This guitar is an attempt to join the powers of three famous guitars: the fat Strat, Strat  and Tele. It has a fat Virola body for an exeptional resonating tone. It is extremely light. The top is 1/2" book-matched  Brazilian Kingwood. The mini-humbucker pickups are custom-wound by Tesla to achieve a balanced spread of loudness.
They are switchable from humbucker to single coil for a classic strat or tele sound.

It is hand numbered (07-1) and hand-signed as are all my
guitars.
I have built 27 custom versions.

A truly vintage feel and look with a glassy hand lacquered finish. Pick your type of strap buttons. The knob on the five-way will be black. Choice of sleek flat crown for leads or round crowned frets for general playing.
