TONY GILKYSON'S PORTILLO PINK CUSTOM

If you ask me who my favorite guitar player is, I'll tell you: it's Tony Gilkyson. I made him a pink guitar in 2007 and, now, here's another one. Pinker and prouder than previous. 

1-pc sugar pine body, maple / rosewood veneer fretboard, some recycled parts (1953 Telecaster bridge pickup) and some new parts (Lollar neck mini humbucker inside an old cover from Tony's stash). Push-push tone pot phase switching, 4-way pickup switching with series, unflinching pink to match a sample mixed by Tony's friend, Rose Portillo.
