The one and only Radian SS-7 from way back in 2010.

Sapele body, maple neck. Open pore black-burst finish on the body and satin lacquer on the neck. DiMarzio D Activator 7 pickup (IIRC). I still have a few of these bodies left if you’re interested in getting one of these for yourself in the six-string format. Seven-string can still be done, but it takes a bit more fussing.

60s Rosewood Stratocaster, Fender Custom Shop Masterbuilt. 

This beast makes me wonder why no-one has ever asked me to build an all-rosewood guitar before. Only one person has asked for an all rosewood neck! I have the rosewood just sitting there, waiting…

Ever wonder what happens to the offcuts of exotic tropical hardwoods left over from guitar making? At Ash Customworks, I make the useful bits into other things like these hand crafted target slingshots. Black alder from a Radian P-Bass, Sapele from a Diablo II, Rosewood and Purpleheart from many fretboard ends…

Bing Wrights: Broken Mirror / Evening Sky , 2012

James Harris Gallery is pleased to present Broken Mirror/Evening Sky, a new series of striking landscape photographs by New York based artist Bing Wright. Departing from his usual pared down images in grey palettes, Wright offers us moving skyscape photographs of richly colored sunsets reflected onto broken mirrors. This new body of work marks his first return to color photography in almost a decade.

Fresh from the Spray-Tan-Booth! Both these tele bodies are lovely light-weight Korina and the blaze yellow one is a bit flamey. It’s routed Cabronita style with a single Filtertron cavity in the bridge position and rear routed control cavity. The trans-surf-green one is routed to suit a Thinline pickguard and vintage style tele bridge. The neck pickup cavity is for P90, but can also take a Mini-HB, Filtertron, Firebird, Strat SC or Tele SC with the right choice of pickguard. They are both available to DIY builders for a short time, but I will build them up as full Radian guitars if anyone wants to claim one for themselves. $350 for the yellow and $250 for the green (as it has a couple of minor dents that I don’t have time to fix right now). ash at ashcustomworks dot com
