This beautiful bit of madness was built with purpose, for tone and "natural" aging.
It has a beautiful Flame Maple Warmoth neck, with black Ebony fretboard, SS6150 frets (stainless), GraphTech nut, and Clear Satin Nitro finish, with vintage style Gotoh tuners, and a questionable punk rock octopus, adorning the headstock.
The body has a custom purple nitrocellulose finish, done by a builder in the UK who specializes in relics and vintage styles. He provided a thin nitro finish, designed to age a bit quicker, to make it uniquely "mine", over time. You can see this in action as the cracking on the back began over the last few years (see pictures).
It has a Fender Hardtail Bridge and Schaller Strap Locks, with a Dunlop Jimi Hendrix Monterey strap (included, if want. If not, I'm keeping it. I love it).
It's got some absolutely killer Radioshop single-coil pickups (Chris Buck pickups, if I remember correctly), vintage-style cloth wiring, and was all wired up in the UK before being sent over, so they knew it was done right.

If you hate the octopus or my scribblings in general, it's done with Sharpie, so it can be removed with alcohol wipes, and then you can do a waterslide decal and pretend it's a Fender, if you like.
If you need anymore info, just ask. I'm open to offers, within reason.



I have a pedalboard and some pedals for sale, as well. Check the "more ads by this user" link, if interested.
