CUSTOM

Tele style Prostate charity commission

When professional darts player and three times BDO World Champion and  three World Masters Champion Martin “Wolfie” Adams was cleared of prostate cancer in late 2016, he immediately started to look for a way to raise awareness (and some much needed cash) for Prostate Cancer UK.

A mutual friend of both Martin and the Grainger brothers pulled things together and the result was a commission for this beauty. The “Wolfie” Telecaster. A totally custom guitar with a host of unique features, which Martin auctioned in 2017 raising in excess of £2,000 for Prostate Cancer UK.  

Check out the guitar’s specs…

• 25.5″ Scale • 22 fret traditional bolt on neck • nickel silver jumbo frets • soft C shaped neck

• Wilkinson hardware • Graphite compound nut • 1 x volume, 1 x tone, 3 way blade switch

• Two piece book matched flamed ash body • One piece flamed maple neck with rosewood fingerboard

• Inlaid offset dots and Grainger “G” at 12th Fret • Ironstone pickups in classic Tele layout

• Large Wolfie ebony Inlay on rear of guitar which is signed by darts legend Martin “Wolfie” Adams • “Wolfie” signature dart mounted in guitar body.

ONE PIECE Flame top SUPER STRAT

Grainger guitars were approached by gigging musician, Jerry Bennett, during the summer of 2017, to build an electric guitar for him that would replace his main, off the shelf instrument and provide the tone and versatility he had long sought after. 

Jerry had a pretty firm idea in his mind of the kind of instrument he wanted and after a period of zoning in on his exact requirements, the brothers set about creating a guitar that Jerry would be proud to own and play.

Loosely based on a Strat style, read on to see just what the Grainger boys delivered… 

• 24.75″ scale • 24 fret bolt on neck with brass threaded inserts • Stainless steel jumbo frets • Soft C shaped neck

• Grainger hardtail bridge • Hipshot closed gear tuners • Graphtech Black Tusq® Nut • 1 x volume, 1 x tone, 5 way blade switch plus humbucker coil-split on 2nd switch position • Bare Knuckle pickups

• Chambered two piece book matched sapele body with two piece book matched flamed maple drop top

• One piece bubinga neck with bubinga over maple veneer fretboard and classic dot inlays

• High gloss finish to body and natural oil neck finish

STRAT STYLE WITH Bob Dylan INLAY

The family of this guitar’s owner came to Grainger with an idea to combine his love of both guitars and a lifelong idol – Bob Dylan. After settling on a straight Strat style design, the next challenge was to turn it into something unique and bespoke to the recipient.

The resulting guitar uses the marriage of several different techniques and materials that incorporate a group of ideas into a single “one of a kind” instrument, easily and instantly recognisable and yet totally individual to the owner. So, come the day of the lucky recipient’s surprise 60th birthday gift unveiling, was he happy?? We’ll give you three guesses 😉

• 25.5″ Scale • 22 fret traditional bolt on neck • nickel silver jumbo frets • soft C shaped neck

• Wilkinson hardware • Graphite compound nut • 1 x volume, 2 x tone, 5 way blade switch

• Two piece ash body • Two piece bookmatched quilted maple top • One piece birdseye maple neck with rosewood fingerboard

• Inlaid offset dots and customer initials at 12th Fret • Ironstone pickups in classic Strat layout

• High Gloss finish to body with natural oil neck finish
