Bud's CowboyCaster

Bud's wife wanted to surprise him with something special for Christmas.  She contacted me after seeing Mike's Soonercaster and figured OSU needed to represent as well.  She told me Bud was a big OSU fan as well as Corvettes, so I came up with a design that incorporated both of his favorite things.

Besides the OSU orange paint, I also inlaid the OSU logo into the fretboard with paduak, an exotic wood that has a naturally orange color.  To bring in the Corvette details, the paint scheme was inspired by C1 Corvettes from the '50s.  I also used authentic 1956 Corvette radio knobs for tone and volume and an authentic 1956 Corvette door lock knob for the pickup selector switch.

Here are the specs:

  • 25.5" scale
  • Alder body
  • Flamed maple neck with striped ebony fretboard
  • Hand-wound PAF humbucker pickups
  • Gotoh tuners
  • Corian nut
  • CTS pots
  • Switchcraft switch and jack
  • Wilkinson bridge with compensated brass saddles
