That was an interesting video - thanks for posting that. I wonder what the weather affects of a wood neck with a carbon fiber fretboard would be? Interesting idea of the foot pedal for the tone/volume control - that may change my mind about foot controls.

I was wondering about that much wood as a opposed to a veneer too with temperature changes...prolly has enough sealant on it
