Just in on trade!

Embracing the distinctive offset designs from the 60s, Abernethy's approach focuses on infusing modern functionality and enhanced playability with the rich tradition of bolt-on models. This guitar has a timeless look and feel to it with an aged Nitro finish and mid-century "back to the future" appointments, along with a more modern playability and 4-conductor coil-tap capable gold foil humbuckers. The mastery bridge and tremolo system allows for perfectly smooth detuning that almost resembles a pedal if you're consistent! No jumps or stiffness in either direction- it's a fabulous addition to an already great guitar. Gently played, this one shows no signs of fret wear, and while a relic would naturally hide any blemishes or dings, everything appears to be tip-top!

This guitar sits fantastically in rock, country, shoegaze... anything that requires a powerful direct guitar tone with a little wobble!

Stand out above the crowd! (with a super cool fluted headstock)
