2014: Alder body, new body hardware, neck and tuners from 80s Ibanez RS1000 (heastock reshaped), Paul Reed Smith Dragon II pickups (bridge Alnico 4 13k, neck Alnico 4 8k)

Oct 16 2017: Mutating from Funkenstein to Swamp Thing...

 

 

 

best neck ever. had it since the late 80s, never found one as good. burns are old... gave up smoking in 1990

fist kill switch was flimsy and unresponsive, went chunky

and then... got some damage on the back and thought - 'relic'

and then thought - a coil-tapped one-humbucker Swamp Thing is what I need

a good jig enables anything... even reshaping a perfectly straight bridge slot with a round chainsaw file
