G 0824 'Sacred (African Queen)'

'Sacred' has a 27" longscale neck tuned to D.  The vintage clear-bobbin Gibson P-90 with striking green windings combines with a Graph-Tech piezo/hexaphonic "Ghost" system with 13-pin output.  The neck is Wenge (excellent wood for low-midrange tones) with a Bocote fingerboard.  The body is Mahogany.  The controls are grouped according to function - the hexaphonic volume and up-down controls on the upper bout and lower horn, the piezo/magnetic combination on the lower bout.  Sperzel locking tuners, Hipshot tremolo, Dunlop Straplocks.


The guitar was later modified.  A Lollar Charlie Christian was added in the neck position for more tonal flexibility.

B 0827 'Eyeful'

G 0828 'Rys'

Rys Olsen sacrificed an older original Steve Klein body to be 'totemized'.  With the blessings of Steve Klein I modified the body, adding art Rys had sent me, and replaced the  Steinberger graphite neck with a one-piece Rosewood neck, based on an old original Klein neck I had in hand.  A 'BoneTop' pickup drives the Sustainiac.

G 0829 'Woody'

Woody Aplanalp's second commission (the first is "Woody's Empress", G 0107) is themed 'Tiki'.  The electronics are simpler this time - a Fernandes Sustainer and a Lollar Imperial humbucker /minihumbucker combination with two military-grade kill switches.  Shark's teeth are inlaid in the fingerboard.  Mahogany body with Cedar top, bird's eye Maple neck w/ Cocobolo fingerboard.

Reincarnation of "Family Jewels" -  I decided to put in some BoneTop pickups to enhance the bright color scheme.   Lindy Fralin-based BoneTop "Unbucker" in the bridge with variable split via the second control knob.  P-90 style BoneTop in neck position.

0 838 '2 is Better than One'

Mahogany bod, mahogany neck with Madagascar Rosewood fingerboard.  BoneTop P-90 in the bridge and BoneTop SC in the neck position.  Wraparound tailpiece and vintage style Gotoh tuners.

G 0839 'V8.2'

I had the two vintage Guild pickups, a fullsize humbucker and a minihumbucker, for a while until I decided to combine them in this guitar.  Their slick chrome surface called for some shiny brightwork and the massive vintage Ford hood ornament supplied the string-through guide, with the strings passing through tubes to the string anchor machined from aluminum on the back of the guitar. Swamp Ash body w/Padouk centerstripe.  Zebrawood neck w/Purpleheart fingerboard.
