LD: This is made of two slabs of aluminum and it has a chambered body to cut down on the weight - it's a prototype that Fender custom builder J.Black, sent to EC. ..see what he thought. Fender really value EC's opinion on certain instruments I thought it might be quite nice for slide. We tried it in the studio once...It's a lovely, unusual piece. It comes with the custom shop certificate, stating it's a prototype..
CW: Is it heavy?
LD: Not really, it's chambered all through the body which helps with the resonance of the guitar, and makes it lighter weight. It sounded very nice [when] we tried it in the studio..
