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.
