Voting for March 2020's Guitar Of The Month is open - VOTE HERE!

  • Guitar Of The Month - February 2020

    Purple Haze

    This is my third working guitar, it’s definitely the best one so far.  I would say it’s heavily based on a Jackson dinky with some inspiration from ESP.

    This build had a lot of firsts for me:

    • First time Maple walnut laminate neck
    • First time binding and my own laminate binding at that
    • First time doing inlays
    • First time adding a top
    • First time staining anything

    Certainly a learning experience but very, very pleased with the results. 

    Specs:

    • Flamed maple top with limba body
    • Flamed maple with walnut laminate neck
    • Maple and walnut laminate bound ebony fretboard with abalone acrylic inlays
    • 14” radius neck with jumbo frets
    • Gotoh tuners
    • Original Floyd Rose with some upgrades such as a brass trem claw (for looks not sound), fat brass block and turbo arm.
    • Emg Het Set pickups

    And a couple of video clips put together very rushed to show the dirty and clean sounds.  Please pass no remarks on the playing! Or the weird faces I make when playing ...didn’t realise I did that till now 😂🤪
