Maple Neck and Alder Body

The Canadian Maple neck provides excellent stability and a handsome grained finish. The Alder used for the body is preferred for stronger mids and its light weight.

Cattle Bone Nut

Cattle bone is a hard, natural material and it has been favored by many luthiers for higher-end and vintage instruments for its sustain and natural lubricating property.

Hand Polished, Dressed and Leveled Nickel Frets

Nickel frets provide a durable and smooth playing surface for nice and easy bends, without the tonal sacrifice of stainless steel. All fret ends are also hand-dressed for playing comfort.

HSS Configuration- Fender Texas Special SC/ Wilkinson Rails Humbucker

The perfectly paired pickups are wonderfully suited for ALL genres and styles of playing. Providing clarity when you need it and a bite when you want it.

**This guitar has some scratches,dings,scuffs and 'patina' from its previous 
incarnation as well as a couple of minor blemishes due to the 
redesign/rebuild. Nothing too noticeable, see photos for condition.

**There is one small cosmetic issues to note:

I had planned on a different bridge modification, and in doing so I made the bridge cavity a bit larger than was originally on the guitar. After realizing that modification wouldn't work, I went back to a traditional bridge. That being said, there is a visible gap/hole/space under the bridge, about 1/4" off the bridge itself (see photos). Its barely noticeable and doesn't affect the play-ability of the guitar or the integrity of the bridge at all.
