Spalted Rice Custom Esquire

This is alder with an 1/8" spalted/flame maple top, birdseye on birdseye neck. Tigerwood knobs. The very first Glendale top-load bridgeplate in non-magnetic stainless steel with a Fralin Blues Special. Glendale brass saddles with a round-bottom aluminum E/A. Exceedingly microphonic (in a good way!), the switch changes caps (none, .044, .022). The maple and Glendale plate give this guitar a crispness that is so cool at lower levels, and screams when cranked a bit. I'm having fun with this one!
