Check out this. It has some quirks, but it was fun to make and is fun to play. Thanks to Dale and the other builders!

It's very cool looking. What are you using as a pickup?

Looks fantastic! What wood is it? Did you make the buttons out of wood too? Cool.

I wound the pickup myself and scavanged the magnets from at $0.01 ebay strat pickup. The body, pickguard and nut are mahogany. The neck, bridge, pickup cover and volume knob are all Ohio black walnut. Just two boards and no plastic. The tuners have chrome buttons, but I think you've inspired me to make wood ones.

Sounds pretty good, the highs are a little weak, though. The way I have it set up now (I'm still tinkering with it) gives great dynamic response and a nice percussive chop. I'd post a clip if I had a mic, unfortunately ...
