A buddy of mine has a guitar shop and is always on the look out for older guitars. He picked up a Univox Custom last week and called me to see if I would go over it for him and it needed a rewire. I got the guitar on the bench at the moment and had it pretty well stripped down. The guitar is 335 shaped except it is completely hollow. The wood is maple and the build is good. The finish is sunburst and the center almost has a flame maple look to it. Pickups are single coil, no idea of brand but they are a little over 8K and heavy for the size. The pots were toast but the selector switch was salvageable just needed a little contact cleaner. The nicest part about this guitar is the neck. It is slim but the fret work is excellent, no edges all crowned nicely. I am about half way through the rewire and it should be interesting to put strings on this thing. I have no pics at present as I am at work but I will take a couple and post tomorrow. So far we only know it is pre 1968 according to a website that I found.

Did some looking around, there is one on ebay in mint condition and it is going for 1500 + :eek: This one is missing the bigsby arm piece and the original pickguard. All else is accounted for, keeping the original caps and wiring layout as the original.
