Working on some advanced circuitry: mid pup always on, toggle for neck/bridge, one volume, one tone, passive 'black ice' fuzz switch, a 9v distortion knob, and maybe a piezo. I hope I have room to mount all the controls

Toad,

Thanks for the Friend req! Sorry if I didn't answer right away; our Net access has been spotty the last couple days.

Uncle Toad, I'm back on the grid after being at the house up North with no internet, and saw your comment on the DoublHandy.
