Cliff St. Croix's Ken Smith BT Custom
This one-off custom guitar was built in 1986 in St. Croix's neighbor Ken Smith's living room workshop. It features a flame maple body with a crotch walnut top, three-piece maple neck-through construction, ebony fretboard, and gold plated parts. The guitar is outfitted with Smith's active circuit board, which includes volume control, a pickup pan pot ( allows blending of PU for unlimited sounds ) as opposed to a switch, preamp switch (+ 20 db), phase switch, two coil tap switches, and hi and low pass band filter controls.
