These designs take our approach to ergonomics and balance and frame them in to a more traditional shapes. These designs are more aesthetically driven than the Modern range but are still designed for comfort and long term playability.
I believe all guitars should inspire the right music for the player. These instruments are designed to emulate a more classic vibe and do tend to sit well with more established genres of music, but they can be tailored towards a particular style of music also.
As with all of my guitars, these models are completely customisable to suit your needs, I have access to a massive range of woods, materials, pickups, parts and finish options to help tailor the instrument to you. For more information please see Custom Orders and Stock.
These shapes are designed specifically as guitars, but could be modified to be basses or hybrid instruments, they can also be modified to be headless, fanned/straight fret, extended range and so much more.
Lyra this retro styled off-set model offers many of the ergonomic features of our modern guitars. It has the biggest body shape in our range, but features a super resonant thin profile as standard. It is also the only classic model to have the inside leg contour. See more of our tock guitar here.
SB4 This guitar is the precursor to the Lyra model, it is a smaller body guitar that lends itself well to a shorter scale. It works very well as a travel friendly jazz and blues guitar. I am no longer building this guitar for stock, but I have one stock guitar remaining and it is still available to order.
SB3 this is arguably the smallest guitar I now offer. This very thin and compact single cut was designed to fit perfectly in a sitting position. We then updated the original design, with a longer body and upper shoulder to improve the balance as well. I am no longer building this guitar for stock, but I have one stock guitar remaining and it is still available to order.
