    Nice choice. That one had a Klein Epic '56 set, killer pickups. I used an American vintage tremelo, vintage spacing.

    All done! with the bar room backstory. got sidetracked doing relic work for other people. The guard is actually more brown than it appears. Light does strange things.

    It started life off as a Nash S57, wanted something with a lot err ... less damage, lovely swamp ash, love the grain, it's light and resonant and was a perfect fit in all things

    I just got this back from being put together by Dan over at Guitar Sanctuary. A beautiful "The One" as if was just bought new.

    MJT body, a really nice blonde finish. Allparts roasted maple neck, after some tweaking/sanding it`s really close to my old `56. A couple of thin coats of Tru-oil.
    The hardware is mostly repro parts aged by me, the knobs are vintage ones. Seymour Duncan Antiquity I in the bridge and `55 in the neck. A killer guitar!
    A friend of mine did the laser engraved logo.

    My parts-MJT-caster.

    Started life as a 05 Malmsteen strat with an American Special 3 pc poly body in CAR. Neck and bridge are Dimarzio, but origin of the middle pickup unknown.

    Won this Tangerine body from MJT. Requested for an aged mint guard and holes drilled with strap buttons installed. Went with the American special bridge (vintage spacing but with 52mm saddles spacing - perfect for the scalloped neck with very rounded fret edges) that came with the guitar.

    Replaced all the Dimarzio brand covers with blank ones. Love it!

    Need "Faith" - It's a keeper. This body came on 15 Sep, a day that my life was turned upside down. It will be a reminder for me of this day.
