This custom headless guitar was designed, engineered, and built-to-order for a customer. It is truly one of a kind and boasts a stunning combination of high-end features/components.
Check out that body shape! The shape was originally sketched up by the customer and we were able to bring it to life after making some minor design tweaks to allow for better fret access and construction.
The guitar is a 7-piece Maple/Walnut neck through body design with Mahogany body wings and a Spalted Maple Top.
The guitar is equipped with a DiMarzio Mo' Joe in the bridge position, a Lace Alumitone Single Coil in the middle position, and a DiMarzio PAF Pro in the neck position.
We installed CTS pots and a Schaller 5-way Megaswitch to offer a wide variety of high-end tones.
At the headstock side, we installed the "Technology For Musicians" string locks. These little string locks are made in Italy and are great for their versatility.
The J Custom XS Tremolo II was the bridge of choice. Here's a closeup shot of the J Custom XS Tremolo II
With the neck through construction, we were able to build the instrument with a steep cutaway to allow for unhindered upper fret access.
