It is no secret that we are huge fans of Lentz instruments here at Capital Guitars. Offered here is a recent Lentz Traditional S upgraded with "all the fixings." This wonderful S-style instrument has: a light weight Alder body with three tone sunburst nitrocellulose lacquer finish and a total weight of just 7.25 pounds (7 pounds, 4 ounces); a one-piece Maple neck with a large soft V to C shape and depth measurements of .940" at the 1st fret increasing to just over 1.00" at the 12th fret; a very dark Brazilian Rosewood fretboard with a 9.5" radius, jumbo (6100) frets and a 1.655" bone nut; a Callahan tremolo bridge assembly; and for electronics, Lentz vintage output single coils, paper-in-oil caps and traditional Strat controls.

Like virtually every Lentz guitar I have ever played this guitar is a joy to play and hear. The playability is superb and the tone is crisp and quacky, like a Strat-style guitar should sound.

This example is in very good condition. The best guitars get their fair share of play and this Lentz is no different. It shows a few tiny bumps and bruises which you will find upon close inspection, but nothing serious. The neck, fretboard and frets are virtually spotless. It comes in it's original blonde G&G case.

A new example of this guitar with these upgrades will cost you approximately $4.7K and a wait of several months. Get this superb example for quite a bit and less and get it today. Get yourself a Lentz, you will be very glad you did!
