Waterslide Coodercaster 'Nicotine Blonde' w/ Roasted Maple Neck, Mojo UK Lap Steel+Gold Foil Pickups

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 "Nicotine Blonde" Nitro Lacquer finish on a lightweight Swamp Ash body. The guitar weighs in at 7lbs 13oz so it's a nice light weight for a Coodercaster with tons of sustain & great balance.

The Roasted Maple neck has a full 50's Soft V-C profile (.85" - .96") with 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 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.

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

There's also CTS audio taper pots, a Sprague Orange Drop cap and cloth covered wiring. The vintage-style Bakelite radio knobs tie it all together.

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

Demo video was recorded straight into GarageBand so no amps or pedals were used. Watch it HERE
