Another super light guitar. A chambered Sugar Pine body with Tortoiseshell binding and a maple neck made the same way as they did it back in the 1950s, with neck and fretboard all from one piece of Hard Rock Maple with a wallnut skunk stripe down the back.
The body is finished in Nitrocellulose lacquer tinted the same yellow as the Fobco Star drillpress seen in countless workshops around Britain.
A genuine mid-sixties Vistatone pickup sits in front of an original late 60s Telecaster bridge plate that had been cut down at some point in its history and updated with intonated brass saddles. This all delivers a really solid & fat tone in the style of the old Supro "Thunderstick".
