Solid Roasted/Torrified Basswood Body routed for top mount pickups and rear access controls. This guitar features a Light/Medium Relic Nitrocellulose Dark Blue Metallic 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.
Handmade DWG 25.5" scale Neck with Maple fingerboard. 9.5" radius and DWG style oversized 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 16.2K in the bridge and 8.8K in the Neck. This set has a classic PAF bite and body but with just a little more heat in the bridge while the open style design really brings out a glassy and present 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 setup with bite and snarl but also a responsive touch depending on how you dial in the various controls. 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. Please make a note in the purchase process and also send a message if you would like any upgrades or modifications at time of purchase. Various hardshell cases available starting at $90.
