1 Piece Lightweight Swamp Ash Build (7.16 lbs with strap)


My one and only build so far, went for a non-traditional dark/black hardware look. Love this type of aesthetic.

  • Hipshot locking open tuners
  • Flamed maple neck, rosewood 9.5" rad board, abalone dots, luminlay side dots, stainless jescar 7105 medium jumbo frets, heavy rolled edges (Parklane)
  • Neck - hand rubbed matte oil finish & stain (me)
  • Body finished in a grey & white mix of artist oil paints (oil paint, mineral spirits, japan drier) + 3 coats of Odie's oil for that hypo-allergenic feel ;)
  • Pickups - Cavalier She Wolf in neck, Fat Lion in bridge
  • Electronics - 4 way switch .022Uf cap, no load tone pot
  • Sheilding paint was an experiment, not many people use it - but this worked well: MG Chemicals silver-copper paint
  • Bridge - Gotoh modern brass with brass saddles
  • Straplocks - Dunlop
  • Body - one piece extra light swamp ash from Warmoth
  • Pickguard - matte black
  • Control knobs and cover plate - Lucky Dog Guitars
  • Weight: 7.16lbs with strap
