RSL

Red Special Mark II

This was actually technically my second RS guitar but this was built for a friend of mine, Jon Underhill. In this build, I used all of Jon's plans which he had made on CAD by tracing round various RS guitars.

It was quite a quick build as I had all the parts and wood. It took around three months. It would have taken longer but I had a deadline - RS meet up.

The guitar worked quite well at the meet up and Jon used it at a few gigs. The guitar was sold on in 2007, it is now under new ownership in the Netherlands (Knoxville).
