Wiring Diagram: Click Here.

Construction Details: Exhibition grade Curly Maple top over a chambered Alder body. Thin nitrocellulose lacquer with a multi-pass tinted stain method which creates a one-of-a-kind finish. Incredible depth of finish. Rear body shot in a custom Mary Kaye translucent white, showing the Alder figure. Eastern Hard Curly Maple neck, with a nitrocellulose lacquer tinted amber finish. Modern C neck carve, bone nut. Charlie Christian style neck pickup wound by Pete Biltoft and a Mojotone two-face bridge pickup wound by Nick Eldred, with adjustable bass-side poles. 3-way wiring with some special sauce makes the tone pot the most articulate range I’ve heard. CTS pots, Russian PIO capacitor, and Switchcraft jack all connected with vintage wire. Extensive shielding makes this a whisper quiet single coil guitar. Bridge and control plate by Mark Rutters. Heavy, vintage round knob controls. Hipshot staggered locking tuners with oval buttons to match vintage look. Morelli backplate and color-matched, transparent headstock logo, custom hybrid-style blue pearloid pickguard. Weighs 6 lbs. 6 oz.

Notes: This is a one-of-a-kind Tele style guitar. Incredible sound from a unique set of pickups and wiring. Matching Souldier hand-sewn strap.
