Nice! I've seen some great looking CS goldtops. Did you add any of the binding effect options: natural or white? A couple months back Jeff showed off one with the painted white binding and it looked so tough. Which pickups did you go with?

That is gonna be one bad@ss build right there. Definitely be curious to hear how that Gambale/Parallax setup is. I had considered it once but never went through on that build idea.

You know what I think I saw this vid a while back around the time it was posted. I totally forgot about it. Once Kiesel put out their own pickup comparison vid I have just been referencing that one. Thanks for sharing! Good stuff there.

Yeah not sure why they don’t push those pickups, especially the Gambale neck pickup

When you get a chance, could you pop a shot of that neck? Thinking about Maple/Mahogany or Maple/Limba.

Enjoy . . .
