Custom Guitar - Candy Apple Red "T"

This is one of my own personal T-style guitars finished in Candy Apple Red finish. It is definitely NOT for sale. The CAR finish has a gold base with a prominent metallic flake. The paint used is extremely high quality and very expensive. It has a thin urethane top coat. The body wood is alder and the neck is maple with a "C" profile....chunky, but no too thick. This guitar features the Rothstein headstock with a quilted maple veneer face. The mini-switch you see in the control plate is for coil-splitting on the Fralin Un-bucker in the neck position. I wanted a guitar that would work for both jazz and rock and this seems to do the trick. Here is quick sound sample of me playing some bebop.
