Gotta check/fix that switch or pickup first. Position 3 sounds extremely thin, not like my Maverick

The only difference is the decal. Would still like to hear both though.
Get on it, Pat!

Alright but lemme wait for the pickup covers to arrive, and then I'll check the wiring again.

It could be just me, but I feel the Mav neck is easier and more comfortable to play than the Custom. The latter one feels much more "round"/curved. Dunno.

I don't have those radius measuring thingies (wasn't there one to print out?), but it'd be interesting to see if they're the same.

Custom definitely has a modded XII neck, the Maverick is purposedly made. 🤔

...looks like 12AUG66R?

...also an R in the neck pocket - for Reshape or so, maybe? 🤔

Nice one(s) Pat! :whistle: Congrats!
If I may ask: How many guitars do you currently own and what do you do for a living to afford them all? And also: do you have a band and what is it called? Would love to hear/see some of them one day!

Nah in the last couple years I've only been picking up cheapo MIJs (and some new Squiers) in the €50-200 range. How many...? Dunno, a couple dozen maybe? :ph34r:

My band here kinda never took off (again the singer quit and covid put it all on freeze again), it's frustrating, so now I'm jamming with a friend who does synth and drum computers...
There's stuff from my old band in Mexico online, though... :ph34r:

Well, besides the Hagström and the Maverick at least?

Anyhow - always super interesting finds you make us jealous with! ;-)

Then good luck with the new project! And make sure to post something, when you got something to share! ;-)
