Electrical Guitar Company (EGC) Custom Model Solid Body Electric Guitar (2015), made in Pensacola, Florida, dark mahogany lacquer finish, mahogany body, aluminum neck and centerpiece, gig bag case.

This guitar is a one-of-a-kind creation from the Electrical Guitar Company (EGC) of Pensacola, Florida, current makers of Travis Bean instruments as well as their own designs. This instrument is not a stock model, but a unique custom order built in 2015 by Kevin Burkett. The serial number is 1133. It is built with a very thin aluminum neck with 22 frets, a 25.1" scale, and a 12" radius to the polished, natural aluminum fretboard. The headstock is a modified Travis Bean style with an open center fitted with Gotoh Rotomatic style tuners.

The body is solid mahogany and modeled after a '50s Les Paul Special, fitted with two EGC P-90-style pickups with non-adjustable poles. The controls are standard to the Les Paul model with a single selector switch on the upper bout and two volume and two tone controls, outfitted with Gibson 1950s-style speed knobs. The instrument is also fitted with a horseshoe-style Bigsby-licensed vibrato and Schaller roller bridge.

The EGC company is a limited production operation with a strong cult following, and currently has a notoriously long wait-time even for production models. This unique custom instrument is in near-mint, unmodified condition and is a fabulous and unique example of their finest work.
Overall length is 41 in. (104.1 cm.), 13 3/8 in. (34 cm.) wide at lower bout, and 1 5/8 in. (4.1 cm.) in depth, measured at side of rim. Scale length is 25 in. (635 mm.). Width of nut is 1 11/16 in. (43 mm.).

This guitar shows only very light signs of play, with some slight scuffing to the pickguard, and the neck shows fingerprints immediately! A super clean and unique example of this sought-after modern maker's wares. Near Mint Condition.
