Hello, I'd like to share with you the latest build from my father, hope you like it, i like it a lot. I took the info from his site. Greetings Nook " Just finished the build of a new guitar and call it 'Fleet' because of the versatility; it's a fleet of guitars in one.. The intention was to combine the best features of two popular classics - stratocaster and les paul- but it turned out te be even more then that! Things I like in the stratocaster are: - Sound of the single coil neck-pickup and combination neck and middle pup. - Tight lower strings due to the 25.5" scale (downside is that the high strings are a bit tight, that's why some guitarplayers tune it down). - Comfortable shape and appearance of the body (only that neck-to-body connection is uncomfortable and not very pretty). Good things in the les paul: - Smooth playable due to the 24.75" scale. (downside is the low strings can be a bit slack with a muddy sound). - Sound of the bridge pickup (paf humbucker). Now about the Fleet: - Multiscale 25.5" - 24.75" (low E - high E) to keep the low strings tight and the high strings smooth. - Body: Marupa-wood, shape is comfortable, modern ánd oldscool; a bit influenced by the strat and the deep neck inplant comes from the les paul. - Neck: 7-piece laminated Marupa, Chontaduro and Bloodwood with two-way adjustable truss rod. - Fretboard: Chontaduro, 15" radius, stainless steel frets. - Bridge: Gotoh Floyd Rose with locking nut. - Pickups: Neck and Middle are single coils build to get the best strat-sounds, Bridge is a double coil with two very different coils which gives a very dynamic result and effective coil-split in combination with middle and/or neck pup(s). The pickups can very easy be adjusted in height at the backside of the guitar. - Electronics: 6-way/4-pole rotary switch, 1 volume push/pull, 1 tone push/pull (no load) which result in 20 different switch options/combinations in parallel/series, single coil all combinations or with bridge double coil (split to single or not); f.e. neck s.c./ bridge south or north single coil, or even neck/middle switched to humbucker or in series with bridge (tribucker or megabucker). All sounds between strat and les paul can be done, and beyond! This guitar can go from blues/jazz, country picking to classic (hard) rock and metal.. Offcourse I can build them in several types of wood with top or in colour, adjust the pickups to however you may want it. Good body-shape for a bass as well. But the one on the pictures is mine! "
