I wanted to build a 25.5 inch scale Mosrite inspired slab body guitar with a super heavy relic paint job...so I did. It is a ONE PIECE poplar body with a maple neck. This guitar has quality Allparts tuners, bridge, and output socket as well as a CTS pot and Switchcraft jack. I'm not sure of the manufacturer of the pickup but it is potted, no microphonics, and comes in at about 10k. The guitar is a little on the heavier side at about 8lbs but when you pick it up, you just want to play the hell out of it.
