This Coodercaster features a beautiful Dakota red nitro lacquer finish on an alder body that's been aged and relic'd. The guitar weighs in at 8 lbs. Even so, it's a nice light weight for a Coodercaster with tons of sustain, great balance & no neck dive.
The maple neck has a Tele style headstock and a nice full profile (.85" - .95") that's a very soft V to C shape. It's got a 25.5" scale length that's 1 11/16" at the bone nut with a 10" radius and 6105 frets. It has a light, slightly tinted satin finish that feels great and will not get sticky when playing.
The bridge pickup is a Mojo UK 'Valco-Style' lap steel pickup which is very fat sounding with tons of sustain and punch. These are uniquely sensitive pickups which nail the vintage character and tone of the original design. Primarily used by slide players like Ry Cooder, Jason Isbell and Blake Mills, these lap steel pickups have a special magic with open tunings and bottleneck playing.
The neck pickup is a vintage Teisco Gold Foil from the '60s. It holds its own with the lap steel pickup with a sweet top end and clarity that provides a nice complement, tonally. The Strat style tremolo is by Kluson with a steel block and stainless steel saddles.
There's also CTS audio taper pots, a 3-way Oak Grigsby switch, Sprague Orange Drop and cloth covered wiring. The tortoise pickguard accent and vintage-style bakelite radio knobs tie it all together. Comes in a tweed hardshell case.
