Duane Denison's New Guitar [UPDATED]

(I added a new photo which has the fretboard inlays.)

This is the all-aluminum guitar Kevin Burkett at Electrical Guitar Company is building for Duane.  It has a semi-hollow body, which Duane likes for the added resonance, and looks like a cross between a Gibson ES-335 and the Travis Beans he played in the early days of the Jesus Lizard.  The pickups are Gibson Burstbuckers, modelled after the old Gibson PAFs,  and the tremolo bar is a Bigsby.  The neck pitch and action are modeled on Gibson-style setup.

No trees were harmed in the manufacture of this guitar.  Me like.

    Preciosa guitarra! alguna posibilidad de venir a tocar a Chile. Shellac toco el año pasado acá.

  6. Lobsterdeth says:

    Three dots in the 12th fret? Duane likes Brian May that much?

  7. David Wm. Sims says:

    Excitable Boy: There is no wood (heh) in that guitar.

  8. Parker says:

    I heard it’s made entirely of hemp . . . sprayed with robot tears.

  9. David says:

    Dear Mark,

    No one knows what kind of pickups Duane had in his Travis Beans.

    I was there.

    As a child, do you care for eggplant?

    dear david, i think you deserve a bass as nice as that guitar. i’m sure the memphis gets the job done just the same as one of duane’s hamers did, but you really do deserve to have a bass as awesome as that egc.

    ahh it was splendid seeing you gents last night in vancouver. always a pleasure.
    as a fellow ECG owner i must say that beast sounded splendid last night.
    i believe kevin told me that the body was aluminum as well on this one. mine is a 500 series style with a wood body and beam neck.

    again.. amazing show last night.

    Duane had the stock Travis Bean pickups in his green TB.
