newhyb5raw3.jpg (362116 bytes) The first Casta model. This is the prototype I constructed in May of
2003. All contours are hand shaped.
It is set up for three screaming golden age humbuckers, vol./tone and a
5-way position switch and a standard/floating tremolo unit. The
slightly angled short headstock and self-lubricating string nut eliminates
any tuning problems. This model sold
to Bob Weir (Grateful Dead). I like working under the sun.
