Ziricote Stoptail

Personal build, 2018

For several years before I started making guitars, my dream guitar was a PRS Custom 24 with a stoptail bridge but they only ever came with trems (unless you had about £10k for Private Stock). I had a Paul's Guitar and really liked the switching system where both pickups could be coil split individually, it created a whole new level of versatility. So I decided to make my dream PRS style guitar.
