The Paduak Spectrum. You'll love this.

What if a Paduak and Spectrum had a baby?

This is from 1980 when Masumoku was getting creative. Check this out...

CLICKETH THOU HERE and scroll down. Very, very cool. I want one. Cool

It's an Electra Phoenix (which became the Spectrum).

That cap looks a lot better on the Spectrum/Phoenix body than the Concord methinks. Not bad at all. Not sure about the maple fretboard, but dunno what I'd use instead. Thinking

Nice one Chad.
Totally original me thinks.

Notice the F spaced bridge with Jap spaced pups!

A great string spacing. Had a Paduak With the same bridge.
Played easy. Wish I still had it...Sad
Not a bad bridge Barry! Hooked up at the base plate!

Wow, it's lovely, but it aint no Paduak
the old Concord shape suits the 2 tone wood much better IMO
Theres a Paduak1 on ebay right now for 175 start bid, was very tempted, maybe not at that price for a version 1, but the seller has not responded at all...so ho hum.
