After 20 years of guitar playing I decided I deserved a flagship guitar. It took 2 years of work to build and hundreds of my personal specifications. This guitar was manufactured by hand exactly the way I wanted it. Its original purpose was to finally (after 16 years of spending!) be a vehicle to achieve Jerry Garcia's guitar sound. It does just that. Or many, many other sound options right from the guitar.

It has heft (10.8 lbs.), beautiful tonewoods, and a crazy electronics schemata (full-size electronics diagrams are included, as are life size CAD measurements of every dimention) including a CB-2 preamp, active 3-band EMG BQC equalizer with sweepable mids, an effects loop and built-in Roland Guitar Synthesizer pickup. The possibilities are limitless. Three individual pickups (DiMarzio Super IIs) can be used separately or in Strat-style duets. Coil taps on each pickup multiply your sound options. A brass nut, truss rod cover, electronics cavity cover plate and pickup ring round out the look. The Schaller roller bridge is amazing, each sting is adjustable in 3 dimentions to get everything exactly where it best suits your playing style. The Gibson tail piece has fine-tuning knobs for each string. The neck is the thickest one I have ever held, it is also has a rare double binding of maple and cocobolo. Body is 1 7/8" thick! 24 frets. The sandwich is a flamed maple core with a Guatamalan cocobolo top and back. The neck-thru is a 3-piece of maple and cocobolo. Madagascar ebony fretboard and bookends to the pickup ring are just gorgeous. It has a great balance while playing. The heavy neck keeps everything just right.

I picked out all the raw wood boards myself from what Chris bought. He sent me pics and asked which ones I wanted. It couldn't have turned out any better.

Custom-fit black-on-black Ameritage case is included, a $400 value.

Paypal only. Ships to continental US only, thanks.


Good Luck!
