A few years back, I came across a guitar in the staging area of a pawn shop. I saw it, played it briefly, and bought it immediately after. I know nothing about it, but I'm hoping to gain some more knowledge about it by running it by the collective.
First things first - here's a picture:
This is what I know:
- I believe the pickguard is nickel. There are four custom parts; the guard, the bridge cover, the plug cover, and a truss rod cover.
- The body is swamp ash.
- The neck is from a Peavey T-90 - however, it is clearly not a Peavey T-90.
- It's a telecaster-style body
I think it is custom engraved - I haven't seen anything else like it ever (Teisco's from the 70s were close), but I'm hoping someone knows something about this that I don't. The engraving is absolutely stunning, and it really doesn't look like an amateur did it. Any information about value would be awesome as well. Is there anything I can look for to get more information about it?
