ROYAL 'THRU-NECK' CUSTOM 1988

"That Guitar".....see Personal Reviews.

 

We're hoping to get better 'frontal' pix as soon as possible.

This guitar was made in 1988 as a custom order for Nigel Cowley (Nidge).

Nidge goes into some detail in his Review about the various bits and bobs concerning
this guitar, so I'll leave that to him. There is a link at the bottom of this page.....

.....but basically she has a Maple Thru-neck with Mahogany wings and a 25 1/2" Ebony 
Fingerboard
with 3/16th" Mother-of-Pearl dots and discrete MOP Crown inlay on the Ebony 
head-face
of the headstock, 
She is equipped with a Jackson Pickup, Kahler Pro Trem, Schaller Machines a single volume 
control
but also a pre-settable Jackson onboard preamp.
One of the most important features to Nidge was the lack of a 'heal' allowing the large quantity 
of wood to be carved away
where a standard neck joint would be..... this gives pretty un-paralleled 
access
to the top frets..... and the pix below show this quite well. 

The colour is actually Coral, or as Nidge says - "Picato Red".
I did a Medusa Junior Guitar for the Picato Strings stand at the BMF in 1989, in 
this colour, but although she was made later than this guitar - I think "
Picato Red
is a very suitable name.

 

These pix show Nidge's favorite bits - the rear contours !
