headstock. The body and headstock also have a thin

this one has a maple body, 5-piece all maple neck with "pointy"
headstock, ebony fingerboard with abalone block inlays, Hipshot
detuner, Straploks and chrome hardware. I had the older, large
Carvin logo used on the headstock, and the Bunny Brunel logo applied
to the back. It's finished in Dragonburst (sometimes called

also has a piezo bridge, with a blend control to blend it with the
