Warwick uses those threaded inserts for their pickup screws.

That's a clever trick that never occurred to me.

I use threaded inserts for the Thunderbird pickups, too. (Post#164 on this page http://bassoutpost.com/index.php?topic=9273.150)

The Lowe Universal Ring and Rout allows any instrument to be fitted with a wide variety of pickups by Lindy Fralin Pickups, Lollar Pickups, and TV Jones:

I've been busy finishing up a bunch of builds.

At times I feel like Dr. Finklestein.

Thanks, Rob!

Are we friends on Facebook?

I'm having an open house in Oldsmar next weekend if you care to make the trip.

Another shot from Joe Sanders' visit, this time with the red Fireluxe NR.

This guitar is currently fitted with Fralin high-output humbuckers and coil splitting Bourns 500K volume and tone pots.

It's possible this might be the coolest picture ever.

I've known these two guys since...forever.

This is the first time we have hung out and jammed.

Just one of those things.

I know some folks were losing sleep over the seeming lack of basses in my current production run.

;)

Have no fear, another first is here.

Satin white with matching neck and headstock face and faux binding on the body.
