Collector's Choice #1: Melvyn Franks Butterscotch VOS version
The original features a highly figured top and a beautiful, faded “unburst” finish, and the wiring and orientation of the neck pickup has been reversed to create a unique “out of phase” middle position tone. The Collector's Choice #1 guitars will be available in two options: Gary Moore Butterscotch Aged and Melvyn Franks Butterscotch VOS. Both versions feature period-correct details: rounded ’59 neck profile, Deep-Amber “Unburst” finish, “reverse-phase” BurstBucker humbuckers, bumble bee tone capacitors, nickel-plated Sperzel tuners, deep-set long neck tenon, correct body top binding in the cutaway, missing silver inserts on the top two “Top Hat” control knobs, and 17-degree back-angled headstock. The Aged version will be limited to 150, carry a Certificate of Authenticity signed by Gary Moore, and retail at $12,468. The VOS version will be limited to 300 and retail at $9,174.
