James Tyler guitars never cease to impress. The Studio Elite HD is one of the greatest S type guitars on the planet. Make no mistake, this isn't a copy cat of another S shaped guitar, it's a new improved modern take on a classic. The Standard '59 neck carve is a perfect shape, it's smooth, fast, and allows the player to really connect with the wood. The Super in the bridge is a fat, chewy, and hot humbucker and the slight angle allows for a tight low end. The Studio Elite HD comes with a built in Midboost preamp that allows you to boost your signal right from your guitar! Push a driven amp for a lead tone and dial it back when you're playing rhythm. The Tuckerberry Shmear is a stunning finish and adds that extra bit of flash. These are top of the line professional grade instruments, if you're looking for that perfect S, this could be it!
