Lentz Traditional S-Style Sonic Blue (2011)



"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

We are beyond thrilled to be an official Lentz dealer! As we anxiously await our first orders (we're getting close), we have this fantastic 2011 Traditional S-Style to offer. 

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. 

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. 

In short, these really are some of the most amazing traditional F-style guitars we've played. Sound too good to be true? Try one. We think you'll agree. 

Condition: Near mint save for the tiniest bit of discoloration on the pickguard by the 5-way switch and a tiny chip in the finish behind the 12th fret on the back of the neck (we're talking extremely small). All electronics work as they should with no issues. 

Priced with original hardshell case.
