Welcome to Waterslide's new Offset model. The first two we are going to get will be a surf green and inca silver. The pics below aren't the actual guitars but they'll be pretty close to them...

You can choose lightweight alder, swamp ash or p[ine for the body with a nitrocellulose lacquer finish and aging that ranges from "under the bed" clean to a heavy relic.
You can choose the neck profile, frets, radius, nut width & wood types. Included in the price is a maple neck with a rosewood or maple fretboard. Roasted maple necks are an extra $100 and any other exotic woods may incur additional charges.
The pickups are Mojo UK Dual Foil Gold Foil pickups which take Teisco's classic design from the '60s and turns them into coil-splittable humbuckers. They're very fat and detailed in humbucking mode with more power and oomph than a typical Gold Foil. Each pickup can be coil split with the white switches on the upper horn which gives you the traditional round and glassy tone that has made vintage Gold Foil pickups so popular. The pickups are humbucking in the down switch position and split single coil in the up switch position.
Included in the price is a Mastery vibrato that's a beautiful piece of engineering. It works smoothly and maintains tuning stability. The vintage-style bridge is by StayTrem, which is a huge improvement over the original design with better sustain and overall tone. These guitars are also offered as hardtails with either wraparound or Tele-style bridges.
Electronics include CTS audio taper pots, a 3-way Switchcraft switch, Sprague Orange Drop and cloth covered wiring.
Great parts and great care go into these guitars and they come in a hardshell case.
