The guitar was a V52MRBS.

The guitar is a nod to a specific iconic guitar.

The body has been contoured to the front and the rear.

It has been distressed using staining to replicate a much older instrument.

The neck has received a stain and amber lacquer, which has been largely removed to show fingerboard wear.

The front pickup has been removed and a vintage style Bakelite scratchplate has been fitted.

The guitar has been rewired using to spec, giving full treble, variable treble and full bass using the Allparts EP-4373-000 three-way switch. Cloth wiring has been used through-out.
