CHF Model

Here's another model that began life as a custom order, and proved to be such a winning combination of style and sound that I reproduced it in variations many times. This one pictured was made for the owner of Axis Instruments, and features the following:

  • Hollow-Chambered Mahogany body with AAA Flame Maple top, "C" Shape
  • Set-neck construction with tilt-back headstock, Mahogany
  • "Vintage V" neck profile
  • Indian Rosewood Fingerboard, Abalone Inlay
  • Wilkinson Classic Tremolo
  • Honey burst finish
  • Lindy Fralin Vintage Hot Strat Single Coil Pickups
  • Seymour Duncan Mini Humbucker Pickup

Variations:

Same as above, but:

  • Solid Mahogany body
  • 2 pickup configuration featuring Lollar P90 Pickups
  • Wraparound Tone Pros bridge/tailpiece

Also:

  • Various tonewoods
  • 2 pickup configuration featuring Lollar Imperial Humbucking Pickups
  • Acoustic bridge pickup w/custom blending electronics
