About This Listing

2019 Jason Pickard
"Calypso"

Proudly built in North Carolina, this guitar is a brand new model in the Pickard Electric Guitars Lineup.  At a glance, the specs are as follows:

24.75" Scale
Neck Width @ Nut - 1.860"
Neck Width @ 12th Fret - 2.110"
Pickups - Paul Reed Smith P90s
Fretwire - Dunlop 6100
Fingerboard - Striped Ebony
Fretmarkers - Aluminum 3/32" Side Dots
Neck - Paduak (quartersawn)
Truss Rod - Carbon Fiber 1/4"x3/16" Inlaid (non-adjustable)
Body - 3 Piece Honduran Mahogany (100+ Year old)
Top - Paldao
TailPiece - Custom Made Tray (Pickard) with Brass Tele Saddles
Tuning Machines - Kluson Style (Mojotone)
Finish - Hand Rubbed Oil

For your consideration, this is the first prototype Calypso.  Very solid and wonderful tone.  The Paduak neck in combination to the thick mild steel ash tray style tailpiece lend a very sustained balance tone that the P90's really seem to work well with.  The Honduran Mahogany of the body is literally unreplaceable, it came from a cabinet maker (currently 96 years old) who obtained the wood some 50 or 60 years ago.....it's air dried, and the sort of Mahogany that older instrument makers tell stories of.  Very light, and very good tone wood.  Weighing in at 6.58lbs, this offset shape is quite comfortable and the neck is a hand-carved shape which we'd describe as a Vintage C-Shape.

This is a handmade guitar, it's very high quality and feels "Handmade".  We have decided to sell the first Dozen of these guitars at a discount, so feel free to contact us with questions and concerns, we could even possibly do a 48 hour approval if you cover 50% of shipping charges.  
Check out the Music49 Facebook Page for SoundClips of the Guitar, or we can do a Facebook Live to let you hear it first hand.
