#068 Redwood Koencaster for Nate Wilkinson


#068 One piece back in Old-Growth Reclaimed Flamed Redwood

A Ted Greene inspired pickup configuration with three Ron Ellis Pickups. A recessed ebony control plate provides an elegant and low height adjustment to the ebony knobs since both volume knobs are push/push coil taps (So in up position, the bottom of the knobs remain almost flush to the top). The middle knob is an independent volume for the middle pickup which acts like a blend control into the basic tele pickup setup.
