Builds > The Corvette

The in-progress Corvette build is our first new model that is not a homage to an existing model, but an entirely new design made to meet the mix of styles this particular client likes. We took their guitar design preferences and musical influences and fused them together into this, a guitar that is unique to them, and unlike anything they could find off the shelf.

The Corvette was strongly influenced in part by our recent offset builds, but with a fuses a strong rock/metal look about it, and takes nods from the likes of the Les Paul when it comes to keeping the front of the guitar clean, and having all the access for electronics from the rear. It also features a unique ergonomic swooped neck joint that uses ferrels to anchor the neck rather than a metal plate that would constrain the shape.

Once complete this will be fitted out with a humbucker in the neck and a t-style bridge pickup, both from our friends over at House of Tone.
