Yeah, I love koll's semi-acoustic glide models, he did a bright red one with white binding, a semi-translucent finish and chrome hardware that is/was extremely hot.
They tried to give me advice, down at the record shop. I said "Sit down boys, this may come as a SHOCK. But alls I listen to, it's all freedom rock."

Nice looking Tele. How is the Geiger Counter? It looks interesting.

Its great if you like noisy 8 bit tones, bit crushing that can get wild and crazy. Its for you. SOme decent ring mod too.
Ton of sounds out of this thing. Which is its downfall. Just too overwhelming for me. And no real way to save your settings.

I actually ended up selling it.

Going through some downsizing to focus on playing/technique for a bit.

only thing i have left from that board is the goatkeeper and polytune.

this has a hot rails in the bridge and a gibson p90 in the neck, it started life as a squier fat tele

Image

this i just bought from andrew and it is getting a bound conversion neck that is sitting beside me (also andrew's)

Image

may eventually put a p90 in the neck. but for now i need to get the thing set up to be tuned like a ukulele...

ebgdDE

the usual d will actually be like nashville/12 string tuning (high e tuned one step lower), with the a string being the standard D string, and the low E being a standard low e that could be dropped to D if needed. basically if you capo at the 5th and strum the high 4 strings you get a ukulele, and you can have more fun with the low 2 strings. I'm sure there is all kinds of other weird things you could do with the tuning, but first things first i need to have a nut cut for the neck and get the tuners installed.

Finboy, I made up the "cabronitish" pickguard template, and am just awaiting GFS's shipment before I can get this thing on it's way to you!

Here are mine, I'm pretty sure I've shown them around quite a bit, but this first one just got a new neck, pick guard, and pickup cover.

Image

and here's the 12 string Tele:
Image

AND TWIIIINS!
Image

And then here's the guitar my Girlfriend's Dad built and gave to me. I of course did my own mods to it. But it's a 1 piece spalted maple body, maple neck / rosewood fretboard. Has some Wild Bill Keystone pickups in it too. Sounds absolutely awesome. Really alive feeling.
