Aged Charcoal Frost Vintage cut ST body semi loaded
Here's a chance to grab one of our coveted vintage 50s-cut ST bodies bundled with a brand new Gotoh 510T-SF2 tremolo bridge, wide bevel mint green pickguard and aged jack plate cover. It's also fully shielded with conductive copper tape and comes with the strap buttons installed too.
This body was central to a complete showcase build for a guitar show earlier this year and has a beautiful greened out Charcoal Frost Metallic nitrocellulose finish with loads of natural lacquer checking and light wear. Looks just like a mid 60s custom colour should.
It's 2 piece American Alder as standard and the unloaded body weighed in at 1.85kg.
This is a real one time deal as the Gotoh 510T-SF2 is one of the best available vintage-look strat trems on the market and has an amazing smooth action with great tuinng stability. It's the trem of choice for many leading boutique manufacturers. A loaded body with these specs is normally £475.
The pickguard is hand aged and with a custom tooled wide bevel which was added in our workshop. The mint green colour looks just right too, more of a parchment in a way.
Strictly speaking this body should have an 8 hole pickguard as it has 50s routing, so one screw hole overlaps the cavity slightly but still has the p[urchse needed to bit in. This guard suits it so well in aesthetics though, we figured, 'what the hell!' Right?
