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!)

Description

Based on the 1962 model, no other body shape is more notable as a rock n’ roll icon.  The S-Style guitar body features deep 1960s contours, three single coil pickups and a classic block tremolo rout. This S-Style hard tail guitar body would make an excellent replacement for any S-Style guitar, vintage or modern.  If you are seeking a build, the S-Style is a more adept build that may be best tackled after a build or two is under your belt.

This guitar is cornerstone of rock n’ roll. It has graced the shoulders of Stevie Ray Vaughn, Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix and so many more.  Built to fit and accept parts the same parts as a Fender®  Stratocaster® or “Strat®.”
