Silvertone Maxwell from Specimen Guitars

With one of my Baby '71 Humbucker Sized Wide Range Pickups

Here's a wonderfully offbeat guitar from Chicago based luthier Ian Schneller. Its owned by quite a well-known guitarist/frontman who wanted one of my Baby '71 standard Humbucker sized Wide Range pickups installed.

Silvertone Maxwell from Specimen Guitars with Creamery Custom Handwound Baby '71 Wide Range Humbucker Pickup

Its great playing a guitar that strays away from the usual styles & brands, and with just a single volume control, its up to the player to coax different sounds from it.

You can find more about Ian's work at his website here, and more details of my standard Humbucker sized Wide Range Pickups here.

I'm going to be featuring more interesting guitars I've worked on here on the blog - Just because I make them myself, doesn't mean I can't shout about other people's work. I know how much time & effort goes into building a guitar so a glass should be raised to others who make them too (and I do like to raise a glass ;-)
