    So my 08 Robot has been returned to her intended state of all manual. She sports a set of Seymour Duncan Antiquities which is cool, but I am thinking a little different....

    So these came in today....

    So Rachel (aptly named after the Replicant in Blade Runner)

    Will get the P90’s (black covers and I have a black P90 pickguard enroute)

    The Antiquities will go into an R7 Goldtop (I’m awaiting receival of).

    And lastly the PAF Tyson Tones will go into this little gem I’ve been putting on the back burner for a bit, but now is her time...

    One out of 3 done!!!
    This is an aluminum body cut from a single piece of billet from Drewman Guitars. They provide all the screws for the body, strap buttons and pickup rings. It comes with 2 holes for volume and tone, but I drilled it for the current set up. The name and the headstock “badge” is because of the serial number issued to the body, D10003 which I was told was the 3rd one made.
    The Tyson Tone pups in here are a bluesmans dream! The guitar acoustically is also very bluesy. It’s a gem of a guitar.

    The aluminum LP is awesome.
    How about one in transparent aluminum?

    For as twangy and Tele-ish as it is, I’m going to leave it as is.

    Think Jerry Reeds “Amos Moses”
