In the past I have had the pleasure to broker donations and put together a guitar or two to sell for the benefit of the OFC "Keep the Lights On" fund.

Any ideas, parts or suggestions for this year?

You can take the most beat up Viper and turn it into a really nice PF 22 style guitar!

Should we try an Acoustic?

How 'bout a chambered electric, with piezo, stereo, & onboard effects? And, no , I don't have any parts for that. Use that blonde K-bar neck, fer godsakes!

Another thought. As we devise & develop, perhaps a donation fund, for purchase of components, & an assigned "scrounger". Yes, Woodrow, you're elected. "Careful what you wish for....."

I agree, we should tell Woody what to build and make him scrounge all the parts!

I have an Artec acoustic preamp and maybe the piezo to go with it. Not sure that I'd base a nice project around it. I have a couple of better undersaddle piezos, but I need to figure out which one I should keep to repair one of my guitars. Gotta couple of those old Schaller Oyster piezos that might work somewhere.

For an electric, I have many many pickups, would need to know what they're going into. I might still have one of those nice Schaller top-mount bridges.

Maybe some used Schaller tuning machines, don't think they fit anything I have.

I've got some Select by EMG passive pickups I'd donate. Two single coil pickups and one humbucker, from a Hohner G3T which I upgraded the pickups on. They're passive and ok pickups. Not boutique but average.

I've got an HH set of Select humbuckers w/small Ibanez logo and I think a few EMG HZ passive humbuckers. All black, might not be "woody" enough...

I have a complete as-new set of Gotoh "STEALTH" machines.You can make very fancy headstock designs with them.

I'll throw in a set of locking tuners. I don't know the manufacturer.

Spring Cleaning is just around the corner!

Miles, maybe I can pick stuff up when the Tulips are blooming?
