    It's a Warmoth neck on a heavily modified Squier body, with a severely screwed up pickguard.:bag:

    Can't get much more exotic/unique/bizarre than some of the hybrids from Spalt:

    It is one of a kind as well as different.

    Thanks for the interest. The tone is very good considering that it is a 32" scale. I would say that it is bell like, the TI strings and Carvin pickups help. The 3 band active/passive EQ with 6 way switching between the MM and single coil also give it a tonal range that is pretty amazing.

    Spalt maple front and back of body, osage orange neck and body middle, tiger maple neck, wenge fretboard and flame maple cavity covers and accent piece at headpiece. Here is a photo from the back.

    The osage orange was an experiment, I love the bright orange color but it is a terrible wood to work with, very stringy and toxic. I don't think I will ever use it again, although the end product is very good.

    Nice, I've actually never heard of osage orange..

    I've read that working with cocobolo is toxic as well
