This is an experimental guitar my son had me build it’s an Ash body with a semi through neck (to increase sustain)which is made of laminated Maple & Mahogany with a rosewood fingerboard we fitted an old Kahler Locking trem kit with tablocks at the nut end of the fingerboard the humbucker is a Gibson paf & the single coil is actually a stacked humbucker the finish is acrylic 2 pack lacquer tinted purple on the body. He wanted 25 frets ( a la Spinal Tap “Well it’s one more innit?) not really convinced on that if 24is enough for Steve Vai it’s more than enough for me. His design of reverse headstock which I think is a little too chunky. Overall it sounds good, plays ok, has good access to the top frets with the seamless neck to bodyjoint, looks interesting & gave me another reason to be in the workshop so that was ok.
