first off, I want to do a bit of a precursor introduction to my new friend
Joel at Cycfi Research
we are going to be talking about his pickup designs in the not too distant future
mainly I want to say that there is a lot of good and interesting ideas that for the main part I have found fascinating. the rest were just plain, garden variety awesome.
go to his site and have a look around
but first, let's have a look at his guitar
neck through construction, nice
close look at the body, carbon fiber, very good.....
look at the depth of the body, looks very sleek and comfortable
now look at this
the neck through from the bridge to the headstock is constructed with bamboo laminate! to top it all of there is a carbon fiber truss rod. brilliant.
rather than spoil the fun, I'll just direct you to the galleries to see this being built

plus for an extensive look at the full story behind this instrument
be sure to look at neck through construction.
