    We specified these very limited run Love Rock Customs to as close as we could for a 1954 to 1956 Custom. All mahogany body, mahogany neck, gold hardware, block inlays and two P90 pickups. The original 50's guitars had a P90 bridge pickup and the alnico staple pickup in the neck position which have very powerful magnets and can pull the strings unless the pickup is wound right down into the body. We went with two P90's. These are beautiful guitars and play extremely well and have a clear, woody tone with very good sustain. We had six, we now have three left in stock. Comes with Hardcase
