Couple electrics.

Post by Mr K » Sat Apr 03, 2021 6:47 pm

First up is a headless neck through. This is the third of these I've built and always a lovely guitar to build with great flowing lines
Specs
Afrormosia body with Wenge neck through, highlights are Koto.
25" scale 16" rad Ebony board with 24 SS jumbo frets.
EMG 60 neck with 81 bridge P/u's
ABM headless single bridge.
Weight 2.970kg or 6.55lb which is pretty light for a solid using hard woods.

Mark they are seriously smart. I particularly like the laminated neck. I still can't quite get my head round (as it were) the headless design. Doesn't your left hand tend to fall off! There again I suppose electric players don't spend too much time down that end of the fretboard.

And of course those maple knobs to match the bdy look just right.


Cheers Dave

Thanks Dave, I thick the biggest notable difference in feel of the headless there is a lot less weight in the head. People also associate active pickups with heavy metal which isn't my thing, I'm mostly into clean sounds and find the actives produce a more piano like clean.

I love the shapes (flowing lines in #1, angles in #2) and the timber choices. They make you want to pick them up and just run your hands over them. And I am sure they play well also. Very impressive creations!
