    Healy needs to call Lyon and get the band back together ... :P

    Seriously, it looks great. Is that an ash body? What's the scale length?

    The painted top is poplar, the rest of the body & neck are walnut. 24" scale, tuned FCGD.

    Very nice! Trevor does great work; he's fixed up a couple of guitars for me and I was able to play a couple of his acoustics.

    Who made the 4-pole pickups?

    Yeah I'm lucky to live just up the road from him. The pickups were made by Gemini out of Newburgh NY - a small (one-man?) shop from what I gather. P90s in mini-hb casings.
