Rukavina T Model Black Korina / Walnut / Birdseye

Sorry, this listing is no longer available.


A 25" scale black walnut and birdseye maple neck, on a two-piece black korina body.  12" fingerboard radius, abalone dots(black on the side), Jescar FW47104 fretwire, and a two way truss rod on the neck...finished in several applications of walnut oil(waxed).  The body is finished in satin poly. 

I'm listing this one at a reduced cost, as it was consigned briefly at a music shop here in MT, and came back to me w/some wear(scuff) between the pickups on the treble side and some white is a satin finish, not a buffed or buffable finish, and I surmise an employee tried removing a pick mark or fingerprints with some rubbing compound, leaving a bit of blemish.  It is hardly even noticeable, and typically needs to be pointed out to be noticed, but it is there.  It is shown in a couple close-up on the last photo.

The neck width at the bone nut is 1.68", and the width at the 22nd fret is 2.15".  Neck thickness at the nut(fingerboard surface to back of neck) is .830", and .908" at the 12th fret -- with a mildly offset C shape(@1st fret) to straight C contour(@12th) on the back of the neck.  The C's pinnacle is offset to the treble side a hair, for a bit more thumb grabbability, akin to an offset V shape, but more subtle.

The pickups are handwound to about 8K on both the Tele bridge coil and the P-90, both being potted and shielded, and both use Alnico 5s...very classic sounding, with a spanky and slightly throaty 'both' sound.  I will try and get a clip up shortly.

The bridge is a Gotoh with compensated brass saddles...string through body, with the balleds set into an ebony inset retainer.

Alpha 500K pots, a Mojotone .22 mustard cap, copper shielding, and a Switchcraft toggle and output jack make up the control circuit.

Comes strung and set up w/D'Addario 10s, and ships for free(Ground UPS) with a gig bag at the listed cost.  A hard case would be roughly $70 additional.
