Bob Briand's Bobcaster
Briand pieced together the Bobcaster over the course of 20 years. It currently features a rock maple neck with ebony fingerboard, graphite nut, jumbo frets, Schecter stacked humbucker (neck) and "an ancient lap steel pickup" at the bridge. "The tone circuit is top secret (a.k.a I don't even sort of remember how I did it) but this is one seriously high-powered and "chunky" Telecaster...Ugly? Sure, that's the point. After having a guitar stolen at one point in life, this one never even gets looked at. Sings like a siren and looks like a bar skank...perfect!"
