The body is 95% quarter-sawn white oak from the barrels, with a beam under the top that holds two magnetic pickups, and there is also an acoustic pickup mounted in the wooden bridge. The guitar has a hard-rock maple bolt-on neck with a 27.5"-scale ebony fretboard, and the Volume and Tone controls are made from Bushmills bottle caps.
