Guitar #008 

Walnut Solid Body Electric with Flame Maple Neck

Keeping it simple.

The old style tone controls associated with passive electronics work by cutting frequencies.  That means you're cutting sound if you  move the control away from wide open ( #10 on the dial).  Nowadays most electric guitar players use all sorts of toys, either on the floor or on a rack.  So the question is, why would you want to cut sound at the guitar?  You won't with this axe. 

This guitar's got tons of balls, clean sound or gritty, with just one pickup, and one switch, clean and simple.  With a bridge position DiMarzio PAF dual sound pickup, you get all the power you could want, and a single pot to control it.  Rotate for volume, pop the knob up for that clean single coil type of sound, or push down for full-on humbucker power.
