Custom made for a customer by Deviser, it has the shops name written in the pocket.
One piece double bound body, Voo-Doo 50s p`ups, fully shielded, ebony fingerboard, MOP inlays, the guitar was ordered with a slightly fatter and wider neck...good for me because I play with my fingers. The top is a full cap, not a veneer. Steel block and some kind of funny Japanese tuners that I think are locked with a screw driver...they are slotted on top but the strings go through the posts... I am going to ask the shop guys to have a look tomorrow. All top grade electronics but the volume pot is very tight...they need to look at that too. I was told by the staff that after they made this Hamiltone look alike, they decided to make a series based on them... not sure how true that is but it may be some kind of proto type... the guitar has no serial number. They made it a bolt on even though the Hamiltones I`ve seen in magazines were neck through, and Deviser gave the guitar a neck through look from the front. They told me it cost 400,000 originally but I paid less than 1/4 of that.
There are a few scratches and they might be able to be buffed out but... I like used guitars so they don`t bother me at all. OK...I think thats it... got it yesterday and slept well last night.
the guitar is in their hands, they need to do something about the volume pot that only the Incredible Hulk can turn. I`ll go back tomorrow and see if they have to change it out... the guy who was involved in the custom order for the owner was off today and he is the only one with all the details on the guitar. If worst comes to worst I will just have them put another pot in it and keep the original `cause I sure don`t want to return it over a crappy pot.
got it back. Seems the previous owner put tape around the volume shaft and some of the glue from it made it`s way down the shaft and inside the pot causing it to bind up. Haven`t had a chance to play it but the pot turns like a normal one does now and I`m off to my last class today so I`ll try it later. Just keeping youse abreast of the situation... can we say breast here?
