Custom Built - Solid Body
The profile of my standard neck is best described as the nicest '59 Les Paul you laid your hands on! It has a depth at the 1st fret of 22mm (7/8"), at the 12th fret it's 24mm (15/16"). Optional neck depths are 21mm or 23mm at 1st fret to 23mm or 25mm at 12th fret.

 

Fingerboard Inlays:
If standard 6mm Mother-of-Pearl dots or small offset blocks don't take your fancy, then let's chat about it! Don't forget, all my inlays are done by hand, not computer - they take a great deal of time and can therefore add a lot to the price of your guitar.

 

Hardware:
All guitars are adaptable to receive standard or locking tuners - fixed or vibrato bridges. The choice is yours.
Pickups:
My favourite pickups are Seymour Duncan, DiMarzio, Tom Holmes and Harmonic Design. However, I'll fit anything you want. Any configuration of humbuckers and/or single coils can be installed on each model of guitar.

Electrics:
Each guitar has standard placement for the pickup selector switch, volume and tone controls but various wiring options (custom coil-splits etc.) are available, depending on pickups chosen.
