Think the only thing I like on it is that pickup:

"trailer park chique." hey, i think i met her once.

why would you fuck up the fingerboard like that and leave the headstock pale and unmolested? and what the actual fuck is that bridge-and-tailpiece, erm, system???

Dat pickup is great, but the use case lacks righteousness (preaching to the choir).

I get that some people like a relic'd look, but shouldn't it at least minimally look like it was played? That just looks like it was sitting *underneath* the dock of the bay (with it's headstock in the air pocket) for a while :eek: :lol:

I just can't understand what's the point of doing something like that.
Besides the horrible aesthetics, what's that suppose to do to sound? :idk:

Man I have no idea what's happening in that pickup route. I thought it was a weird handmade pickup housing but it's two pots and some fairy magic :idk:

Yeah, volume and tone pots mounted by the pickup. Not very accessible. "Tone button" on the pickguard.

No idea what the builder was thinking. :idk:

Probably less sustain than usual due to that trapeze tailpiece. It's just a weird homemade guitar. :rock:

Wait, those are the volume and tone pots under the pickup? I've been trying to figure out what those were, but I couldn't

Wow, I must have missed those when I checked out the posting earlier. But, seriously, why? Those are so inconvenient!

I kinda like that guitar, it's charmingly odd :lol:
I'm drawn to the DIY roller pots.
They're dreaming if they seriously expect $2000 though.

I like the idea of DIY roller pots, but would prefer them somewhere accessible, not under the strings
