My 2010 Red Specials
|The first RS (below) is designed to look most like the original. This was created back in 2005. The second one I intend to create will be constructed differently. The third will have some different materials and using a commercial rollerbridge. The fourth will be made from a solid piece of mahogany (for the body) and use a commercial floating trem. The fifth will be made from different materials again. Mostly all other the functionality and specification will remain the same on all guitars.||

As you can see from above I have already named them. For those of you that are unfamiliar with the names, they are characters from a very successful British comedy called Only Fools and Horses.
