THE CHALLENGER


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.
