"Built or customized all of the instruments in this photo. The aqua guitar was made from a piece of redwood found on his property. He outfitted it with P-90-style pickups, Master Volume, and an active tone boost/cut. The double-neck guitar is his most recent build, and features active electronics on the bass strings as well as the guitar strings. It also has a piezo bridge in the guitar section. The guitar is semi-hollow, similar in construction to old Danelectros, and he says the overall design was inspired by the work of luthier Claudio Pagelli. Finally, Tracy customized his Line 6 AX2 212 combo by splitting it into a head and cabinet, replacing the particleboard cab with pine, and covering it in brown tweed. "
