The Crews LED-1959 series is Japanese craftsmanship at its absolute finest. These guitars are made in very small batches using the finest materials and attention to detail. This is a Custom Shop instrument that's as good as any Single Cut I've ever owned. You may ask why I would let this one go, and it's simply because I have 2 other LED model. It has been very difficult deciding which one to sell, they are all very similar.
This particular guitar has a Honduras mahogany body and neck with a solid flame maple top and Brazilian rosewood fretboard. The finish is Honey Burst and there is some light aging that was applied by the builder that includes some very light weather checking and play wear that I would characterize as "under the bed" wear, a guitar that has been mainly stored in its case and only played sparingly over the years.
The pickups that originally came with the guitar we K&T Clicks, but a previous owner replaced them with K&T Frictions. K&T is a boutique pickup winder in Japan that was founded by Jun Takano, the man who developed and would the famed Maxon DryZ pickups of the early 80s. K&T pickups are my favorite for that "tele on steroids" PAF tone, I have yet to come across a pickup that does it as well. The Frictions are in the PAF realm, but on the hotter side with resistance of each measuring right at 9.1. Still, they are very clear.
The neck is a nice '59 C style that I find very comfortable. And with the light aging, the fingerboard has been nicely rolled. The neck measurements are:
Width - 1.71" at the nut, 2.07" at the 12th fret
Depth - 0.92" at the 1st fret, 0.98" at the 12th fret
The guitar weighs 8.7 pounds and will come in a Crews hardshell case.
