Looks nice :thumbs

You can leave that Super3 inside as well, it's almost identical to Duncan Distortion tone-wise.

Thx man!! here is a updated pic,still need the middle aps1 pup and lookin for the standaed fender labeled knobs in black,i like lower profile knobs,i have the orignal set,but they ride to high when im galloping sometimes turn the volume dial down,lol.

one day when a lefty neck pops up ill nab it,but untill then well,this is what ive got,thought about a muscikraft neck holy grail style,but just dont know how that wld look with the large soloist body??

Dont think beak wld right either but it might just be the ticket,rosewood board and have hienz matched the paint he already did to the body with kramer pacer custom in black n gold script airbrushed on the headstock??

No beak IMO, that would look rather strange on that sharp-edged body. Pointy all the way :headbang
