Waterslide Coodercaster Mary Qué Blonde Maple 'D' Neck, Mojo Lap Steel & Gold Foil Pickups Kaye

0.00

This is one of my newest custom made Waterslide Coodercaster guitars and it's all "Made in the USA". As with all of my builds, if you like this guitar but would prefer a different neck, pickguard, pickups, etc, just send me a message and we'll see what we can do.

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.

This guitar features a beautifully aged Transparent 'Mary Kaye' Blonde finish on a lightweight Swamp Ash body with beautiful grain. The guitar weighs in at 7lbs 14oz so it's a nice weight for a Coodercaster with tons of sustain & great balance.

The Maple neck has a late-60's 'D' profile that is medium thickness (.82" - .88") and a 25.5" scale length that's 1.685" at the bone nut with a vintage 7.25" 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 Gold Foil pickup which recreates Teisco's design from the 60's. It holds its own with the Lap Steel pickup with a sweet top end and clarity that provides a nice complement, tonally. We've inlaid a fiery piece of celluloid over the gold foil to give it a little extra fire, visually.

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

There's also CTS audio taper pots, a Paper In Oil .047 cap and cloth covered wiring. The vintage-style radio knobs with matching celluloid accents tie it all together.

Great parts and great care go into these guitars and this one comes in a hardshell case for $1,949 + Shipping. Please email me for international shipping rates.

I also take custom orders!
