This is a custom Waterslide S-Style guitar.
This guitar features a featherweight roasted swamp ash body with a super thin open grain transparent vintage cherry nitro Lacquer finish that's lightly aged and weathered. The guitar weighs in at 6lbs 13oz total so it's a super light guitar with great sustain & great balance.
The roasted maple neck has a chunky C profile (.88" - .96") and a 25.5" scale length that's 1.625" at the bone nut with smooth, rounded fretboard edges, a 10" radius and 6105 frets. It has light riftsawn figuring with a slightly tinted satin finish that feels great and will not get sticky when playing.
The pickups are surface-mounted Mojo UK Dual Foil Gold Foil pickups which take Teisco's classic single coil design from the '60s and turns it 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 by 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 forward switch position and split single coil in the rear switch position.
The floating 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 Dakaware knobs and lucite brushed silver pickguard tie it all together.
Great parts and great care go into these guitars and this one comes in a hardshell case.
