The Deca is my first offering fully custom guitar. I manufactured and engineered every item on this guitar except the Sperzel tuners. Has built in true bypass clean boost/fuzz. Just pull the volume knob up to engage. Is powered by one 9V battery that lasts for 1 year, or longer.
 Deca is designed to work normally (without boost), in rare case that the battery runs out.
Body is a 1.75" thick 3 piece slab of Red Oak with a Sho Sugi Ban torched finish.
The Deca comes setup, and ready to play flawlessly.

 Neck is center Walnut stabilizing stripe, with maple sides. Internal 2 Way Steel Truss Rod
Pressured glue in neck for tone, is set at 3 degrees.
 Fretboard is a figured selected piece of Tulipwood for tone.
 Custom medium nickel frets, with 26 frets.
12" Radius neck. 25.5" Fender scale.
 Custom machined/engraved steel plates for control panel, pickups, and truss cover, as well as end caps on the Custom Leather Case I built for it. 
 Ultra comfortable innovative individual modular brass nuts.
13 degrees angled headstock with Sperzel Locking tuners. 
 Innovative "flush sunk" billet aluminum hard tail.
Bridge is our exclusive "Intellitone" individually modular roller bridge IT1000.

 Pickups are our Exclusive matched set of 3 "TeleCoil" .040 copper wire wound (thicker wire), in
Purple Heart, body dipped in lacquer, wound pickup dipped in wax mixture. All pickups utilize the same steel magnetic field focalizer that Telecaster bridge pickups do. I feel the placement of pickups is important, so I tuned the pickups to to sit above all of the harmonic octaves. The pickups are also tapered to fit exactly over the magnet on each pickup.  
Pickups are wired to a 5 way switch with a reverse wound center pickup so you can get all single coils individually, or Neck/Center, Or Center/Bridge in Humbucker.

There are so many modifications taken into consideration to build a better guitar.

2 Individual tone controls, control bridge/middle, and middle/neck.. CTS potentiometers.
 The Volume is a CTS DPDT Switch/Pot, allowing you to engage the internal Clean Boost/Fuzz at your fingertips. The Volume, and Gain controls for the effect are on the back steel plate.
 The innovative 1/4' jack placement on the back steel plate is very comfortable, and protects guitar body, and cord from damage (We suggest using a Right Angle 1/4" Plug).
 The Steel control backplate also acts as a "sheild" for radio waves.

The Deca guitar has a minimalist body profile to cut down on waste, as well as weight. 
 The Deca weighs a comfortable 6.6 lbs.
 It is designed to play as comfortably, sitting as it is playing standing.
Body is balanced, and guitar stands straight up on its end, or on either side. So it doesn't fight you when strapped on.
Comes with a custom fitted, in-house made Leather/wood/steel hard case with clear powder coated custom cut and welded steel end caps.

No luxury, or modification was spared in the making of this guitar.
 The Deca is a guitar that I engineered after over 40 years of being an inventor/guitarist/aerospace machinist.
 "We didn't copy with this guitar, we innovated."

Thanks for taking a look.
