (ala Custom with McCarty Switching) then I added a Push Push on the Vol Pot to engage the NF.

    Here are the different positions available.
    1. Full Bridge
    2. B & N
    3. Full Neck
    4. Split Bridge
    5. Split B & N
    6. Split Neck
    7. Full Bridge + NF
    8. Full B & N + NF
    9. Full Neck + NF
    10. Split Bridge + NF
    11. Split B & N + NF
    12. Split N + NF

    Here is an update.. I had the chance to play and open mic this week with this baby,., every one of the 12 sounds is 100% usable. It was a dream to play.. Especially through my PRS Perfect10..
