Funny looking for sure, but this is the work of a guy who really thinks about how a guitar can be, why and why not. There are a very small number of reasons why most guitars look as they do and the main one is usually, “because that’s how they’ve always been”.

Customworks Tele - rebuild from an earlier Radian with a mahogany neck and lots of gold Gotoh bling. The one-piece sapele body makes it a sustain machine and the mahogany neck softens the tone up compared to the maple neck it previously had. Great guitar!

Radian Lavender Tele - Korina body, DiMarzio Super Distortion P90, CSP P90, Gotoh SG381 tuners, Maple Modern neck (22 jumbo frets, 12” radius). Full price would normally be $1750, but I’m in a haggling mood, so make an offer during the next week :D
