NGIB = New Guitar I Built

The trim is purple heart wood.
The cherry is from a tree in my back yard
The maple is from the gym floor they tore out of the school where I coach.

Sounds pretty good tome.

AMAZING!  WHAT PICK UPS ARE IN IT?

You can plug into a Marshall, but if you are not attacking it,  it's just going to sound so-so.  If the song doesn't grove, you are just bashing through chords” .

Re: NGIB

Thank you all.  To me it sounds really good.
Beamer - I wish you were here to thrash on it to really see what it can do.
It has Seymour Duncan SH1's - a.k.a.  Vintage Blues humbuckers.   They growl very nicely, but also play so smooth on the lower volume end
