'53 Blackguard

Well I seem to be getting a lot of interest in my blackguard TC's and here's another it has the usual complement of 3Rguitars fittings, the owner wanted a heavily relic'd look with plenty of rust on the hardware. Here's the spec..

One peice light swamp ash body

One peice vintage construction neck

9.5 inch radius fretboard with wider than standard frets

All genuine Fender hardware

CTS pots cloth wiring

Fender vintage pickups

Nitro cellulose early blonde and clear lacquer heavily relic'd

Here's a taster of the finished job!
