"Thanks" Jerry & 'UJ', wasn't sure what this one would sound like when finished, it's a bolt on neck, instead of a through the body type, so originally thought the sound might be a bit on the "Tinny" side, but was pleasantly surprised to find that it was probably best described as having a Bell like ring to it, also thought it might have had an un-amped Acoustic side, but sadly, very lacking in that department.

"Cum on feel the noize" Wow that looks like it would blow the ear drums off a crowd at an outdoor concert if the sun don't blind 'em with the reflection first. ~ Cracking guitar :))
