#51, Sophie. 25.5" scale retrofuturistic 6-string. Experimental single coil and humbucker that I build with parts supplied by MGB (maybe he'll offer them for sale in the furture?). LED sound-sensitive backlighting for the vacuum tubes. And to top it all off... a vial of murcury... because liquid metal is cool.

So what else does it do? Detect UFO's ?

Not a bad weight at all, then.

Comment by Korrigan on April 13, 2021 at 7:46pm

Thanks John! And no, it's not heavy. Including the strap it weighs exactly 8lbs, the same as the average Strat.

That thing is cool, but I bet it weighs 15 pounds!
