Here we have a finished guitar ready to ship. This one is for a Sonny Landreth type player - a slide guitar that can also be played traditionally. It's an English walnut body - also known as Franquet. This stuff is not only amazing to look at but it has a ring tone that the gods might have designed specifically for electric guitar - sweet mids and sustain til next week! Imagine my thrill when I found out that for some reason this English tree has been planted all around my area, so it's another amazing transplant that I have been incredibly lucky to get my hands on!
The pickups are hand wound by David Plummer - he lovingly calls these his "Duanebuckers" for the much missed slide player Duane Almond.
