Hästen is a hold over from phase-one, when I was building Mustang style guitars for commissions. This build got delayed, so will now be a phase-two build, using a custom 3D-printed bridge and other parts that are hallmarks of the phase-two builds. This guitar’s design is also a nod to the blackguard telecaster design, the first mass-produced solid body electric guitar.
