Here is the first Karge (Pronounced Kar-Gee), delivered last week to start our official dealership with the Massachusetts-based builder, Randy Springis.
Karge guitars are infused with Randy's experience in fine furniture reproduction - the eye and skill of a master craftsman are apparent from the fretwork (which is exquisite), to the crazy laminations between the outrageously flamed maple neck and the thick slab of Brazilian that is the fretboard, to the hand-carved neck heel and headstock transitions.
This guitar sports that crazy maple neck in a profile that is so comfortable to play, and the carve at the headstock is the best. It looks and feels amazing!
Randy builds from raw, select lumber
The alder body is loaded with a set of Klein Epic 62 pickups and a sweetly-wired harness to Emerson pots.
The guitar hits the early 60's Strat nail on the head, but with distinction.
You're going to be blown away by the workmanship, sound, feel and overall value in this instrument.
This dealership is more like a partnership, and I couldn't be happier to be involved with a salt-of-the-Earth guy like Randy! Keep an eye here for more Karge guitars, coming soon. We'll be ordering some very special instruments, loaded with vintage pickups, etc.
