The spec. is fairly interesting.
- Mahogany body with maple cap
- Mahogany set neck with maple fretboard
- Satin chrome hardware including Grover machine heads
- Twin Indie custom humbuckers with matching satin chrome covers
You don't see many things with a maple fretboard on a mahogany neck and this makes for quite an unusual looking guitar. There is a very strong contrast between the dark mahogany back and maple top/fretboard.
The single cutaway Indie 'Shape' is similar to the set neck, carved top, twin humbucker 'Special Edition' Telecasters that Fender put out. Although by fitting a tune-o-matic bridge and tail this essentially a Les Paul in a Telecaster-esque shape but because it's fairly thin is much lighter.
Being a slightly older Indie this has a 4/2 headstock arrangement, while my first has 3/3. I slightly prefer the 4/2 layout as I reckon they fit with Indies asymmetric headstock shape better. When I see a 3/3 layout of machine heads I always think the headstock should be symmetrical.
Sound wise it was my first fixed bridge twin humbucker guitar in a long time so I was impressed with the sustain and depth. I did have an old Columbus Les Paul as my first guitar but that was so long ago I'd forgotten almost everything about it.
Having picked this up I found that hard cases made to exactly fit 'Shape' Indies were affordable and bought a couple.
