This one is an all out fully loaded strat - where I put in alot of extra time getting it just right:
Choice light resonant old pine body, all vintage specs. Weighs 1,8 Kg.!
Hand wound German Leo Sound vintage single coil pickups, alnico 5, scatterwound vintage style
Five way strat switch is standard but you can upgrade to a Fingertips switch:
Fingertips switching - 5 standard vintage sounds - 5 completely new fat series sounds and two new paralel sounds = 12 altogether(Check out my demo on DVD/soundfiles - very lengthybut very honest) Extra hand shaping of body to accomodate that very special and ULTRA RARE White abalone top with its deep breathtaking flames and ripples.
Special airbrushing of sides, back and top. Many layers of ultra thin color, great gold orange-burst on sides and top to gradually blend in
the color and the white abalone top. A cavalcade of Colors and intertwining Abstract shapes. A literal avalanche of dreamlike layers. I incorporated those wispy shades and shapes that I´m known for, on the back.
Choice Grade AAA vivid flamed maple neck, beautiful flames - vintage fat c shape and medium jumbo frets. The neck is fast, comfortable and thick enough to give you
that nice snap and sufficient sustain.
All gold hardware and knobs.
Pickup covers covered in matching white abalone for that sleek look.
All in all, this is still a very vintage strat, that is not only pretty but a tone monster meant to be played hard.
