Hasilesque P90 acoustic

As you all know we love an interesting project. This fender acoustic came in with a P90 screwed into the soundhole like Hasil Adkins.

Already this guitar had an unconventional modification, and it also had a hole in the top. What was wanted was a volume and tone control for the pickup, so we figured the cool thing to do would be to make a tele style control plate but with a volume, tone and output jack. Aaron traced a plate we had here and drilled the appropriate holes, after some mapping and measuring.  Matching holes were drilled in the guitar for the pots and plate.

Aaron wired it up, installed the plate and strung it up. Some guitars are fancy and some just have a lot of character. And, yes, it did sound good. Here you have it.
