AV Bigsby

About the project

This guitar was made for my friend Andrey Vashkevich.

We drew the sketches of the shape together, adjusting the ergonomics closer to Fender Stratocaster, as this model had the most comfortable feel for him. The general concept assumed a certain amount of vintage both in sound and in appearance. After testing, we concluded that Lace HEMI pickups met these requirements the most – and so we installed them on the guitar. We painted the top in a warm peach tone, installed Bigsby, and got a dream guitar called AV.
