    And speaking of 24, have you guys dabbled with the idea of a short-scale guitar? I'm particularly fond of 24" scale, but see that you primarily work with 24.75 or above.

    Thanks.
    we could do this in our custom shop ... would be a fun project!

    @Lewguitar

    You know.. we stick with what we love.. Mahogany, Swamp Ash, Alder
    Not that we don't try different or more exotic woods ( Zebrawood, Koa, Walnut, Paduke etc etc) as we do often if you look through our catalog or recent NAMM guitars but as you said we are more familiar with these woods and can better predict the tone, if that's at all possible. We are dealing with a living breathing thing here.. and they all vary greatly.

    we do also make some pretty 'metal-looking' 8-strings!

    FYI... these and the V-8 below are available at Drum City Guitarland in Wheat Ridge, CO. they stock more of our extended scale 6, 7 and 8 strings than any dealer in the world!

    here's a limited ed. V-8

    There ya go... problem was that the HB-103 specs are not published, but just described in terms of other Duncan models. So, in the end, the pickup was not a mystery, nor off-spec.

    just to add... he also stocks more of our USA Custom SHop stuff than anyone. He has a lot of the tricked out NAMM and Catalog instruments too ... worth a look thru his site: www.drumcityguitarland.com

    Honestly, we use SS and Nickel, truly a preference just like the maple/ebony/rosewood debate. If it works for you, sounds great and feels comfortable.. then it's a winner in our book!

    I hadn't noticed you used Swamp Ash for your guitars!
    That did however remind me of another question I have (in general).

    I LOVE the attack Swamp Ash has, I love almost everything about its' mids and most of its' highs but I'm having a hard time giving it the amount of lows I'd like it to have.

    Have you from all your experience found a combination (of woods or hardware, i.e. in the acoustic level) that keeps all the good qualities of a solid swamp-ash body but with enough lows?

    Our custom shop S-SERIES guitars and basses were all Swamp Ash! A very light weight and acoustically resonate wood! Seems to work best in bolt-on neck guitars IMO

    sorry .. missed this one. I would suggest a hard-tail (non trem) and then try a few differnt pickup combos to get some of the low end back. I am sure Evan can be of great help here.

    ALso .. a rosewood fingerboard would probably add warth over the ebony

    Darn, Mike, you're always six months ahead of me. OK, Misterbigshot, here are some questions:

    1) In your opinion, what would you say is the "Universal Language?"

    2) Who has cooked you the best homemade chicken stir fry you ever ate in the Greater-Santa Barbara area?

    3) If you ever see a guy in a restaurant in Tokyo wearing an American-style baseball cap, do you automatically assume he speaks English?

    4) Is the rumor true that you were once resoundingly crushed by a formidable adversary who then went on to achieve universal domination of the music industry (and the five-string guitar)?

    5) Lincoln or Caddy?
