Waterslide Coodercaster Black Nitro Maple+Rosewood Neck, Mojo Lap Steel+Guyatone Gold Foil Pickups

0.00

Made in the USA, this guitar features a beautifully aged Black Nitro Lacquer finish with a Tortoise guard on a lightweight Alder body. The guitar weighs in at 7lbs 15oz so it's a nice weight for a Coodercaster with tons of sustain & great balance.

Those of you familiar with Coodercasters know that the design of these old Valco-style lap steel pickups typically results in a middle position where three strings are in-phase and three are out. We've worked with Mojo to come up with a solution to that problem so all Waterslide Coodercasters with Mojo UK Lap Steel & Gold Foil pickups now feature our new switching system which allows all six strings to be in-phase with each other when both pickups are 'on'. Check out the video below for an example of this in action.

The Maple neck with Rosewood fingerboard has a 50's Soft V-C profile (.87" - .97") and a 25.5" scale length that's 1 11/16" at the bone 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 Mojo UK 'Valco-Style' Lap Steel Pickup which is very fat sounding with tons of sustain and punch. These are uniquely sensitive pickups which nail the vintage character and tone of the original design. 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 Mojo UK reissue of a Guyatone Gold Foil pickup from the 60's. It's a bit fuller sounding when compared with a Teisco Gold Foil with a stronger midrange. It holds its own with the Lap Steel pickup with a sweet top end and bite that provides a nice complement to the bridge pickup, tonally.

The vintage-style Strat bridge is by Kluson with stainless steel saddles and a steel trem block.

There's also CTS audio taper pots, an Orange Drop .047 cap and cloth covered wiring. The vintage "Big Muf"-style HiFi knobs tie it all together.

Great parts and great care go into these guitars and this one comes in a hardshell case for $1,999 + Shipping. Please email me for international shipping rates.
