With its quirky left hand features that include a reversed headstock and upside down installed single coil bridge pickup, this stunning right hander evokes all the ‘well loved, well played’ hue with subtle, yet effective aging. The Vintage White finish has received a coat of amber cellulose lacquer, heated then cooled with freezer spray to create incredibly authentic lacquer checking on the front and back of the body.
The neck itself is a thing of beauty, sleek, fast and carefully aged for that unmistakable killer look, and along with the headstock is given a cellulose amber coating. The vintage charm is enhanced further with simulated rusty pickup pole pieces, whilst pickup covers, scratchplate and controls also receive subtle shading to blend into the pre-worn picture.
