Solid Swamp Ash Body routed for top mount pickups and controls. This guitar features a Light/Medium Relic Nitrocellulose Black finish with slight yellowing and light checking. The Body profile is an augmented and slightly exaggerated and thicker version of a Tele-Style under a custom pickguard shape.
I did a unique 1/2 cut pickguard style in combination with the gotoh wraparound bridge. I might make more in-stock guitars like this but this is certainly something we can do on a custom order so you can pick your own colors and pickups if that is what you prefer.
Handmade DWG 25.5" scale Neck with Ebony fingerboard. 9.5" radius and DWG style oversized matching Black headstock. Super smooth satin/matte back of neck, sides and headstock. Fret ends are rounded and fretboard edges slightly rolled, very comfortable neck. This neck is Medium thin at 0.82"-0.89". Frets are leveled and polished. The intonation and action are spot on and double checked before shipment.
Alnico 5 Handwound DWG Humbucker in the bridge and neck with aged nickel open covers. Pickup resistance is overwound 17.5K in the bridge and vintage PAF style 8.1K in the Neck. This set has a classic PAF bite and body but with just a little more heat in the bridge while the 12 pole open style design really brings out a very sparkly sound for a humbucker. With the 2x treble bleed and the push/pull coil select you can achieve a variety of single coil vintage sounds besides the 2 humbuckers classic sounds. Push-Pull volume knob controls the coil select on both the Bridge and Neck Pickup so you can get 2 single coil positions and an additional humbucker position. Overall an versatile pickup/control combination with an emphasis on achieving a crisp HH sound with bite and body but also a responsive delicate touch depending on how you dial in the various controls. Really great neck single coil sound when the coil select is engaged. Switchcraft output and toggle. CTS pots and cloth wires. I really like these oversized stereo knobs, great feel and they just look cool.
Gotoh Mini 16:1 modern Tuners for ideal tuning stability and a finer control. Bone nut. All the hardware is aged.
Plays great, low action, level frets and perfect intonation. Let me know if you have any questions. All of the hardware and parts are new and in excellent working order.
