Those of you familiar with Coodercasters know that the design of these old Valco-style lap steel pickups typically results in a middle position where three strings are in-phase and three are out. We've worked with Mojo to come up with a solution to that problem so all Waterslide Coodercasters with Mojo UK Lap Steel & Gold Foil pickups now feature our new switching system which allows all six strings to be in-phase with each other when both pickups are on.
The flamed maple neck has a '50s boatneck profile and 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 Mojo UK Gold Foil pickup which recreates Teisco's design from the '60s. It holds its own with the Lap Steel pickup with a sweet top end clarity that provides a nice complement, tonally.
The vintage-style Strat bridge is by Kluson with stainless steel saddles and a steel trem block.
There's also CTS audio taper pots, a Sprague .047 cap and cloth covered wiring. The vintage Hofner Teacup knobs and aged parchment pickguard tie it all together. Hardshell case included..
