    Default A couple of electrics

    Next on my list to build are a couple of electrics; a left-handed e-mando and an e-OM.
    The body of the lefty has a really nice figured sapele top.

    Iím still thinking about the final design of the octave, so more on that one soon(ish).
    Cheers Gary

    Cool.

    Specs for the lefty?
    What pickups are you putting in? (Single coils apparently )

    This e-mando will have two blade style mini-humbuckers; I’ve used these on all my e-mandos and like the ability to be able to simply switch the configuration of the coils and get two different tones. It will also have a piezo transducer under the saddle for an “acoustic” sound. They’ll be wired up to a stereo out-put.
    As it’s a custom build the nut will be 33mm and the scale 360mm to suit the client.
    Cheers Gary

    The neck has been glued to the body- I use a large mortice joint and to be doubly sure that it’s never going to move, it’s locked in place with 4 hardwood dowels.
