Indie #20 - 'Custom Shop L shape'

This is another example of Indies 2008 'Custom Shop' output, this time the 'L shape' which is their Les Paul style.

There were only 16 made to the following spec...

Body: Solid Mahogany
Body Top: Solid Maple with Tiger Maple Cap Body
Binding: Natural Wood
Neck: Solid Mahogany, Heeless Cutaway, Smooth Satin Wood Finish
Neck Binding: Natural
Neck Construction: Set neck, Heeless cutaway, Smooth Satin Wood Finish
Fingerboard: A-grade ebony
Fingerboard: Inlay Tree of Life Abalone
Headstock: Binding Natural
Machine Heads: Grover tuner
Top Nut: Graphite
Bridge: Deluxe Tune-O-Matic
Hardware: Deluxe Nickel Chrome
Pickups: DV8 Humbuckers - High Output Indie Alnico Electrics 2 volume, 2 tone, 3-way toggle switch, Mini Switches for Active/Passive and Coil Tap
Truss Rod: 2-way dual action
Scale Length/Frets: 628mm(24.7")/22 frets
Finish: Satin Blue Burst Custom

It's essentially similar to the rest of the Indie output but with small tweaks, active pre-amp and nice detailing.

It's almost eleven pounds of shoulder destroying mahogany monster in a very nice satin finish. I got it for a very good price but sadly it's missing the original Indie case. I'll see if I can find one or perhaps steal the one from my Designer Union Jack.

Now if I can pick up one of the 2008 'Custom shop' IPRs I'll have full the set. :-)
