My original Challenger model is packed with style and tone to set you apart from the rest. The double cutaway design gives you easy access to the upper frets with a unique heel design for maximum comfort and playability. Each Challenger is beautifully hand bound providing a stand-out look and added protection from bumps and bruises along the edge.
The Challenger is offered Standard (shown), Deluxe, Custom and Elite models. Custom options and pickup configurations are available.
I use Lollar pickups exclusively to ensure the richest tones possible....
Belly cuts make my guitars comfortable for all playing styles....
It ages appropriately with the wood letting the wood grain and burst finishes come alive....
Challengers get variable plies of binding both on the body and neck....
REAL SHELL INLAYS
I only use real shell inlays for superior figuring and luster....
One of my signature design elements. I do each one by hand....
My hand carved heel provides easy, comfortable access to higher frets....
My necks are made from quartersawn wood for stability and strength....
