He's a lefty, so that half price deal worked great for him. I just never got around to getting one.....I think the endorsement has ran out now, but not sure....Halo guitars are nice, wish I had gotten one when I had the chance...they would probably re-new the endorsement if we wanted too....

Now THAT is a guitar!

Got a couple questions about it....

Is it a solid body, or a hollow/chambered body? Is it the bridge or bridge pickup that's slightly staggered? Is the bridge attached to a block of rosewood? What's the knob on the horn for, or is it even a knob at all?

its a chambered body making it 1/2 the weight of a lp custom.
the bridge is slightly angled to get the correct intonation within the bridge adjustment, the bass for the bridge is rosewood.

i have wired it for 2 tone cone controls, and the master volume which is in the forward position ,std. on all gretschs.

Good stuff! I figured it was the bridge that was staggered, but the picture was making it hard to tell for some reason.

Do you feel that the rosewood bass has much of an effect on the tone or sustain?

Got any recordings of it that you could post? I bet it's got a lot of character to it's tone.

Again, very cool guitar! Thanks for posting!

my recordings are all on reel to reel and i have no way to get them to digital.
tone variations from a very soft bass tone to one that will put a tele to shame.
the action is also very good 1/64 bottem to top, and NO fret buzz.
i have not had to tweek any adjustment on this axe in over 15 years , including moving from ontario where the average humidity is 40% to vancouver bc , where the average humidity is 80%.
i am in love with this machine.
jimmy

1/64" action height is very impressive, and with no fret buzz it's even more impressive! Is the 1/64" with the strings open and measured at any position, or is it the measurement at the 5th fret when fretting the string at the 1st and 12th frets (which would be for the neck relief measurement rather than for the action)? Sorry if I sound in disbelief, it's just because I've never seen a guitar with action that low.

The action on my PRS SE Singlecut, on the low E string, is 1/32" at the 1st fret, 1/16" at the 5th fret, and 5/64" at the 12th fret.

I'm a pretty heavy handed rhythm player, so it doesn't work for me to have super low action. I end up getting way too much fret buzz.
