Junk Yard Dog #006 £1920
Here is the latest incarnation of my ‘Junk Yard Dog’ Hound Dog models!
This one is quite different to the last few – it features a different metal finish, a higher level of corrosion to the metalwork, a matte lacquer finish and a longer scale length of 25.5″.
As with previous Junk Yard models, this is a Genuine Honduran Mahogany body with a real iron coating which has then been corroded with saltwater and acids. I took the corrosion process as far possible, letting the colours and patina develop over a long period of time before neutralising the reaction and applying a matte lacquer coating, to preserve the delicate patina and give a smooth feel finish.
The neck is a one piece Rock Maple construction, with a faded translucent black stain and Ebony fingerboard. The neck has been finished naturally to give a super smooth feel-sanded to a fine grit and then carefully oiled.
All the components on this guitar have been carefully aged to match the rusted Iron. The ‘Mad Max’ bridge is from cut steel plate and uses Graphtech individual saddles. Tuners are Kluson Les Paul style with aged amber buttons and the volume and tone controls are corroded and lacquered. The beautifully voiced Seymour Duncan P90 ‘Antiquity’ pickups summon the tones – crystal clear cleans to high gain grit, all easily accessible and a joy to play. The fretboard features stainless steel frets and a 16″ radius, giving a low and fast action. All electrical components are of the finest quality, from the CTS pro pots, the Jupiter paper in oil caps, switchcraft toggle switch and even the finest wire available!
This guitar comes with a hardcase and certificate of Authenticity. If you have any questions, or would like to arrange a play test then please feel free to get in touch.
