Custom guitar built on unfinished Epiphone Custom Shop WildKat body, with Fralin pickups and Bigsby
This is my personal "dream guitar."
It started as a sanded-down Epiphone "Kat" body and neck - no hardware or finish. Smaller than a 335, bigger than a Les Paul body.
I filled in wood defects and changed the shape of some holes, slimmed the neck, and had it painted white to start my all gold-and-white color scheme.
My logo was inlaid in abalone in the headstock.
My plastics supplier custom-made white perloid switch covers and the truss rod cover.
- Gold Lindy Fralin "Twangmasters" (8000 and 8500 winds), hum-cancelling single-coils in a humbucker form-factor. Very bright and articulate!
- Gold pickup switch, tone, and two volumes, one of which is push-pull for out-of-phase wiring,
- Shock-protection capacitor to string ground
Gold locking Grover tuners and a handmade bone nut complete the headstock area.
The bridge is a gold roller bridge with adjustable action, string spacing, and intonation.
The Tailpiece is a gold Bigsby B-60 tremolo.
The Gold jack is in a gold football-jackplate.
The pots are held on with gold nuts and washers and capped with Gretch-style gold knobs
