Awesome, congrats!

I've been in love w/ my monkeypod Doheny since I grabbed it a while back, amazing sounds, feels, and looks and quality better than every Fender CS JM I've tried. In most instances it's become first among my JMs for me. Was really intrigued when they started teasing these V12 versions, glad to hear they did as great a job w/ them as I would have expected.

Wow, because of your guitar I've just spent about 20 minutes on the G&L website. They have it going ON!
What a great axe, it sure looks like a keeper to me.

Ooooo.... They went full F100 with the controls. Fucking nice.
The only thing I could ask for is a four-way tele switch, for Johnny Marr-style switching.

God, I hope they sell those Doheny V12 pickups someday.

They added the model to their regular custom order menu, so it’s possible they might sell the pickups.

You basically get the 4th position of Marr anytime because you can throw either pickup into parallel with a flick of the switch. It’s nutty

Well, the magic of the Marr is the neck and bridge in series, which is different than a neck or bridge pickup alone in parallel.

I misspoke- you can do that on the doheny as well. Each pickup has a coil split, series or parallel option.
