Available in Satin Black, tortoise guard


The Stinger Model was designed to be reminiscent of a classic era guitar in looks and in tone but with modern players in mind. 

In considering the finish, we wanted to make a guitar that "feels" played-in and pleasant to the touch from the tuners all the way to the lower bouts. The hand selected, quarter-sawn African mahogany is carefully polished before putting a drop of finish on and polished again with museum grade wax after the final coat of hand rubbed gun stock oil. 

Not only did this guitar have to feel great, it had to be a truly reactive extension of the players hands. The decision to use Hand wound pick ups in the Stinger was a no-brainer. They are possibly the most expressive pickups around, giving the player total tactile control. Of course, you have the option to swap in your choice of premium pickups by selecting the "mod" options and specifying the brand and model you would like instead.

Each Stinger is made to order. Please allow 4-6 weeks to arrive.
