Instead of the usual vol and tone for each pup like the classic LP setup, I've wired it so now it's:

Volume for neck
Volume for bridge
Master treble cut (bridge tone)
Master bass cut (neck tone)

Surprisingly useful.

Nice body shape too! Very 7-string metal! Are the dyes imported powder or liquid?

yep needed a new nut :) a zero fret at the first fret is not a good idea!
