Kit SixtyTwo

I took my inspiration for the KIT SIXTYTWO from the great American icons of the fifties and sixties. 

Specifications:

This guitar is built with a solid single piece African Mahogany body with a Maple neck and Rosewood fretboard all salvaged from a stately home. The neck is attached with threaded stainless-steel bolts into brass inserts embedded in the heel.

Electrics are two Bare Knuckle PAF single coils, custom CTS pots, custom Jensen capacitor and an Oak Grigsby four-way switch offering bridge, both in parallel, neck, and both in series.

Hardware is from Callaham consisting of nickel plated hard tail ST type bridge strung through body into stainless ferrules. Machine heads are also nickel plated Callaham slotted Klusons. Plastics are ’54 replica ‘Bakelite’ Pickup covers, knobs and switch tip.

Nitocellulose lacquer. Supplied with a Hiscox LiteFlite case.

Base price: £1600

Model shown: £1650
