It's election season here in the U.S.A. and that can only mean one thing. The bullshit is flying fast and furious. This time around there is lots and lots of flash and style and zero substance . I'm voting for Alice...

Here is another one that got to go out. This is a crazy split coil Tele bridge pickup is called "The Searcy String Works 615" . The bass side is just a little hotter then the treble side to give it a little more low end. I think this one will really take off when people have a chance to hear it. I need to make one for my own Tele.

I finally got the curved arch top pickup done for John Derrick. I'm really excited to see what he does with this. The extreme curve made it a major challenge to make and still get good string coverage while remaining balanced and humbucking all at the same time. I thought about giving up more than once but I just couldn't . And now we have this....
Here's a new model to the SSW pickup line. It's a FireBird style mimi humbucker. It's so new I don't even have a name for it yet.
It has what I'm calling a half relic finish on it just to be different and it's off to Canada for a mutant Tele project.

Alright alright!! That John Derrick pickup is about done. I have some pickups heading out to Canada this week. Have some stuff going to Benford Guitars. We have some Scarabs getting built and a new set of VOV Revolution humbuckers about to hit the wax bath. It feels go to be back in the shop and marking projects off the board. Here's a shot of a few works that are headed to the wax pot in the morning.
