The body and neck for this guitar was made in 2011 but the final assembling was in April 2012. I painted it in the old color "Surf Green", bought from in Sweden. Such a nice color. On top I put 12 coats of clear lacquer that make the guitar shine.

The guitar is loaded with a set of Lundgren 50's Formvar pickups. I connected them as my own standard with a lift pot at the tone control to connect the middle pickup in series with the neck or bridge pickup, depending on the position of the 5-way switch. These pickups on the alder body sound so classic. It has the typical brightness and attack and an incredible sustain.

The neck is from an old piece of maple I have in my stock pile. I chose just this neck among the other I have because of the tap tone. It is perfect match to the body. A rosewood fretboard and medium high frets give this guitar an incredible tone and a marvelous sustain.
