This is an early Tyler Psychedelic Vomit #5, signed by Mike Landau. (eBay Item #: 320488572980)
As the seller points out, the early Psychedelic Vomit's had a 'cloud-like' vibe to the color swirls in the finish. And this one looks very similar, finish-wise, to Psychedelic Vomit #1 which I had the chance to check out when I visited Jim Tyler's shop in 2000. The more recent PV's have swirl patterns with more defined edges.
The electronics are pretty straightforward -- two Seymour Duncan Classic Stack pickups in the front and middle positions and a Seymour Duncan Hot Rails at the bridge with a standard 5-way selector switch. On later editions, Jim Tyler went with custom-wound Seymour Duncan Little '59 stacked single-coil-sized humbuckers in the bridge position.
We'll probably not see another one of these early Tyler guitars for a very long time!

Yeah, he wants to order a trans blue maple top.ReplyDelete
The listing description is kinda weird. He's not very sales oriented.
