This guy is a crappy player, but a better builder. Ted's Stonehenge pickups made me smile, I love the sound of them. This video is in standard tuning, so it's not going to sound like our CBG's. I have very little playing skills, I will not hide that, some of my friends wanted to hear my V that I built, so here it is, just ignore my mistakes, there are plenty of them. But I do love the sound of them pups Ted.
