Just to point out a few; I find it rather odd that the pickup is mounted in such a way. There are no holes in the neck for the three screws normally used to adjust the height of the pickup (that's u ...

Not to drift too far off topic but how close are the Telonics pickups (I forget the model number) to the original Crap Traps? I imagine they're pretty close sound-wise...

The tuning is not really that different. Just the 9th string D is tuned down to B and the 10th B, tuned down to E. Other than that low E string, you're not missing any notes with a standard E9. I'd th ...
