Tumultuous Kittens

Glenda and Gwendolyn are 16 weeks old now. They had a ride to the vet this morning to get the booster shots. They are pretty good passengers knowing what cool cats they are riding in a Mazda MX-5.

The latest video of the kittens is accompanied by me playing the guitar I finally finished with a painting named Tumultuous by Tiffany Arp-Daleo on the body and headstock. I’ve been working on this guitar for about three months.

I used a Strat-style body with two colorful Humbucker pickups instead of the three single-coil pickups common to Strat-style guitars. I wired the pickups with a five-way switch. The top, first position on the switch in the neck pickup (both coils). The second position is a single-coil of the two coils in the neck pickup. The middle (third) position is both pickups together with all four coils. The fourth position is a single coil of the bridge pickup, and the bottom (fifth) position is both coils of the bridge pickup.

I got some nice, interesting sounds out of the guitar in the audio recording below. I used the same bass and drum tracks with different effects than I used for the recording in the video. The photos below show the guitar, the body, and a closeup of Tiffany’s signature.
