    Hello guys - I want to introduce you to my project, once again a crossover between Tele and Strat. This is a chambered body from the English manufacturer Guitarbuild, a light swamp ash body with a walnut top. The clear finish is satin. The neck is from the German parts dealer Goeldo and has a Vintage Modern approach with a 9.5" fretboard radius. Kluson Tuners and a Bill Lawrence copper bridge complement perfectly with the first class Rudetone pickups from Hannover, Germany. The cherry on top of the cream cake is the Swedish Handbender system, which allows pedalsteel-like licks like a B-Bender or a Stringbender.
    This is a wonderful guitar with an open, very rich sound and one of my favourite instruments ever. I dubbed it Twangtone® Broken arrow. (Twangtone is my own brand)

    Nice. I really like the walnut and ash.

    Do you have a 4-way switch or other fun wiring schemes inside it?

    Thanks for your interest! No, I use a pretty much standard 3-way switch, nothing fancy, pure sound.

    I love it! I tried a strat body / tele electronics last year. Didn't work for me, but I'm glad it works for you!
