The Bjorling BarnBurner

A couple of years back, George Bjorling came to me for a doubleneck. Since that time, we've become good friends.

I told George of an idea I had to top a body with old, beat-up barn boards instead of some fancy-scmancy maple top. Not only did he have some barn boards, but he also had some slabs of oak. He sent them all.

I thought such an unusual guitar need an unusual setup and style.

The body is like a Strat but is the size of a P-bass. The electronics are two individual volumes and a shared tone that is a push/pull pot that taps both of the humbuckers.

This bad boy is heavy too. It weighs in at 10 pounds.
