We used lots of time to examine the details of the genuine Guitar Bones and later-on replicas, to replicate the particular electric guitar as best as we can. We selected alder in wood selection, just the same as the authentic guitar, but lately we got requirements from buyers who desire mahogany, therefore we supply 2 selections.

The only difference between ours and the unique guitar is that we cannot obtain Johns teeth and hair to mount on the guitar.
