Custom guitar built on unfinished Epiphone Custom Shop WildKat
body, with Fralin pickups and Bigsby
This is my personal "dream guitar."  

It started as a sanded-down Epiphone "Kat"
body and neck - no hardware or finish.  Smaller
than a 335, bigger than a Les Paul body.

I filled in wood defects and changed the shape
of some holes, slimmed the neck, and had it
painted white to start my all gold-and-white
color scheme.  

My logo was inlaid in abalone in the headstock.  

My plastics supplier custom-made white
perloid switch covers and the truss rod cover.
Electronics are:

- Gold Lindy Fralin "Twangmasters" (8000 and 8500
winds), hum-cancelling single-coils in a humbucker
form-factor.  Very bright and articulate!

- Gold pickup switch, tone, and two volumes, one of
which is push-pull for out-of-phase wiring,

- Shock-protection capacitor to string ground
Gold locking Grover tuners and a handmade bone nut
complete the headstock area.

The bridge is a gold roller bridge with adjustable
action, string spacing, and intonation.

The Tailpiece is a gold Bigsby B-60 tremolo.

The Gold jack is in a gold football-jackplate.

The pots are held on with gold nuts and washers and
capped with Gretch-style gold knobs
