    a Creston Electric to be exact, reclaimed spruce thinline with a P-13 in the neck, light as a feather & plays beautifully. I can get a real old-fashioned swing / blues sound out of the neck and a more classic tele sound out of the Lollar in the bridge; in-between is an interesting mix of the two, still lots of clarity but some of that P-13 growl. This is the pickup that predated the P-90 at Gibson and rumor has it that when the P-90 came along they sold the remaining P-13s to Harmony, where they appeared in a bunch of classic arch tops. This is a modern repro from Curtis Novak. Fretwork & finish work are flawless and Creston was a blast to work with.

    Congrats! I first learned about Creston Lea when my son was in college in Burlington VT. I looked up his website and every so often I go over and drool, he makes really cool guitars
