Description

This is actually a brand new guitar that has been at the UnsungHeroGuitars workshop for a while, just waiting for the right inspiration to strike… which it recently did and this has now been restyled to capture the vibe of it’s beautiful Gibson counterpart.
 
Its been fitted with new Gold Hardware including Gotoh Bridge and Deluxe Tulip tuners. Despite being new, this guitar has also received the full work through including fret level, re-crown and polish, together with the installation of higher quality circuity to replace the ‘less than stellar’ stock stuff. A comprehensive set up finished it all off and the photos now speak for themselves.
If you’re a fan of heavier necks, then this one could be for you… it certainly got one of the biggest, fattest, most baseball bat-ish necks that you’ll find!
 
You cannot buy them off the ‘big box store’ shelves with this playability, finish or attention to detail!
