    Hi folks
    Just completed this build, calling it the ‘Galleon’

    thebody is kind of a cross between a Jazzmaster offset with a raised centre section like a Firebird.....so I guess it’s a Jazzbird!

    mahogany body, maple neck, Tele style headstock but flat radius fingerboard as tuneomatic bridge. Fender machine heads, Epiphone g-400 humbuckers beautified, single vol and tone control, toggle switch and Orange drop cap. All hardware suitably distressed ish!

    Plays nice, great action, sounds like a Gibson actually.
    Overall very pleased with it.

    Oh la la, Gorgeous Guitar!

    The level of crafmanship is superb, I dig everything about It: hot rodded, but still elegant.

    Fender or Gibson scale?

    Oh man, I know what I'm dreaming about tonight...

    And put me down for "what's the deal with the pickups?"
