SET NECK OFFSET ELECTRIC

FROM £2100

Our set-neck model takes the Zephyr blueprint and elongates the body into a sleek, delicately angled neck joint. It's a solid workhorse heavy gigging instrument, whilst still retaining great access to the higher frets and a beautifully ergonomic body shape.

We strive to build guitars that feel like you've been playing them your whole life - your guitar should feel like an extension of you. We hand carve every neck to ensure all positions up the fretboard are effortlessly comfortable. Fret ends and neck edges are rolled for a vintage played-in feel.  The lacquer on the back of the neck can be sanded to a thin sheen, and we can employ ageing techniques and checking to thin nitro lacquer coats on the body. All this comes together to achieve perfect balance of a vintage instrument with modern playability.

ORDERING

As our instruments are custom built to order, lead times will vary based on the options you choose. Once we've discussed your build we will supply a rough timescale and will keep you updated throughout the process (as a rough guide, currently allow 6 months). We take a £600 deposit at time of ordering, with the balance payable on completion.

Occasionally we will have 'ready to go' instruments available for sale, keep an eye on this website and our social media pages for those.
