Body Type: Dreadnought
Up for sale, an Irvine Bastardcaster; the guitar that's encapsulated by its name, yet hard to put into words.  Like the redheaded step child of a Telecaster, dreadnought acoustic and a monster truck rally, the Bastardcaster delights in its unconventional looks and sounds.  Since the serial number is "004", we know there are other Bastardly guitar children out there, but it's safe to say you'll be the only one on your block with one of these.  With an unlabeled Tele neck pickup, a vintage Japanese humbucker in the bridge, and a chrome mud flap girl for *ahem*...inspiration (or shall we say extra resonance and sustain?), the Bastardcaster sings a jangly, raucous song of love and loss.

Strung with phosphor bronze strings and resurrected from the shell of a dreadnought with a headstock shape resembling a Martin, the origins of the Bastardcaster are shrouded in mystery.  The presumably spruce top and headstock veneer are finished over with fire engine red paint, and the soundhole and extra routing are concealed by the Telecaster-esque pickguard.  The neck has a medium C profile, the frets are in good shape and the headstock sports a set of reissue Kluson tuning machines that work well.

The pickups are wired to a pair of master Volume and Tone knobs, and the knobs themselves must have come from an old '50s radio, with large transparent plastic dials and chrome inserts.  The electronics work decently well as long as you occasionally give one of the switches (the guitar also boasts an on/off kill switch for the electronics) an extra jiggle, and the balance between the two pickups is good.

It's unique, it's one of very few made and it's as much a conversation piece as a classic mashup of Americana with six strings for strumming your favorite chords.
