So… here’s 0090 aka Abigail. The aging detail is simply MIND-BLOWINGLY gorgeous. She has vintage Broedcaster style pickups and a perfectly fitting, heavily aged “V” profile neck, just to push this baby that much further over the top. She sounds alive, resonant and deep unamped. Going through a tube amp…she can do it all from James Burton, Waylon Jennings, Kieth Richards, Bruce Springsteen, Merle Haggard, Brad Paisley and many many more.
