It’s been a while , but this baby just came in.Worth the wait , I’d say. 35″ scale neck , Maple and Zebra , with a bound Macassar Ebony 24 fret fingerboard.The body is Ribbon Mahogany , the FULL top is Flamed, Quilted, Spalted Maple, with a nice amber tint.Matching headstock veneer, of course.How much extra did Chris charge for this top , you ask ? Nada.
The pickups are Aero (thanks , Larry) Dual coils. The preamp is a custom 4 band by Mike Pope, with mute / passive / active switch , single / dual coil selector switch, and dual frequency selector switches for the low and high and bands.All hardware by the lads at HIpshot.All this, and a TKL hardshell case.
