Skin Strat Stats & Effects

Remember Glen's naked Strat from a couple posts ago? ( click for earlier post) We'll here are some interesting specs from Glen himself:

SKIN STRAT
Project: Glen
Crafted by Jacaranda (Milan - Italy)
Customized by Riccardo Fornasero (Turin - Italy)
Body: burst ash
Neck: maple covered with pekari skin*
Fretboard: indian rosewood
Machine heads: Sperzel
Bridge: ABM (Germany), hard tail
Pickups: Jason Lollar Special, covered with pekari skin
Pickguard: natural leather

*"Pekari" is a spelling variation referring to a type of wild pig.

Now I completely understand the name "Skin-Strat"! Do you get that even the pick-up covers and presumably, the back of the neck, are pig skin? So, there's a lot more going on here than simply a natural wood body finish.














This is the kind of stuff we look for at Stratoblogster.
