Maddy 111114

This little gem is Madeline and she was an idea that I had to modify a classic design to have a modern look.   For this design I changed the shape, decided not to do the pick guard or trem, laminated the peghead, and went for as light of weight as I could make her.

Her neck is quarter sawn Maple with a quarter sawn Maple fret board that has 22 frets made of stainless steel.  I laminated her peghead with wood to match the body top.  MOP logo inlaid into Ebony.  Her body is Butternut topped with some very nice Black Walnut.  All of the woods were grown local to me.  She is finished in my super durable matte/satin finish with only the fret board being gloss.  She will take wear and tear rather well and not show finger smudges.

In the pictures she is shown with Fender Custom Shop 54 pickups but we have since installed EMG SA single coil pickups with a SPC module to fatten her tone up even more.  These pickups are self grounded and noiseless.

Sperzel locking tuners and a Hipshot bridge for her hardware.  Dunlop straplock ready.

This guitar weighs only 6.6 lbs.  Nice classic tone that features sweet leads and a sultry rhythm.
