Theres a ton of threads around here about Alligator builds, and this might have been better in Guitar Building and Mods..... but since you opened the door.......
Just finished this one for myself
I wanted to do "virgin" Alligator, as it was when Nash first gave it to Jerry. It didnt stay this way for long but for a "Guitar Player" interview back in '71 you can see Jerry on the cover with an untouched Alligator. I used Mark Jenny for the body. Its a 1-piece ash and is fantastic. I had him do a natural nitro finish. He is known for doing relic work but this one has no wear applied to it. Im gonna take care of that
The neck is Allparts. Its been re-shaped by a very skilled friend of mine to resemble an old '57 and boy did he nail it. Pickups are Fender 57/62 and the only brass I used was a full brass trem block from GFS. This thing is under 7.5 lbs and man does it sing!! This one's a keeper
