Amber
Before

Amber is a custom-made double-cutaway semi-hollowbody guitar made for me by Benbensoo in China.  The Maple top is tinted dark amber..  Ivory binding on the body and neck.  The original pickups and wiring were replaced with '59 PAF humbuckers and vintage style braided shield cotton insulated stranded wire.


The PAFs were wired out-of-phase with the switch in the middle position.


A DeLisle Pentatone switch was installed where the original output jack was located.  The output jack was relocated to the lower side bout.


A roller bridge replaces the original standard bridge.


After set up, the guitar plays beautifully.  It is light weight and responsive.
