Johan Gustavsson of Sweden makes some of the finest electric guitars currently being built anywhere on planet Earth. Period. Each guitar is in itself a masterpiece which he has somehow bestowed with a tone, look and feel that is reminiscent of a well preserved 50's vintage classic. Along with these desirable vintage qualities, however, you also get modern specs, a build quality that is beyond reproach and playability that few real vintage electrics can match. Offered here is a fairly rare model from Johan, a Fullerblaster S, a semi-hollow version of his own interpretation of the classic T-style guitar. This guitar's specs include: a semi-hollow Mahogany body with a lightly flamed Maple top, faded cherry burst nitrocellulose finish and a total guitar weight of just 6.4 pounds; a 25.5" string scale Mahogany neck with a '59 C shape and depth measurements of .874" at the 1st fret and .960" at the 12th; a gorgeous Brazilian Rosewood fretboard with 9.5"-12" compound radius, 1.680" bone nut and 6105 frets; a Callaham Tele bridge and saddles; and for electronics, Wolfetone pickups with a modern Tele wiring setup. While based on a classic T-style design, the Mahogany construction and the humbucker in the neck position give this guitar a decidedly Les Paul-like feel and a much more complex tone to go along with it's Tele twang. It's contoured, semi-hollow body also makes for a more woody and airy tone and makes for a more comfortable player too. Other than the light distressing that Johan gave it at the factory, this guitar shows little sign of play, frets included. It comes with it's original hardshell case and paperwork, including the CITES certificate for the Brazilian fretboad. Not many of these S models are built and even fewer make it to the secondary guitar market. Get yourself something extremely special with this superb Gustavsson Fullerblaster S.
