The Elusive And Mean Spirited – “El Chupacabra!”

If you are looking for a standard spec item, and want to skip the wait, we encourage you to check our “Get it Now” store before ordering.  We might already have what you are looking for in-stock and ready-to-ship.

Lead times:

Unfinished = 3-6 weeks.

Finished = 16-20 weeks.

NOTE: El Chupacabra is a hot-rodded version of that other model (Cabronita®) you might be familiar with. Our one pickup Chupacabra has control routing for one volume pot and one tone pot. For a two pickup model, we can drill for a volume pot, three way toggle switch and tone pot – just let us know in the “order notes” section at checkout. Also, let us know if you need a rear control cover. We default to the “cut-off” Tele® bridge drilling.

Finish Type

**Finish lead times are 16-20 weeks.** TruGrain is a new finish technique we are offering. The body is not grain filled, so it allows us to spray the finish thinner. This process removes a few ounces of weight, gives the body more resonance, shows off the beautiful wood grain patterns under the finish and looks super cool! (See our recent post on our “News” page!)

Finish Color

Body Relic – Aging Work

Please view our galleries – the link is at the top of the page – for examples of each level of relic!


Tape & Scrape?

Is your body getting a finish AND receiving binding? Bodies that are getting a finish and are being bound incur a $45 per side for “tape and scrape” labor charge. (If your order requires this charge, and you do no select this box, we will contact you for additional payment after the order is placed. If you are unsure, just reply “No” and we will bill you after the fact if the charge applies.)
