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.



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. 


Premium tonewoods subject to availability.

Do you want this guitar body to have a universal rout? If so, ignore the next 3 entries about pickup routs.

Neck Pickup Rout?

What pickup rout would you like in the neck position?

Middle Pickup Rout?

What pickup rout would you like in the middle position?

Bridge Pickup Rout?

What pickup rout would you like in the bridge position?

Finish Type?

Finish lead times are 8 -12 weeks.**(See our ‘Lead Times’ page) 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!

Finish Color?

Degree of Relic?

For finished bodies only! Please view our galleries – the link is at the top of the page – for examples of each level of relic.

Body Binding

We offer Top binding or Top and Back (Double Bound). Binding costs more on a body getting a finish, Due to the extra labor and materials involved in taping and scraping. Please keep in mind that if you choose body binding on a body style that normally has contours (forearm/tummy cut), these contours will be omitted.

Rear Routing (T-Style / S-Style ONLY)

Additional Notes?

Instructions given in this section will need to be cleared by us via email or phone and may be subject to additional charges.


Would you like a Tummy and/or Forearm Contour?
