The Statesman LC Deluxe features a maple laminate body with a unique parallel trestle brace design which enhances its rich hollow body tone by adding sustain, while at the same time reducing unwanted feedback.
Inspired by the classic sounds pioneered by players such as Chet Atkins and Eddie Cochran, this fully hollow body guitar captures the vibe and tones of this iconic era with the utilization of a Bigsby B7 vibrato and TV Jones FilterTron pickups. Its clear and detailed voice combined with our renowned workmanship and playability make this a wonderfully versatile instrument for players operating in a wide array of genres.
