This custom hand made prototype guitar is part of my 25th anniversary and is my homage to the man Les Paul. It has a chambered body traced straight from one of my LP specials and made from high quality solid Queensland pine laminate. The neck is also made from the same laminate with a rosewood 24 fret fretboard with zero fret. 

The body contains hand made Tym low output pickups and effects with an active HP/LP filter and a Savage Toecutter running off a single 9V battery located under the small scratchplate under the pickups. See below and/or check my BLOG for full specs.
