Wirehead; the Semuta; the mind-lube of the ubiquitous tasp. Drawing on the sum total of the late 20th Century's golden age of music; neither aping the past or recycling the already reprocessed fifth generation lossy culture of the early 21st Century. A bold claim, surely and one that will only gain weight through the course of time's ticking.

Bartolini Pickups PBF-57 & PBF-77D.
This guiter has been modified by luthier Ian Barwell to remove the original Ayers Rocker tremolo, with new wood eliminating the trem cavities, a tune-o-matic bridge fitted and a full re-spray and laquer. Mirror finish acheived using self adhesive mirrored film for glazing. Work done in 2000.
