"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

Well, as happens with most Lentz we get into the shop, it sold before we had a chance to post it. That said, we can't waste an opportunity to share this beautiful Traditional S-Style with you. 

One of the things that makes a Lentz so special is the wood they're made from. Scott and his son, Scott Jr, have an incredible stash of woods at their disposal (most, if not all, of which was purchased decades ago and has been curing in their shop ever since). Each guitar is extremely resonant and lightweight, the pickups are wound specifically for that particular guitar, and the electronics are carefully matched in order to achieve the best tones possible - no detail is left untouched.

What you notice immediately upon strumming your first chords is the resonance of these guitars - they feel very alive and musical in your hands even without the aid of an amp. Plugged in at rehearsal or stage volume? Stunning. 3-dimensional, nuanced, powerful tones. The tone controls work extremely well allowing you to really dial in the guitar to your rig. No brittle or weak bridge pickup tones here - the bridge pickup on this guitar will easily hang with the best Tele bridge pickup.

Do a little poking around online and you'll find the name Lentz come up time and again when folks ask: "Who makes the best F-style guitars?" Flawless build quality, tones that might ruin you for other guitars, fat but comfortable neck carve, and a slinky feel - all things Lentz are acclaimed for and no-doubt present on this guitar.
