1- Hendrick's Generator, my personal Holy Grail guitar. Found a NOS body (made in Kalamazoo, MI by Heritage) and went from there. Less than 100 were made. Performance neck, Hipshot hardtail bridge, Seymour Duncan Vintage Tele at neck and a Gibson "57" humbucker at bridge.
Update; Finally tracked the designer down. I received a couple of emails from Kurt Hendrick after the recent article on him in Vintage Guitar Magazine about the guitar.
