Kelly’s Custom

Kelly Ravin is a force. He composes, sings, and plays with intensity and passion. I was thrilled to be able to work on his new guitar.

This was a group effort – a local wood worker carved out a Telecaster style body from a chunk of butternut. The body went to me for custom wiring that included full cavity shielding, custom switch wiring for 3-pickups to offer the various tones he wanted (similar to “Nashville” pickup switching), and a treble-bleed circuit.

The body then went to our partner, Whammy Bar Guitar shop for a custom setup and a cool headstock carve.

After Kelly and the guitar settle in some, it’ll come back to me to dial in the tone.
