A beaut little guitar with a great big tone. the body is small, Light and comfortable to play. The Duncan vintage P90's give this guitar a powerful tone ideal for heavy rock and blues. Also fits well the into old school rock and roll genre. I don’t remember much about this one as it was here a very short time heading home to a bloke called Reg in Sydney who was pretty pleased with it as you can see below.
I remember building it quite well being one of my earliest builds. I had a nice piece of mahogany not quite wide enough so I glued a couple of matching pieces either side and cut this small body from it. As a player it turned out very well with its custom designed guard and wiring that I nutted out myself. It really was a delight to play but got sold quiickly to subsidise my burgeoning build habit.

I was thinking the other day that I should let you know what a beautiful guitar you made. The more I play her, the better she gets. I just wanted you to know that she fits me like a glove and I have never played this well before. So thank you, you did a splendid job. All the best, Reg".
