Keeping traditional body lines and a gloss black finish, but adding a midboost preamp with bypass, plus a series parallel button for each pickup gives this guitar more versatility, with a black painted headstock, gold logo and gold hardware the Black Classic Level 3 looks as great as it sounds, from the very first note.

This is a Brand new James Tyler Black Classic Level 3 - The tortoise pickguard and Classic Black finish along with the vintage neck give it awesome retro flare, while the versatile switching and electronics, carefully chosen Tonewoods and ridiculously fast action give it an awesome modern playability and resonance! All of the James Tyler guitars we get feel and sound special, truly in a class of their own.
