Neck depth at first fret (not including fret) is 21mm, 24.75mm at the 12th , the neck is a comfortable C shaped profile with a nicely played in feel.

The deeply contoured body is lightweight and resonant and is nicely weather checked and aged with chips and dents in the appropriate places, forearm wear and buckle rash on the back.

The handmade ‘mint green’ guard is aged to suit and features vintage correct hole layout and 30 degree bevelled edge and under guard shielding plate. Vintage style hardware is fitted throughout, the tremolo features a steel block for enhanced tone and stamped saddles. Tuners are the vintage Kluson style...

Pickups are a set of hand wound Alan Dingwall ‘Spirit ‘62’s’, Alan is creating quite a buzz with his vintage correct pickups, they are made to painstaking detail and sound incredible...These are wired through CTS pots, a CRL 5 way switch and Switchcraft jack. The guitar is wired so the bottom tone pot acts on the bridge pickup with the middle tone pot controlling the other two...the capacitor is a 0.022 mfd...

The guitar plays beautifully and is lively and resonant, and weighting in at just 7lbs 6ozs is very shoulder friendly for long gigs, this is featherweight for a tremolo S type...
