S-Classic

Our S-Classic style model offers superior built and master grade wood and materials.

Based on the iconic models of the 60's, Amazing playability, super light one piece alder bodies. C shape neck with 9.5" radius, medium jumbo highly polished frets and our trademark headstock.

These guitars were made to give you an extra dry tone with great punch and the sharp attack of an old worn and played instrument.

A set of Macmull pickups, wound by hand, is matched to each guitar individually.

We made a lot of effort to make these sound truly vintage after years of gigging and playing.

About The Guitar

Body

Most will not admit but we truly believe that lighter wood is a better sounding wood. More resonance, vibration, sharper attack, and perfect EQ right out of the box. Not to mention the comfort they give the player.

Since we only use one piece Alder and Ash, we had to search for the lightest pieces. They are very pricey and very risky to work with since they are so expensive and dry. How light? Well, we did something never done before - we use a weight limit, the lighter it is, the pricier it is.  We set 2 weight groups:

light and super-light.

In the light group you will not find a guitar that will weigh more than 3.45kg (7.60lbs)

For the super-light group we are offering an amazing 3.25kg (7.16lbs) limit.

All bodies are not weight relieved and made from one piece, old kiln dried alder.

Neck

All necks are premium maple. Straight grained and white (we like the white colored ones for its sonic advantages. And prefer the rift sawn for its mellower tone, although, quarter swan is also an option).

Each neck is reinforced with retro style single action truss rod, just like they use to make them in the 50s. Most manufacturers use the double action truss rod even on vintage replicas. We found out that a single truss rod will give you a better neck-body resonance and you'll be able to feel that playing the S-Classic unplugged.

Headstock

The original unique style headstock of the S-Classic is a real gem. A straight line design that fits the simple classic mojo and looks retro resembling an acoustic guitar headstocks from the 30’s.

Vintage tuners with white plastic buttons and silk printed black logo blend into a classic elegant design.

Fingerboard

Madagascar rosewood boards that were cut in the 50’s and waited 60 years just to be on the S-Classic neck. Super light, dried and beautifully grained. A top choice by us over any other fingerboard material.

Hide glue joint for truss rod canal and for the fingerboard joint.

Finger Board radius is 9.5” for comfort.

Rolled edges for vintage feel and comfort.

Dunlop 6105 frets, extra polished and rolled to perfection.

Pickups and Electronics

These guitars were made to give you an extra dry tone with great punch and the sharp attack of an old worn and played instrument.

A set of Macmull pickups, wound by hand, is matched to each guitar individually.

All S-Classic guitars comes with CTS pots (highest grade)

Paper-In-Oil Caps are standard in all our guitars.

We are proud of our electrics assembly.  We use the highest grade pots and caps and push back cloth wire, making our electronics assembly pretty on the eyes and the ears.

Finish

Pure nitrocellulose lacquer is one of the key factors for tone. Pure nitro takes more time to dry and harder to work with but when it comes to sound we will not compromise.  Available in all vintage colors from the 50s and 60s.
