If there ever was the classic surf strat then this has got to be it! If you don´t believe me then check out these videos to see
A tone monster that can get those sweet vintage tones - dry twang and lots of quack.
Add 4 new combination sounds and last but not least 5 humbucker sounds - all in a classic strat type guitar. Check it out to see if it isn´t possible.
Yet, everything about this guitar is vintage. From the light resonant swampash body beautifully contoured to the handwound low output alnico2 and 5 pickups. Add a beautiful flamed maple neck with vintage C shape.
But hte real treat is in the pickguard. A tasty hunk of rare white abalone. Now these surf strats usually come with a white plastic pickguard. The contrast is very harsh! With white abalone you get that sweet cream colored hue that shimmers in mint greens and lavender. The depth of the curls and ripples is utterly fantastic and will mesmerize the viewer.
Integrated in the handmade pickguard is the fingertips switching: 3 miniswitches = 12 tones. This is the most versatile circuitry I know. Get to know it and you will quickly forget and never mourn the standard 5 way switch. The only catch;this circuitry requires 6 times the solderingpoints and is alot more work. No shortcuts possible.
Last but not least there is that creamy maple neck with deep flames and stripes that beautifully match the pickguard. Take a look atthe video to see other lovingly made details. The price is worth every penny €2200,-
