ElectronicsThese come with CTS 250K ohm potentiometers and very high quality capacitors. We also use the best Switchcraft input jacks. We use vintage style, fabric covered wire throughout.
PickguardsLike all our other models, we make these pickguards right here. They are made to our own exacting tolerances so the fit is perfect. We then hand age them for a realistic vintage look. These are available in all the usual colors.
We select the best possible lumber for all our necks. We use straight grain, quartersawn, eastern hard-rock, Maple. We then hand-shape them so they have that special, organic feel we're known for.
We even mold our own dots so custom colors can be ordered too!
FretsWe use .104 x .047" nickel-silver frets. We polish them to a mirror finish and hand finish all the ends.
BodyBalboas come with especially selected and dried, light Alder bodies.
TunersWe use Gotoh ultra-light weight, reverse wind tuners on these. The expensive ones....
