AGP #372 - “South Carolina” - (3 String LPG)
The Box Body is recycled treated solid pine, heavily burnt in the Japanese “Shu Sugi Ban” style, or what’s more commonly known in Aus’as, “Burning the Shit out of it with a Propane Torch”, the Neck is an unknown recycled Aussie Hardwood, lightly scorched with the gas Bottle, both Neck and Body were then given a coat of Blue Food Colouring, and then a coat of Clear Acrylic Gloss, the original Alnico Single Coil Pup shown in some of the earlier Pics sat a bit too high and too close to the strings, so was replaced with an MGB 8.2k Seven Fitty Screamin Pickup, which sounds great!

"Thanks BQ", I couldn't agree more on the MGB low profile Pups, currently waiting on a delivery of 3 MGB Mini Box Buckers from Florida.  :-)
