The guitar, that can be seen and heard in the Roxy & Elsewhere video documentary, is an highly modified early 60's model. It features two mini-switches for humbucker coil split and phase reverse and a Maestro-style vibrola with Lyre tailpiece replaces the traditional bridge.

  • 3-way pickup switch

  • Tune-O-Matic bridge with vibrola and engraved Lyre tailpiece
  • Early 60's-style 5-ply black pickguard
