This guitar is the design I came up with when I wanted a guitar for myself.

The light weight obeche body is married to a bolt on roasted maple neck. The design is about as simple as it comes.

The Aussie made noiseless mini P90 pickup is great, and you can have it at the bridge, by the neck or in the middle. You’d like two pickups? Sure. You can have three if you like. It’s up to you.

All the components are quality – Japanese Hart tail top loading bridge with compensated brass tele saddles, Chrome Gotoh 510 tuners, Evo Gold frets, ebony knobs on Alpha pots and comes in a hard case.
