Latest self~built guitar using Epiphone Casino pickups.

Here’s the latest guitar build I just finished. Basic stick in a box but sounds like a monster I think. What do you think?

Thanks Andries. Yes sir, sometimes loved ones know best for certain! It was a great birthday present. So now I got to figure out how to use the amp, a Boss RC30 looper station and my stomp pedal for overdrive all using my hands. Thinking about mounting the two pedals to the back of the wheelchair somehow and activating them with my elbows or something haha. I’ll figure it out. Thanks again my friend.

Thanks Nancy. Glad you like it. I called it a monster for the tone of these pickups. They just howl and snarl atcha haha. Great cat pic. Thanks again :o)

 Thanks DiglyDog. Glad you like the guitar and thanks also for your kind words on my playing. Manchester Blues has GOT to include a flat cap haha. It’s actually (apparently) styles on the TV hit series Peaky Blinders. I’ve never seen it but I did like the hat. Thanks again my good sir.

Nice work, Bear, that's an excellent build and your playing sounds great.  I like Manchester Blues look of the cap and shades as well ;-)

All the best,

Digly
