Lefty PGM301 - the first lefty to roll out of the guitar workshop

eh up lefties and righties alike !
well I guess if youre a lefty and want a PGM301 your pretty stuffed cos they dont make one !
well, ive got quite a bit of lefty work on at the moment and this is the first to be near complete...
just needs holes for the machine heads.
the Customer - a GIANT of a man and a top bloke to boot is collecting tomorrow and will do the paint himself... good luck with the f-holes Dom

the pics
usual PGM stuff, 1 piece maple and walnut laminate neck with baswood body, custom electrical cavity because you can get a pukka left cavity cover...









honestly every time I look at it it makes my brain swim

That looks great!

Jaden, are you going to bring your custom with the single coils to Manchester? I think Paul will really like it

140 for the body and 220 for the neck - the flame was a bonus on this one..

Perhaps a stupid question, but how is it a 1 piece neck, if it's a laminate construction? Surely that makes it several pieces of wood (I think 5?) or does this mean no scarfing behind the headstock?

I was wondering who would ask me that
yes, its a 5 piece neck with no scarf joint... just like the current PGM.
its a lot more wasteful in materials to make but looks cool !

not at all a stupid question...
you can imagine that sort of statement coming from a guitar salesman...

"yes sir, its a one piece neck in 5 pieces...." - what the !!"$+*/* ?

Re: Lefty PGM301 - the first lefty to roll out of the guitar workshop

Hey Jaden
It's looking awesome geeza !!!!
Can't wait to see it. I'm scared ****less of playing the lick of Doom though !
The combo of maple to the back of the neck is amazing. And that F-hole cavity is gonna be SO sick !!
Just in time to paint before the PG date at Astoria to get it signed and blessed by the man before clear coat ... ha ha ha

Thanks so much Jaden. Hope this is the 1st lefty of many, for me and for others !

Dom
