Tort on green is… interesting. It feels so off it must be on purpose. I like the dark green and black variants. I suppose a black pickguard and back plate are easy to procure. The dark green I took from the border of the picture and it could be difficult to match but worth trying. Not sure someone would sell such a pickguard, though.
The Revelation site no longer shows such a model and the pick-ups look special.
It's hereLeoThunder . I really like the pickups and they both split. There are also some interesting tones on the selector switch on the top horn. They do tend to reduce the volume somewhat so are best used with the full humbucker mode or with the split mode at a decent volume. I find it can cover a lot of ground at a gig where you need to match your sound to the surroundings.
Revelation do some really niche guitars. Lots for lefties, 12 string electrics and 6 string basses, some quarter tone thing. Really fun browsing through their offerings. This one on ebay has a two point Wilkinson trem. I don't know if that is a new thing for Revelation or if it's a retrofit. Sadly the visible wood grain seems a little bland. Like basswood. Hardly worth going translucent if the underlying prize is nothing to shout about.
There are quite a few marbled green pickguard sheets out there but choosing them from an image online is risky.
Quarter tones? I never knew what for. I know some "modern" music no one cares for was written with quarter tones, I think I remember some string quartet from the 70s. This looks more like an instrument made to use a particular scale, though. Something exotic, I suppose.
It's designed with standard frets and then occasional quarter tones for what we in the west tend to call Arabic scales. Not that quarter tones are limited to any Arabic music in particular. Plenty of blues with quarter tone bends and prebends.
"What's that terrible noise?" "Well, it's either the Hoover belt needs replacing or Marc Almond's on Jools again."
Thomann case doesn't fit. Inner dimensions (L x W x H): approx. 103 x 33 x 8.5 cm Gator Jazzmaster case is too narrow by 1cm but the Rockcase Jazzmaster will… no it won't, 39cm it the outside width. Fender don't even indicate dimensions on their own site. F… them.
