12015- The first Abbey Road

Based on the “fabled” 330 (pictured), the Abbey Road is an almost-faithful reconstruction but with some minor changes, notably a 25″ scale length, instead of 24 3/4″, the neck/body join is at the 19th fret rather than the 16th of the original and totally hollow construction with a sound post directly under the bridge.

The Abbey Road is of pressed laminate construction based on the Gibson 330/ Epiphone Casino profile and dimensions and uses locally sourced luan ply. The neck is mahogany and the fretboard is macassar ebony.

The body has three ply white/black/white binding but no binding to the neck, and a sunburst finish at the request of the purchaser.

The first Abbey Road is fitted with Tonerider Rebel 90 P90 pickups and has no scratch plate.
