Handcrafted in Sydney by a local luthier, this one of a kind Offset guitar was an award winning entry within a recent global guitar building competition, where it received accolades from a number of respected judges, master builders and luthiers.
Based on a strong royal theme, it goes without saying that no effort or expense was spared in the sourcing of components for this Offset, along with meticulous attention to detail and styling in construction.
All design elements and finishes were done by the builder, apart from the body and brass work which where CNC’d and laser cutter for accuracy locally.
This guitar is a two piece mahogany body that pays homage to the original 62 JM shape. Paintwork is a colour-shift purple-blue pearl with gold pinstripe accents, all topped off with a high-gloss polished polyurethane clear.
It features a single piece laser cut brass pick-guard cage, headstock plate and accent fleur-de-lis that have been meticulously hand polished and secured with slotted pan head brass screws throughout.
The neck is a USA sourced Fender approved/licenced 9.5” radius maple neck with rosewood fingerboard, with matching painted headstock and pinstriping. The neck has been finished in hi-gloss polished polyurethane, and features a stainless steel ZeroGlide zero fret that leads to Hipshot open gear staggered locking tuners.
Hardware starts with a NOS Cobain USA floating tremolo that flows over an American Pro JM bridge. Internals include vintage cloth wiring, Switchcraft and CTS components, treble bleed, knurled controls, and switch tips - all sourced new from the USA.
Pickups are Fender Custom Shop 69's and 1 X Texas Special (4 in total) that have been wired in serial as HB's, and can be split via switches to single coils. It also includes an integrated latching kill-all switch.
This is a totally unique and very classy Offset style guitar that plays beautifully, sounds great and will certainly turn some heads. A stunning collectors piece.
Comes with a brand new Fender JM/Jaguar hardshell case for a perfect fit.
