  • RINGS – Throbak M-69 butyrate pickup rings “Bone colour”
  • CAPS – LUXE bumblebee Paper-in-Oil capacitors (from Donovan Whittemore in ’19)
  • THUMBWHEELS – Retrospec (brass)
  • KNOBS – DMC 59 bonnet knobs (bought in ’05)
  • STUDS – Pigtail “short” steel studs (bought from Steve Rowen in ’04)
  • TAILPIECE – Gibson vintage ’58 tailpiece (from a 1958 Les Paul Special that was modified in the 70’s with a Badass bridge; a gift from the owner)
  • FLIGHTCASE – The custom flightcase was made in 2011 by in Québec.
