This very special thinline guitar is made of African padouk. The body is sawn in pieces, chambered and reglued in a way it looks like a one piece of wood again. The guitar has plenty amount of sustain, and still has that nice sparkling character. The neck pickup is a Lollar Charlie Christian pickup. It gives a P90-ish sound, but with more high respons and very much dynamics. More to be comparted with old vintage DeArmond pickups.
