The retro rocker opens up about retrofitting reissues, returning to the JTM45s, and finding the piece of gear that changed his life.

This custom creation was handbuilt by Robert Mondell out of New Jersey and Nick has coined this Mosrite-esque model “Hanzo,” aka “the sword of tone” after the swordsmith (Hattori Hanzō) in the Kill Bill saga. This wave-riding surfer is all mahogany and comes to life with the Tyson Tone Dogear P90 57 Wraptail Vintage Wind pickups. This one likes to live in a tuned-down world and is generally set up in D. 

Special thanks to Derek Brad for additional video footage.
