Briggs Guitars Custom Apollo #1407 - 2018

Jack Briggs builds some of the best electric guitars on the planet, and certainly some of the most beautiful. This is an impeccably specced homage to the 50s era set-neck electric single cutaway guitar. Sound and playability are simply off the charts, and with the added versatility of Jack’s Slim-Fat control, which decreases the output of the secondary hum cancelling coil, you are able to nail fat gibson style tones to pristine single coil tones and anywhere in between.

The top is a gorgeous Eastern Hard Rock maple, with beautiful mineral streaks and flame. Jack sprayed an amazing ‘un-burst’, also known as lemon drop, a the results are outstandingly beautiful.

The fretboard is gorgeous and excellent sounding figured Brazilian Rosewood. The neck carve is a sublime ‘56 boat carve, .90” at the first fret and .96” at the 12th, with a nut size of 1.71”, and with beautifully bound rolled edges. It doesn’t get better for playability and comfort.

The body and neck are both one piece Spanish cedar, the pickups are now Briggs Custom Winds - with the original Jim Rolphs ‘59 Pretenders included with the purchase (swapped as the Briggs sounded better to my ears), and the bridge is a compensated MojoAxe wrap around bridge. The electrical cavities on the back of the body are see-through tortoise shell.

The pick guard is hand made from Ebony, and the coup de grace is the super cool Epiphone Riviera style parallelogram mother of pearl inlays!

This is a once in a lifetime guitar, with no expense spared on the appointments and the design. Whomever takes this home will be a very happy human!
