Upon completion of the “Wishcaster” guitar – which is destined to be raffled off – I decided I needed to build another one that I could keep.
Body: African Mahogany with a Maple burl cap; top bound in white pearloid plastic binding
Neck: African Mahogany with Padauk and birdseye Maple “racing stripe” brass side dots installed in the Padauk
Headstock: African Mahogany sandwiched between Padauk and Maple (birdseye back, burl top veneer)
Finish:”Nuclear burst” – Transtint Bright Red and Amber dyes, hand-wiped Homer Formsby Tung Oil finish
This guitar features gold hardware with “lipstick” style alnico pickups. Once again I wired the neck pickup RWRP to provided a humbucking effect when used together. For this guitar I added a push/pull DPDT switch for the volume control that switches between typical parallel to series wiring for the pickups. This adds a bit of warmth and gives the signal a boost. This is my fourth electric and the first to feature my new logo inlay…
