The James Hood Teleblaster Blackie
This sweet looking "Assembled in USA" rig is an instant icon, borrowing obvious design cues from the most ubiquitous bolt on neck guitars in the industry. No expense is spared in the selection and assembly of these extreme double cutaway black bodies all dressed up in tuxedo white volume and control knobs and chrome hardware. As good as they look, they sound and play even better with copper shielding, pro-set up, heavy duty pots, and vintage alnico 5 single coil pickups that deliver those sweet, familiar single coil tones.
Only 12 of these custom, small batch, serial numbered, limited edition guitars have been made.
