This guitar might remind you of a classic: offset body, 25.5″ scale, maple neck, two fat single coils, and a large vibrato on the base of the guitar, but the similarities end there! This can be played as a normal mono guitar, or you can use the included A/B footswitch and stereo cable to utilize stereo mode. You can send neck and bridge pickups to two different amps or signal chains for a myriad of sonic possibilities. Check out the video below for more.
I begin with a rock maple neck and alder body and carve them to my specs. I use a forearm and tummy contour for comfort. Nitrocellulose lacquer and a hand-made tortoise pickguard are kind on the eyes. A rosewood fretboard, thin D-shape neck, and medium nickel frets make for a comfortable fingerboard. Hardware is customizable (Mastery bridge and vintage tuners pictured). Electronics consist of my handmade pickups, premium electronics from CTS and Switchcraft, and fully shielded cavities. To top it all off, this guitar comes with a hardshell case, A/B footswitch, and a 15′ stereo Mogami cable.
