A version of this guitar was reviewed by Dave Burrluck for Guitarist Magazine May 2020 and scored an incredible 9/10. Dave said:
"Along with the subtle modernisations this Oz is quite possibly in the top five best guitars of this type – vintage or contemporary – that this writer has ever had his hands on. It’s guitar-making at its finest level."
Main images are of a previously built guitar and reviewed in Guitarist magazine - scoring 9/10 and 9.5/10 on Music Radar. The first picture is of the guitar in build. Note this one is in gorgeous HoneyBurst.
SOLD - The buyer said this:
"Pat kindly got out #30417 to me, it arrived this morning. I took some shots as I presume neither Pat or yourself had a chance to. So visually it’s breathtaking, wonderfully presented, it all adds up. It sounds incredible too, the bridge is just hot enough without being obnoxious, the humbucker is just wonderful and strangely makes sense once you play it, the split makes it a Tele+. My thing is really to tell you that I’ve never had a connection to any instrument so quickly and so profoundly. There’s no improving this, I believe it’s as good as anything could ever be, well this is for me anyway."
Well, this is one special guitar. A beautiful Butterscotch T style guitar, but with one special addition that you won't have seen anywhere else - unless of course you saw the Rolling Stones on Tour in 2014. During that tour Keef had installed a Cream T ""Bangers & Mash" pickup in th neck position. This pickup was a collaboration between Keith, Billy Gibbons and legendary pickup maker Thomas Nilsen.
