It has woodburned position markers, bullskull inlay, woodburned brand name and logo, and some extra woodburned details.The nut is made of a hoseclamp and the tailpiece is a nice spoon handle. Handcut soundhole with fencing, and a nice handmade bridge made from mahogany and Brazillian greenheart with a brass fret on top. The headstock is also made from mahogany. It has a handwound magnetic pickup (rosewood) and a piezo that is embedded in a rosewood cover in between the neck and soundboard.
