The guitar pictured above was specified with some beautiful woods! For the body we have a one piece highly figured Flamed Ash body, which was grown right here in the UK.


 The wood was far too beautiful to cover with a large pickguard so the customer specified a half size guard, which gives the best of both worlds - retaining traditional looks, whilst not covering too much wood.

For the neck, we have more flames, except this time Flamed Maple which makes a harmonious transition from body to neck. The fretboard is responsibly sourced Ebony from Crelicam and features Stainless Steel frets for a lifetime of use.

The pickups are both by Kent Armstrong -  we have a traditional single coil at the bridge for all the typical Tele tones and a Stealth P90 at the neck. This pickup is fully hum cancelling, yet does not lose any of the classic P90 sound, so the two pickups compliment each other perfectly.

Please remember, any of our models can be specified with a different number of strings, scale length, frets, pickups or anything else for that matter! Also we offer the option for you to design your very own unique guitar or bass with your own body shape and specifications.
