This newest member of the family punches above its weight. It is possibly one of the lightest guitars you will ever hold, weighing in at about 3½ pounds, neck and body combined. The body is made of Paulownia Wood, a very resonant wood cultivated in Japan, Korea, and much of the Far East.  Eight coats of Tru-Oil and mineral spirits were added to this body by wet sanding. Then five coats of Nitro were sprayed on, topped off with two coats of a special Minwax hand-rubbed polyurethane.

     

 

The neck is a gorgeous 3A Birdseye maple, artfully & tastefully relic'd. The neck also had three coats of Tru-Oil, then three coats of a super light Nitro (Behlen) to give it an aged look and a beautiful matt sheen.

 

The pickups hit you over the head with tele bite and crispness. The Alnico V neck pickup weighs in at 7.7 K and the bridge pickup at 8.1 K. The whole piece is rounded off with a set of Gotoh 510 nickel mini-tuners, at a 1:18 ratio.
