'Holly' is not only an exceptional looking instrument, but she also has it where it counts in tone terms.
The ash body features a very heavily worn finish - Sherwood Green metallic over a full three-tone Sunburst that I have (very) patiently aged over an 18 month period. I didn't actually sling it up on the workshop roof nor did I bury it in the garden (as I jokingly suggested to one customer) but it has been aged in controlled conditions using a few tricks I've picked up over the years. It took time and patience to achieve the aesthetic, but the result is stunning and well worth all the effort.
Elsewhere, we have a comfy 'C' shaped maple neck with a slab, dark rosewood fingerboard - 7.25" vintage correct radius and mammoth 6000 size nickel fretwire. The feel is worn in and comfy but dynamic and responsive at the same time. The harware is all Gotoh vintage repro with a steel-block vibrato and split post tuners. We've used a hand carved bone nut and she's set-up in concert pitch with 10-46 strings.
The juice is supplied by a set of our calibrated 'Timeless '62' pickups wired through a CRL five-way and brass collar CTS pots to a Switchcraft output jack.
