    This sweet guitar was made by Resurrection Guitars.
    It's so warm, full, and organic sounding...and plenty loud even unplugged.

    When plugged into the Shiva the tones are "Bouncing Around the Room".
    I really dig it!!!

    If I take my glasses off I could almost see a St@rC@ster. Liked'em then & like this one now. Looks light & comfy.

    Phretbored, your guitar is nice! I'd like to hear about the specs too. Can you split the 'buckers? Trey's sound is one of my favorites and the 'doc is beautiful. Your guitar is an awesome tribute as well as being cool in its own way.

    Would like to see pics of your Languedoc, kinkirsi!

    Peace~

    The more I play this guitar the more I am amazed at the organic soulful tone it delivers.
    It resonates like crazy!
    The body is made entirely from padauk.
    It's the first hollow I have ever owned where the body is all from the same wood and the tone is way different than I had anticipated.
    Every other hollow I own/have owned typically has maple and mahogany in the body.

    The neck is maple with a mahogany center and an ebony board.
    It has some nice bright snap but it is also warm.
    The carve is a little thicker than a Gibson Johnny A.
    It's very comfortable.
    The pickups are Duncans...not sure which ones exactly because I haven't looked under them yet.
    Sometimes I don't care for Duncans...they are not my favorite...but they are a great match for the guitar.
    Schaller Golden 50's were too hard to come by is why the Duncans were used.
    Do they still make the Schaller Golden 50's?
    The electronics are just volume, tone, and a 3-way.

    This kind of design with a 25.5 set neck and a hollow body is really amazing.

    I need to give props to the guys at Resurrection.
    They have mad skills.
    Even though this particular guitar was purchased used from the original owner I would not hesitate to order another guitar from them based on how impressive this instrument is.

    I also need to give props to Fender for the Starcaster, Paul Langeudoc, and Trey!

    Here are some close ups of the top and back...
    Also check out the volute on this one!...

    Kinkirsi,

    Please post some pics of your 'doc!

    I would love to play one of those.
    So far the opportunity to purchase or commission a 'doc has not presented itself but I am always looking.

    Right now though this Resurrection is my #1.
    Even if I get a 'doc or another Resurrection this one will stay here for a long time.

    That's the way they built it and I sure wouldn't change anything because this guitar has heart and soul.
    The neck and headstock are not cut from one piece of wood so I suppose something sturdy is needed.
    It could also be there if that is how Trey's 'doc is built?

    rickdiculous,

    Yeah I believe you when you say it is warm, soulful, and woody (I like to call that organic) sounding.
    Perhaps this design just lends itself very well to that kind of tone?
    Those Duncan Antiquity pickups are outstanding!
    Recently I heard some in a Johan Gustavsson guitar and they are the most incredible Duncans I have ever heard.
    Duncans are not always my fav pickups but the Antiquities are off the hook.

    I'm not sure how your tailpiece is attached but on my guitar it slides/snaps onto a metal post mounted under and through the top.
    I think that it allows the tailpiece to really resonate along with the top in a fantastic way.

    Trey's guitar doesn't have the bump on the back of the neck. The bump is something that was originally done by Stephen Cripes (builder of Jerry's Lightning Bolt and a couple of Kimock's guitars), who did it for some reason to make the guitar feel right. Resurrection is carrying on this tradition - they have it on all of their guitars....even the strat looking guitars.

    You can see the bump on this pic of one of Kimock's Cripes (if i can get the url to work)
