    Are my eyes playing tricks on me or does the NT Thumb have a different pickup slant than the BO? And also, the tailpiece looks closer to the bridge on the BO (the location of that tailpiece should have an appreciable impact on string tension, and perhaps sustain).

    And that double neck:
    1) ZOMG neck dive
    2) Who owns this?
    3) Left doubleneck strung righty!!

    I've heard of double-thumb, but usually it refers to a thumping technique! Great pics, thanks for sharing!

    Nice pair, Jeff.

    Is that a new, bubinga body, Thumb BO? (It has the JAN3 brass)

    Nice Thumbs Jeff!
    How are you digging the bubinga bolt on? Have you ever had a chance to compare it to an ovangkol one?
