I guess I should include this one. Hope Grant doesn't mind me reusing one of his pics.

Body is Korina. Made by G&B in the UK (https://guitarandbassbuilds.com/). Neck is AllParts. It's the fattest 'D' neck I've ever encountered. Massive. Pickups are from Q Pickups in Croatia (that well known hotbed of Texas tone - https://www.qpickups.com). Nice aged guard and an especially good finish. It was put together and thin-nitro painted by GrantB. It's the nicest colour when you see it in the flesh. Weighs just under 8.5 lbs. Sounds nothing like my ash / maple '54 reissue (as you might expect). Great for Sayce overdriven tones and Knopfler cleans.

I often picture Grant with a fat D in his hands.
The one about the fucking hairdresser, the space hairdresser and the cowboy. The guy, he's got a tin foil pal and a pedal bin. His father's a robot and he's fucking fucked his sister. Lego! They're all made of fucking Lego.

Easy, just throw a bucket of shit over your amp, 80's Clapton tone.

Wow you run your pickups really low, or is that pre setup?

How long did it take for the finish to crack like that?

One night when it spent the night with the guitar tech, he must have left it out in the cold ha ha. If you even look at the finish it cracks, dents or falls off can’t wait to see how it looks in 5 years.
