1980's Bill Lawrence (by Morris Japan) BL1 '54 Style Stratocaster w/Humbuckers
Bill Lawrence branded guitars were made by Moridaira Guitars (responsible for Morris guitars, among others) and were built around the impressive range of Bill Lawrence pickups.
This is a mid 80's BL1 model that's loaded with two L500 humbuckers, a three way Les Paul style toggle and master volume/tone controls. 22 fret rosewood fingerboard and a smooth gloss maple neck (with a '54 soft v profile), looks to be a two-piece alder body with a clear poly finish (weighs 3.5kg's). Medium-jumbo frets give it a real Les Paul feel with the shape and weight of a Fender.
We gave this a full teardown and clean along with a fret polish, fretboard oil and restring. Good overall cosmetic condition with a couple dings here and there. Nut is shimmed on the A and D strings as it's suited for heavier strings (currently set up with 9-42's).
