I like it too. They really have a good eye they chose the dark stain. Good choice. I'm going with their stock pickupscas the stock PUs in the custom are performing SO well in the studio I trust the ones in the Duke will be even better. And the Evertune bridge in the Custom is AMAZING! I'm not sure what other word to use foe it. I am com Kerry thrilled and blown away by it. I did tracks all day through 3 different amps and I never touched another guitar all day. You have got to do yourselves a favor an put one on a guitar.

That guitar is looking fantastic so far....

The best choice for a black guitar IMO - black top with wood back and neck.

(Except for LP Customs of course)

Hope you like the guitar as much as the other ones. :)

I even like it better than a custom. Would have been nice to have pics of other stages of the build btw, really like to see them at work :D

All it needs now is the pickups. I decided to not put the dry Z's in as I like their pickups so much. So I have a few sets of dry Zs I'm selling. I'll have it in my hands Monday. Notice the nut is not bone it's Graoh Techs tusq which I prefer. Also will have Graph Techs Aluminum hardware. Which will most likely come off and Evertune will go on it. That bridge spoils you so much. It's just such a massive forward step for the electric guitar that there is no way to even put it into words. Once you have it you don't want anything else. And I'm so glad that I took the chance and got one.

He officially endorses them.

Personally I'd leave the Bacchus as is. Or have Bacchus put in on.

I wish I owned stock. If you knew me you would not question me with supporting companies. I am Extremly discerning and not impressed with most things so when something like evertune comes along I am blown away. I was very skeptical. But imagine never having to tune your guitar again till you change strings and this thing actually improved the chime to my guitar. So you lose nothing you gain the best intonation you have ever heard on a guitar and it never goes out of tune. It's almost unthinkable. Friken amazing. And THAT is why I endorse them. I didn't even consider endorsing them untill I used it on my guitar. And I still have to pay. So it's not like I'm on the pay role or something. Although i think i would be if they asked. The inventor of this thing is a genius. Period.
