RestorationAD Posted November 15, 2012 Report Share Posted November 15, 2012 T906 #1 El Mariachi Body: Limba/Walnut Veneer/Ambrosia Maple Top/Chambered/34mm Neck: Limba/Walnut Veneer/Maple Veneer/Macassar Ebony/18mm/44.5mm Hardware: Hipshot Bridge/Hipshot Grip Lock Scale: 25.5 Pickups: Dirt Bridge Humbucker/P90 Neck Electronics: 3-Way/Vol (Push-Pull) I had one last project to sneak in this year. The 9 Series singlecut prototype T9...I have a mini LP style single cut in the works but it is scheduled for late next year. We are following my usual design methodology of taking something vintage and dragging it "kicking and screaming" into the modern world while trying to retain what I consider the important features. For this model I am introducing chambering. However do to increasing idea theft I am not going to show it at this time. There are going to be two types of chambering available for this model. Weight reduction and Sound Chambers. This one has weight reduction. Moving forward I plan to keep the 9 Series within a specific weight range and will carry this type of chambering over to the S9 as well. Also introducing a new 4+2 headstock design that I hope to translate into 7 and 8 string models as well. I am designing a new P90 for this model that fits in a Humbucker route. Nothing new just adding to the versatility. I think on the second one I will do a traditional tele pickup config. Enough jabber here is the work... Ebony board on a Limba blank.
