  • Guitar Of The Month - July 2021

    Deep Blue

    This was my first "real" commission build - I sold some guitars that I built a long time ago, but never took someone else's design from the ground up and made it a reality, so this was a new experience for me.  He's a big fan of PRS guitars, and his design choices obviously reflect that; it's the Custom body shape with a flat top, basically.  He had a Strat with a neck he really loved, so I took some contour gauge and caliper measurements of that and duplicated the thickness and profile as closely as I could.  


    - 25.5" scale, 24 Jescar stainless frets, abalone position and side markers. 

    - Indian rosewood fretboard.

    - African mahogany body.

    - Curly maple top with natural faux binding.

    - Curly maple one-piece neck with 2x carbon fiber reinforcement rods.  

    - Seymour Duncan Custom 5 and 2x Classic Stack pickups, 5-way blade, volume/tone/tone

    - Gotoh tuners. 

    - Hipshot bridge.  








    Didn't get a long demo recorded or anything, but this is what it sounds like through a 1987 Mesa Mark III+
