This is it. This is my baby.
Built to my design & specs by Chris Larkin, I ordered it in May '95 & got the call to collect it in February '96. Worse than waiting for any baby.
I wanted to put my money into function, rather than looks. Basically, it has the best of both worlds. A 24 fret glue in neck to a Jackson type 3/4 size body.
