    Built almost completely from a Standard Pitbull kit. Painted with Azure Lagoon from Wudtone on the body and ‘clear’ on the neck and finished in extra-gloss-no aging.

    I have used the standard Humbucker Pickups but significantly upgraded Capacitors to Orange drops and inserted two 150 Resistor and .001 mf caps too! Tricked out the standard humbuckers with gold trimming and swopped out the plastic nut for a brass one! Sustain! The fretboard is completed with Dr. Ducks Ax Wax for good measure!

    No pickguard on this model. Inserting the wiring was challenging and I have documented those challenges elsewhere in the forum. I have wanted a ‘335’ for sometime and this is going to be an enduring favourite guitar of mine.

    Highly recommend this Model to anyone wanting one. (Five stars!)
