2010 Penfold Replicaster

rptele5This was my first guitar project.  They body, which is a spalted maple top on an alder back, was handmade by a builder in Quebec.  I dyed it and finished it with nitrocellulose lacquer (16 coats) and polished it to a high gloss.  The neck is a birdseye maple neck from Warmoth in Washington.  All the components are Fender parts including the “Noiseless” Telecaster pick-ups.  I created my own headstock logo using a waterslide decal.

Body – spalted maple top on an alder body
Body Finish – nitrocellulose lacquer buffed to high gloss
