Very nice.

What is the reasoning why the pickups are so close together?

This is another one of Weir's Blackknifes. Rich was going through the mountain of Weir's guitars at the warehouse looking for the Cocobolo one from 87. We're specing it out for the next build. ;) He stumbled across this one.

I'm having this one made. The production Weir Signatures are quite different

That is my favorite Mody! (87) Im thinking it was a neck thru even though there is a wood cap on the top! The one in the picture with Hoeg seems to be the "BMW" guitar? I don't think he ever played it with the GD. At least I cant find a pic or reference to it.

Bobby's Blackknifes never had the Strat body radius. His are more oval shaped.

the 95 silver/grey one is pretty great as well!
Did the Trussart have a Mody neck?
