This lovely guitar stopped by for a brief visit yesterday to have the battery clips reconnected.


Burl Brazilian Rosewood to die for.

We didn't take very many pictures in 1997, so when I get a chance to document some earlier work, I jump on it.

Surprising that it's a '97; looks much newer. And yes, beautiful guitar!

Body looks like a combination of a Standard Point and a Spoiler. Hum-canceller must be mounted inside?

Yes indeed, that wood is really something!

Agree about the shape, really nice. Also thought it was newer at first glance. Must admit I am not usually that big a fan of burled wood but what an exquisite piece of Rosewood! Would love to have an instrument with a top like that Rosewood is great sounding wood.

Any chance you took a shot that includes the headstock? The electronics are interesting, too. Looks like a Series II without the humcanceller.

I knew this looked familiar. I think this one on the forum is the same guitar and has more photos.
