wrnchbndr's photos: Ric Capri Style Tenor Body


The body is ash. Bridge and tailpiece are hand carved from aluminum. Pickups are from Allparts and are Hofner bass humcanceling replicas yet chime as well as I could ever hope. No tone control to keep the front simple. The pickguard is 0.90 celluloid tortoise and I had just enough to do the rear control cavity and trussrod cover also. The finish is Mohawk Musical Instrument lacquer with a a base coat of vintage amber tint followed by black tint and then solid black pigment with three coats of clear on top.
