Two years in the making. I had the birdseye body made hollow with a solid maple center black. Pickguard is also custom made...faux abalone. Van Zandt P/U's were dead when I received them so I had them custom wound. Neck was actually found new. The original owner removed it when he purchased it new in '84. The rest of the hardware is Fender US Standard. I recently found a JV bridge plate in my parts bin that I'll attach...for nostalgia sake. This is by far my favourite guitar and the only one I now play.
