NHD - Stike's magic on an old Blitz

Recommended Posts

FINALLY got this built-out with custom pups, an original Sustainblock, and Wiggins knobs.  Long-gone is the Kahler top-mount, the EMGs, and the hazy candy-apple finish from the 1980s.  Really, REALLY happy with it.

Very cool!  When you say it had a 'hazy candy-apple finish from the 1980's' before, it sounds to me like the old Hamer Ferrari Red finish, which tended to age to a dull hazy finish.  I had a '80's Hamer in Ferrari Red once, it was not my favorite Hamer color either.

For some reason, that new color scheme reminds me of a song...

Piet Mondrian, paging Mr. Piet Mondrian to the white courtesy canvas. ;)

Well done, sir! Stellar work from Stike per usual!

Cool.  Any way you can show a better picture of the knobs, and tell the story behind them?

Glad to see that one completed!  I saw it in early phases, and it looked incredibly cool then...this is just off the charts.

Neck pickup is a custom Duncan Sentient humbucker with a Jason Becker two-tone spool.

They're hand-blown glass knobs by Wiggins.  I called them and made a color request, and they took it from there....

I JUST checked their website, and my custom knobs are posted in their gallery:

Excellent work!

Reminds me of the 1980's Mondrian-influenced La Vie Claire/Look cycling team.

Thanks!  They look great.  I'd never seen their website before, and was intrigued by another guitar with similar glass knobs recently.   It's a great idea, and yours look fantastic.

Quite a bit off topic but I'd have gladly shagged Shirley Jones and Susan Dey together, back in the day. Actually, I was likely a bit too young to be doing that back in the early 70's....

Love the Lace pickups. I have a set of alumitones in one guitar. The concept works really great.

Didn't Greg LeMond ride for them in '85?
