    @JoJo - looks so very sweet! I'll bet the sound is off the charts! You need a clear backplate so you can peek inside at any given moment!

    Thanks a lot for the kind words. A clear backplate would compromise the "clean" look of the guitars backside. And I do know very well what's inside as it took me several hours to install everything ;)

    I'm quite happy with the tone of the modified guitar, it suits me personally much better than before.
    The base guitar is a very good instrument indeed: I like both the control layout (2 volumes, 1 tone) and the neck profile very much. The build and wood quality (being a WL guitar) has never been stirred even a shadow of a doubt with me.

    The fact that Mr. Grissom and me have different tonal preferences is just a slight setback and can easily be remedied...

    For anybody willing to listen to my poor playing skills, here's a recent recording of the modified DGT on SoundCloud.

    Due to my love of singlecut PRS, I don't think I qualify for President or even Vice President, but I'll put myself up as the Secretary of DGT'ness or Archbishop of the DGT cult :D:eek::cool:.

    Here is my application for the job.

    I'll throw this in there too, since it does have the control layout :D:D

    Thanks Prez and Vice Prez! I love these guitars.

    Indeed they are. The 2 six stringers are from the Limited PS run where they have Pernambuco necks. The 7 string is one I had made for me.

    While I personally feel that the stock DGT is one perfect machine, I cannot fault someone for making killer mods to a great platform! :D Nicely done, JoJo!

    JoJo, which pickups did you install and how do the two guitars compare post switch?

    I have two DGT's, one with a trem and one with the two piece fixed tail and was considering putting different pick ups in the latter. I was thinking of the Peter Green PU's. Or maybe Emerald's?

    Edit: Ok, re-read the whole thread properly. That wiring set up sounds sensible to me as I always wondered they didn't offer a separate split for each pickup on the two volumes. The out of phase is the icing on the cake. Nice!
