Electric Semi-Hollow Single cutaway guitar
Ash body and neck
One or two single-coil pickups
The Mark III Spanish was a small electric guitar, the body of which had several hollow chambers. The instrument also had one or two single-coil pickups and a special tailpiece with a large cut-out ‘M’. The entire top was covered with a tortoise shell formica pickguard, and there were two plastic knobs for volume and tone.
The prototype designs had a screwed neck, but in the instrument that eventually went into production, the neck was glued and a piece of wood was applied to the neck as reinforcement under the guitar pickup.
