"I think what sets Lentz guitars apart is my experience with so many guitars over the years. I've refinished hundreds of vintage Strat's and Tele's, not to mention several 50's Les Pauls. What this is has done for me is to give me an ear for certain nuances that I found to be the essence of guitar sounds I like." -Scott Lentz

Made in southern California by a father and son pair (Scott Sr and Scott Jr), the Reserve line from Lentz guitars utilizes cabinet aged woods (25+ years is typical), lightweight one piece bodies, Brazilian rosewood fretboards made from stock dating back to 1915, pickups wound specifically for each guitar, nitrate guards (in this case a single ply tortoise guard), and the electronics are carefully matched in order to achieve the best tones possible - no detail is left untouched.

Plugged in at rehearsal or stage volume? Stunning. 3-dimensional, nuanced, powerful tones. The tone control works extremely well allowing you to really dial in the guitar to your rig. These are touch sensitive guitars in all the right ways. Don't be mistaken though - you can definitely dig in and it'll reward that style of playing, it's more that you don't have to live in that world to get something great from it (some Tele's just sound better when you hit 'em hard). It'll do soft picking through heavy-handed picking with ease. 

Condition: Near mint.
