An answer looking for a question?

One thing that niggles is the piezo EQ switch being break-before-make, meaning there's a brief silence while changing on the fly.

I like the idea of using magnets to secure the back. I've done that same thing with a trussrod cover. Probably will look into doing a similar thing with control cavity covers. The pickup change thing is very cool but in the end only a gimmick despite still being very cool. I wonder what the aluminum frame does to the mojo -- tone happens... I've played aluminum necks and totally aluminum bodies and was offended but to use aluminum as a structural enhancing method might be okay. If they pay attention to detail at the factory, this might be an awesome guitar.

Tone is in the lingers

It's very innovative for sure. I wonder about the price tag.

The tones (sans the piezo) sound like a hybrid SG & SHB. It has kind of a hollow sound to my ears.

wrnchbndr, it will be a very dark time for humanity starting on the day you stop making your wonderful (and sometimes delightfully different) instruments.

Been in a rut for inspiration. I have a dozen choice neck blanks of both maple/mahogany/maple and mahogany/maple/mahogany laminations just waiting for an idea to propel me through a build. They're all trued up with calculated grain orientation but I got nothin in my head. Waiting for the guitar gods or a youtube video to inspire me. I have a super heavy duty neon transformer and rubber gloves. I have new blades for the bandsaw and time on my hands. Considering a trip to South America to see a Shaman and converse with southern hemisphere spirits or taking a course to become a pastry chef.

You have a super heavy-duty neon transformer AND rubber gloves?

Why didn't you say so earlier?

Make a Lichtenberg guitar body.
