Hi folks I'm a newby to this forum, but have been designing and building guitars for over 25 years under the "Stukely" banner. I have taken a break as of late and thought I would share my lastest endeavor with you which was built for a client in the US.

Cheers

Soloist LE Spalt Specifications

Custom Designed Body Style similar in size to a Strat
Solid Center Block with Hollow Wings
Spalted Maple top
Mahogany Body
Cherry Wood Body Stripe
Birdseye Maple Neck and Fingerboard
Cherry Wood Accent on Headstock
Gotoh Tuners
Dimarzio ‘Tone Zone” and “Air Norton” Mag Pickups
Graphtech” Ghost” Acoustic Pickup System

For the record the Pickups and the Hardware was the personal choice of the client and I must say I was blown away by the overall sound both Magnetically and Acoustically (he really nailed it)

Wow, that is one fine looking instrument. I like the way you mixed the black and gold hardware - never would have thought to try that but it works well with the lighter coloured maple body and darker spalted accents. Very clever.

What did you use to finish it?
