“THE COVEN “
Here she is .. I’m just going through the switches to show the multi combos i and get with this thing . amp is set a little dirty and some cleaner reverb here .
The cigar box type *body * of this guitar was made by a guy in turkey ..i got the empty body shell off ebay from him .. I of course had to alter it etc … . and back mount the neck .
The carved / embossed fretboard .. you can actually finger on pretty good , even though this is more of a slider .
My up coming new line of swampwitch guitars will all have that fretboard .
That cool 6 curved switch plate was actually off an old 60’s norma guitar . phazey hi /lo on off stuff .
The whammy bar is a fence latch ,
The tail is off a trunk .
drywall screw for a nut .
tele 4 way switch .
it looks like 10 pickups but is actually 6 - (4 hummbuckers and 2 singles )
2 jacks operate front 3 pups .. or back 3 .
Jack plate is a cut pen display case .
The finish was done with a lighter , steel wool and vinegar treatment , then another light lighter burn.
I just love this thing .. hope you do too !!!
