was one of my pet projects. It's one of the few that
I get to build for myself and then sell later. This
project was started over a year ago and was just recently
graphic was inspired when I saw a Fender Custom Shop
guitar that was covered with "old school"
tattoo designs. The graphics looked as though they
were applied with colored pencil as opposed to paint
and that got me thinking.
is my first attempt at the colored pencil technique.
The pencil work is buried under the nitrocellulose
filler/sealer and the beautiful glossy clearcoat.
body is poplar with a flamed anigre laminate (the
head is laminated as well). The sides and back are
texture coated and the whole thing is outfitted with
pickups are high output with individual volume controls
and a shared tone pot that is also a push/pull that
taps the coils. It has a 3-way switch conveniently
located, stainless steel lag bolts connecting the
neck, and mirrored covers on the back.
