It had a maple top and poplar back, in the a single cutaway Blueshawk body shape.  It had two Blues 90 pickups with hum-cancelling dummy coils. The controls were master volume, master tone with push/pull pot to bypass the Varitone,  a three-way pickup selector switch and a 6-way Varitone control. It came in Ebony, Blues Burst, or Wine Red finishes.
