Here is "The Tiger" from my second visit to the Bailey barn workshop near Coventry.

I don't have any construction images - I took video which I've subsequently lost.

Book matched flame maple cap over mahogany. Maple veneer cut for the headstock.

Seymour Duncan Jazz and JB hummers.

This guitar is HEAVY.

Oh, the pots are push/pull... one splits the coils, the other completely switches out the tone circuit.

I NEVER use tone controls. It's surprising the difference removing the tone circuit completely makes to the sound of the instrument.

That’s a great feature to have. I know what you mean though, I don’t use the tone control either, I’m not that good a player. I spend most of my time remembering where to put my fingers. Β Try my best though.Β
