Hi there,

Jack butler copy, but has no serial numbers or branding anywhere, would it be a custom build from other parts? Cant find anything on google about it.

I know charvel did a version but more expensive than this.

Looks it good condition.....

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

think it's just the angle of the pix. looks like a parts caster to me. the Floyd appears to be a late 80s early 90s one. pickups aren't F-Spaced but that isn't a real big deal. whoever strung up the guitar is a moron. body may have been routed to accept the Floyd.

Those are Wilkinson pickups...darn good if legit.

It is almost certainly a guitar built from parts; rather than manufactured by a company. "Jack Butler" is the name of the character played by guitarist Steve Vai in the film Crossroads; based on the old blues legend of Robert Johnson having sold his soul to the devil in exchange for his supernatural guitar talent. Aside from the fact that the guitar is metallic green (probably a nod to Steve Vai, as he was always partial to neon green guitars), it is set up very much like the red one he used in the film; albeit with a different body style and headstock.

Thanks guys, really appreciate it. Its £150 quid, ill try it out and see what i think.

The only thing that looks off is the bridge pickup looks awfully far away from the bridge itself. I'd be concerned that the bridge pickup is too muddy.

you might be right about the 80s thing, but i don't think it's the angle of the pic- the angle of the end of the baseplate is angled (you can see it on the last pic where the angle of the pic is from straight in front), whereas on OFRs and FRT-x00s it's straight.

also the saddles are bevelled, i thought that was only on newer ones?

I dunno. kinda looks like the routing was done a little sloppy. not sure about the Floyd I mean it looks like the ones I had back in the 80s but it's been a while so not sure. floyd could be newer replacement or just new and body was routed for it. saddles seem to be set to try to compensate for no F spacing

yeah. i'm not sure It doesn't look like the newer ones, that's for sure. maybe a ping one or something like that? dunno.
