So this guitar came off the shop floor and Markus took one look at it and had to have it. He is a meticulous builder with a wealth of guitar lore and knowledge, always an interesting guy to talk with.
So here is what he has done, Tru-Oil on the black limba. It really brings out the wood’s highlights, just beautiful… In person it is even more dramatic and the feel of a Tru-Oil neck in your hands is really, really fantastic. It has the Seymour Duncan Antiquity Pickup in it and the Gotoh Wraparound Bridge. It is waiting for the Bake-lite pickguard.
He also just happened to have a bumblebee cap, from a LP 58, just sitting around waiting for a home and here it is.
I will get some video and sound clips from him in the next couple of weeks.
