MKIII

$ 1,500.00 CAD

The MKIII is a smaller superstrat platform with big tone.  A very lightweight instrument, the MKIII won't give you any trouble playing the whole show.  The upper horn is overtop the 12th fret for a balanced standing position with the lower cutaway peeled back for easier access to the 24th fret.

The neck profile of the MKIII has a C profile with 20 mm @1st fret tapering to 21mm@ 12th.

The MKIII has a tilted headstock at 10 degrees - different than the paddle headstocks of the Oswego and Quadra.

6 in line locking ratio tuners, hardtail bridge, Tusq nut and CTS pots make for a deadly cocktail of quality hardware and electronics.

Guitars take a minimum 8-10 weeks to build. All guitars ship with a gig bag or hardshell case unless otherwise requested. Customers are responsible for paying import duties in their respective states. International shipping available.

Due to the nature of guitar building I may have my hands covered in glue or a few inches from a bandsaw blade.

It is best to email me with any questions and I will get back to you within 2 business days at the latest.
