dwells in California's Bay Area. He built these twin 5-strings based on the Vox Phantom guitar. They each have a 14.5" scale, dual-action adjustable truss rods, radiused rosewood fingerboards and mostly Moongazer hardware. The white instrument sports DiMarzio pickups (DP186 and 188) with a coil tap (for a single-coil effect) as well as a three-position switch. It has a beech body with a parchment nitrocellulose finish, maple neck, tortoise plastic pickguard, and 19 frets. The body is string-through.
The red mandolin has a mahogany body and neck with a Bill Lawrence humbucker wired for coil-splitting and dual modes. It has a black/white/black pickguard and 18 frets, with strings terminating at the bridge. Its nitro finish is based on the classic Gibson SG cherry.
