I've come to the realization it's a bit too heavy for me to play standing up (almost 10 pounds). The guitar features an original TB body in Koa. Greg machined the neck, bridge, pickguard, control cavity cover, and pickup covers. The bridge was fabricated out of a solid block of steel (not bent or pot metal). The pickup covers (aluminum) are cut from a solid block as well. Pickups in this guitar are a Seymour Duncan Custom 5/ '59 hybrid (bridge) and a Stew Mac Golden Age A5 humbucker (neck). The covers will accept any humbucker, but you may need Greg to fashion a new baseplate (mounts from the bottom). Pickups are wax-potted in to the covers and easily removable. These pickups sounds excellent in this guitar. The fretboard is phenolic and the nut is brass. This is a high-quality copy and tolerances are tight. I have some pictures on-hand, but they are not hosted. I will take some more of better quality today. If you live in the Chicagoland area we can meet up so you can try the instrument out.

Below are pictures of my guitar from Greg's website.
