    Flame maple veneer top over lightweight swamp ash with vintage style binding and a nitrocellulose lacquer sunburst finish. Scott lacquered and tinted the guard, knobs and switch tip for that warm "vintage" look.

    The neck is our usual big Lentz profile. Lightweight and resonant with a Indian rosewood fingerboard inlayed with crowns.

    Lentz B'Kaster pickup in the "treble" position and L-90 in the "rhythm"

    ...hey Michael...John A here...looks like you replaced one fine Lentz with yet another...you must be bursting to play it.:RoCkIn

    ..."Smokin Lentz" sounds like a good uptempo-ish blues number for the cats...dig?:rotflmao

    I'm loving that guitar, just not crazy about that 'guard on top.

    ...I think my DL90 (Chip) also has a "lacquered-up," celluloid pickguard...I can't go back either.

    Would love to hear the report on how it sounds straight into that tweed super. I'm a traditionlist to say the least, but I just LOVE the look of these guitars.

    How is the output voiced on the back single-coil pickup? Is it hot or more round and toneful? Both?
