A thorium and a Holdsworth? On the same guitar? :shock: Having not played either, it just *sounds* like...a smoking jacket, with actual smoke coming out of it...or a turtleneck, being worn by a dragon. :lol:

I'm curious...did they have anything to say about how they'd blend/balance/sound together? Was it their idea or yours?

If the Holdsworth sounds as P90-like as I hear, then this reminds me a lot of the Lee Malia Epiphone sigs. Good stuff, I love the Antique flame.

This was my idea - I have always liked to pair a hot bridge pup with a milder neck pup.
But I was told that the thorium bridge pairs well with the lithium neck.
