neck joins body
Where the neck joins the body
there is a leather shoelace which
was Derek’s favourite method for
attaching a strap, making it
unnecessary to bore a hole into
the guitar for a permanent fixing.
plectrum wear
There is some plectrum wear to the
guitar’s table between the pick ups.
dental acrylic plectra
Derek made his own heavy plectra
from dental acrylic and used medium
gauge Jazz strings with a wound 3rd.
