Robert Calsetta's Black Mesa Guitars Signature Custom
Calsetta's Black Mesa is his first ever custom guitar, and he says, "I'm in love!" It features a one-piece chambered swamp ash body, bookmatched burl maple top with matched headstock and trussrod cover, 24-fret 5-piece curly maple and jatoba neck, birdseye maple fingerboard, and TremKing trem system and locking tuners. The guitar has custom Sheptone Tele pickups with Volume, 3-way blend, blend on/off, and tone controls. He adds that the guitar only weighs 6 pounds, 10 ounces.
