  • Hot or Not? April 1st


    First Act USA Custom Shop Delia
    "Here's a knockout Delia Semi-hollow from the First Act Custom Shop in Massachusetts, USA. Click Here for a good link about the company, and luthiers, and who they've built guitars for - this might surprise you. I got it on ebay, and was told it was new, but a 2nd due to finish cracks/checking (see last few pics - most on back of headstock, one on side of neck, and a few running across the face). Must have happened during finishing or storage or ?

    Other than that, it's a superb instrument and sounds amazing. Has a 1-11/16th nut with a fat '59 type neck carve - feels like a good 'ol Paul or Jr. Has real USA Bigsby B12 with Chet arm, Duncan Phat Cat pickups, Grover tuners, Schaller roller bridge, maple top over chambered mahogany. I think frets are stainless - can't remember for sure."

    And I actually own two(!) Delias.  I don't like the sunburst, gold hardware, or [again, ad nauseum] the Bigsby ...

      Not. I've never cared for that particular style of double cutaway.

    Hot.  I'd rock it.

        This is funny. On Paper, if you described and named the specs, I'd be drooling uncontrollably, Then looking at it, it is as if everything that's right about it has been done just a tad wrong. Yet it is beautifully made. I say.....

        Not.  Kind of reminds me of some of the stuff coming out of Japan during the '60s.

          Yep, the shape doesn't appeal to me either. I like everything else. Not

        I never liked the "low shoulders" on that model and the stinger on the back of the neadstock mskes it look like it's hiding a hesdstock repair. The First Act logo is hideous too.
