Juliet #003 – £3270.00
The Hollow Body Juliet- an absolute pleasure to build!
Utilising the finest woods – all master-grade on this model- and carefully selected hardware, resulting in a really classy looking, beautifully versatile and instantly playable guitar.
The top is one of the finest sets of Ziricote I think I have ever worked with, absolutely stunning figuring and contrast. The body material is genuine Honduran Mahogany, with a contoured back carve for comfortable fit against the body. The neck is a three piece 5A Flame Roasted (Thermally Modified) maple construction- again, featuring some of the finest flame figuring available. All of this is finished off with a 5A figured Imbuya fingerboard featuring ebony position markers. The body, headstock and F-Hole are finished with cream binding. Inside the body cavity, an ‘Ambler Customs’ badge is affixed, finished in chrome.
Pickups are a McNelly Pickups ‘Stagger Swagger’ set, a really uniquely voiced and well rounded set of Z-coils, very versatile. Finished in a soapbar housing with silver foil covers.
The bridge and vibrato are by Duesenberg, the tremolo being one of their Les-Trem models. This trem is perfectly balanced and works an absolutely charm – no tuning issues that you might find affect bigsby style trems. Not to your taste? This can be removed and replaced easily by a stop tail-piece, turning the bridge set-up into a tune-o-matic.
The hardware is finished off with Gotoh Machine heads, a solid brass nut and stainless steel frets.
Finished in a high gloss, ‘wet-look’ Lacquer.
The guitar is beautifully balanced and sounds sublime. As always, this guitar was completely handmade by myself, comes with a hardcase and certificate of authenticity.
