Lots to love about this one! Cheers AGP!

"Thanks George", probably the sound would best be described as a "Low Growler", but no Tone & Volume on this one the Humbucker is wired straight to the Jack, all the Beer Caps are recessed and for looks only :-D

I bet it plays AWESOMELY!!!  Great effort . . . and great work AGP.... Are those recessed tone/volume beer cap knobs on each side of that humbucker?

"Thanks Vinnie", and Yep! the Humbucker does give it a "Low Growl"  :-D
