The overall body shape is somewhat reminiscent of the late '70's Martin solid body guitars:

But the more I look at the Till it seems like he started with a basic tele thin line body and modified the shape, mostly on the bass side. Looks like a very nicely made guitar.


It was a real pain finding a case that would fit it - either the upper bout or headstock conspired to defeat every case I tried until last week. I found a pretty nice Road Runner that fits perfectly. :) Once the wiring issues are solved I'll be good to go!

Mine is #11 and Joe has offered me a discount on a new one if I send this one back to him - not likely to happen. I just replaced the no-name bridge pickup with a potted MMK45 and replaced the standard volume pot with a push pull to split the coil on the MMK. The neck pickup is an Ibanez Super 58. This is one of my favorite axes now. :D
