This is my tribute to the classic surfing film “Endless Summer”. The one piece body is Marupa from Brazil, the maple/maple set neck has a matching headstock c/w hologram logo. The hardware is largely antique copper/bronze while the single pickup is a GFS vintage NOS Liverpool model for that classic jangle from the 60s & 70s. Yours for the taking, take a blast to past with this rock and roll beauty.

REfab

Here is the “Refab” guitar, made with a Dominican pine body which bled yellow stain into the gloss white paint. It has been re-cleared to seal everything into place and has been rebuilt with new humbuckers, rosewood/maple set neck, bridge, tuners, and electronics. It now is a true “closet relic” with great playability and tone, perfect for those desiring a guitar that looks aged.

Here is “Eddie”; a guitar which pays homage to Eddie Rickenback, WW1 American flying ace who shot down 26 enemy planes in only two months. Eddie was cousin to Adolph Rickenbacker who founded Rickenbacker guitar company. Pictured on the front of the guitar is Eddie’s Spad XIII, the famous squadron “hat in ring” is shown on the camouflage headstock. If you’d like a piece of history, this is for you.

Fancypants

This is “Fancypants: It is loaded for looks, tone and playability - **warning**, it’s not a flea weight guitar. Built with solid Canadian black walnut, it’s a sound machine unlike any other. First thing to notice is all the turquoise - tuner knobs, control knob tops, fret markers and of course the entire perimeter sports the mystic blue stone inlays. Branded with the Texas Special logo, this gorgeous instrument has the tone to back up its great looks with three golf foil pickups and 5 way switch

Blue Baby

Here is Blue Baby: a scaled down, semi solid Turner style body makes this a featherweight with lottsa punch from the overwound blue humbuckers. The classic stamped steel tailpiece with a tune-o-matic bridge make it sing true. The maple/rosewood necksporting sealed tuners keep everything in tune. This beauty has a blender pot instead of a regular switch for infinite mixing of the two pickups…… you’ll love playing and owning this gem.
