Waterslide Coodercaster 50's Sunburst Strat w/Mojo UK Lap Steel & Vintage Teisco Gold Foil Pickups

0.00

This is one of my newest custom made Waterslide Coodercaster guitars and it's all "Made in the USA". 

This Coodercaster features an Alder body with a 1950's-style Two Tone Sunburst Nitrocellulose Lacquer finish that's been relic'd and aged. The whole guitar weighs in at 7lbs 14oz total so it's light for a Coodercaster with great balance & no neck dive.

The Roasted Maple & Rosewood neck has a nice chunky Boatneck profile with a 25.5" scale length. It's 1 11/16" at the nut with a 10" radius and 6105 frets. It has a light, slightly tinted satin finish that feels great and will not get sticky when playing. 

The bridge pickup is a Valco-style Lap Steel Pickup by Mojo Pickups UK. I have both Lollar and vintage Valco lap steel pickups to compare this with and the Mojo nails the vintage sound and design. Very fat with tons of sustain and punch. Primarily used by slide players like Ry Cooder, Jason Isbell and Blake Mills, these Lap Steel pickups have a special magic with open tunings and bottleneck playing.

The neck pickup is a vintage 60's-era Teisco Gold Foil that holds its own with the Lap Steel pickup with a sweet top end and clarity that provides a nice complement, tonally. 

The Strat tremolo is by Gotoh with a Steel Block and stainless steel saddles.


There's also CTS audio taper pots, a 3-way Oak Grigsby switch, Sprague Orange Drop and cloth covered wiring. The vintage style radio knobs are easy to grab and look great with the Tortoise guard.

Great parts and great care go into these guitars and this one comes in a hardshell case for $1,499 + shipping. Please email me for international shipping rates.

Demo video was recorded straight into GarageBand so no amps or pedals were used: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xHxIMXlDbxI
