About This Listing

This is my Nero #394, a design borrowing from ideas and styles from the 60s adapted to my specific building techniques. It is a brand new, completely hand built guitar that was on display at NAMM 2020

The body is hollow with a solid block support under the bridge, constructed with a Douglas fir core and slightly arched poplar top and western cedar top back. The finish is acrylic marker and Danish Oil that brings out the golden brilliance of the woods

The scale is 24-3/4”, the neck is a very friendly C carve with a 1-11-16”” Delrin nut, Schaller TOM bridge and fixed aluminum tailpiece. The neck is my standard design with a maple back / walnut head, maple fretboard, a dual action trussrod… all topped off with 24 Jescar 47104 frets and a new set of HipShot open-back locking tuners- finished with a satiny Danish oil. It is a very comfortable and easy playing neck.

The pickups are my handwound Type13SC single coil “silver foils” (under actual cow hide) of the same design as the 60’s DeArmond – Rowe gold foils- These pickups really come alive in this hollowbody, clean, sweet and sizzling when pushed. Controls are CTS master volume and tone pots with a Switchcraft 3-way toggle.

This is a very nice and easy to play guitar that can fill many spaces in your music
