OK, you asked for it.Take, for example,Do you have a picture of that? i cant see anything on the web at a brief
the shape of the scratchplate with a mix of straight edges and curves
and the way the bridge and contol plate *just* cut into the straight
back edge. The work of a real designer - I don't know who, but Leo's
original was much cruder in concept, artistically.
ok, yes, I agree, the guy that came in and said 'Great work Leo, tell
you what, lets move *this* to *here* and...' did a very good job!
The basic outline survived then, and the volume/tone knob.
OK, this sort of links up with another thread on here - the relic one.
You could - maybe still can - actually buy a reproduction of this
guitar, with matching amp.
The body - IIRC - was made of pine.
I have some pictures of this guitar/amp outfit but I can't find them.
I'm sure someone can provide a URL.
