This one is a Blondie with some fancy titanium (aerospace quality) parts from Titanix Company. The harness has hi-fi quality silver caps and Jack. These pickups are actually silver wound by Seymour Duncan called Zyphers.
It actually sounds pretty special. Image

Those pickups come at a very special price too!

Inspiring work as always Ken. Thanks for sharing!

They are made extremely precise. They are light and feel solid. I'm partial to old original style though.
