Took some pics yesterday, here are a few of them. might have to send in a few emails to “meet quota”. Use what you like. Thanks again.
Here’s my first Precision build- actually my first ever build! I like Jerry Garcia’s Wolf- but not a big fan of the body shape. However I love SGs, so why not…? I sent Phil a slab of purpleheart for the body blank and PGK did a knockout job adding the beautiful quilted maple cap and shaping the body. They gave me a “swimming pool” pickup rout and larger control cavity. I was really impressed with the quality of the wood and the construction. The neck was particularly well made and a treat to play. I took a chance on the “59 a bit less” neck cut and am really liking it (I’m used to thinner necks). My first time gluing in a neck and it went without a hitch.
The thing sounds great both acoustic and plugged in. It rings and sustains like a grand piano!
