I used a Warmoth roasted Swamp Ash body with Maple neck. The installation was tricky - don't attempt this unless you have some luthier and woodworking skills!
I still have to work out the power source; my original plan to use the Fishman Fluence battery failed, so I need to add a battery box instead. Otherwise, it works fine; it's nice to have the two encoders on the guitar so I don't have to mess with fret control!
A Warmoth Roasted Swamp Ash body. Tape marks for pick guard edge
Cavity routed for ATG DSP board
Application of conductive paint to all cavities
Ready for electronics
Marking and installing hex pickup
Test fitting finished pick guard, Wilkinson tremolo, and output jack
Hole for 8-pin MIDI jack
Test fitting MIDI jack
Test fitting Fishman Fluence battery pack (this is before I concluded that it could not supply enough current for the ATG)
After True-Oil finish. MIDI wiring and battery cable are installed
Output and 8-pin MIDI jacks installed
Pick guard and DSP board wired up and ready! Note the single wire connectors
The big moment - will it all fit right?
It was tight, but everything fit
Battery connection and ground in the tremolo cavity
Warmoth Birdseye Maple neck attached. All hardware is black!
Tuner double pin holes drilled using StewMac template tool
Schaller M6 locking tuners installed
Love these tuners!
Top of the neck showing Birdseye Maple fingerboard
Close-up of controls. Note the two encoders between volume (top) and tone (bottom). I designed custom dials for each encoder
Sounds great! The two encoders greatly improve on the AT-200.
