MEDUSA SPECIAL

There was only one Medusa Special made.
She was made in
1988 and is owned by Ashley Jones who bought her new in 
the same year from '
Cranes' in Cardiff, Wales, UK.

She has a one piece Pad'auk body with a Maple neck, Rosewood fingerboard, ebony 
head-face,
'dot' Mother-of -Pearl fingerboard inlays, Mother-of-Pearl head-face inlays, 
a pair of 
EMG pickups - 81/85 (The 'Bridge' one angled), Kahler Pro Tremolo unit 
and 
Schaller machines. 24 3/4" scale length. Natural clear lacquer finish.

An interesting 'point' with this guitar is that it shows the 'Stepped neck joint' I evolved
when designing both the
Medusa and Electra Series.

All the other
Medusa Standard Guitars has solid colour finishes, as did the Electra Guitars,
so it's great for me that this guitar with the
clear finish shows the neck joint in detail.
