I started as a dealer for LSL in June, placing orders after following them in social media and being impressed with their guitars. When they started coming in to the shop I was stoked. The guitars are extremely well built, impeccably set up with awesome tone and playability.
This Bad Bone pays homage to Fender designs that began in the late 60's that are prized by collectors, but the guitar clearly has it's own vibe as well.
The paisley pattern lays over Pelham Blue nitro finish and is wrapped with a black nitrocellulose sunburst with no factory aging - something you don't see much from LSL.
The body is pine, a throwback to the earliest Teles, and a wood that will surprise you with it's resonant qualities and awesome tone. Pine is also very light...
The chopped Tele bridge accommodates the hot bridge humbucker in the bridge position, which is well complimented by the P90 in the neck. You'll be amazed by the tonal variations and the fat output. The tone pot is push/pull, providing coil splitting for the humbucker.
The satin finished, roasted maple neck looks awesome and feels right at home. Fret work is impeccable. Action is low, making the guitar a breeze to play. The neck fits the neck pocket like a glove - another LSL detail that contributes to the great tone of their instruments.
Our friend Dave Elke recorded a video so you can hear it, and we encourage you to go out there and check out reviews and other LSL demos so you too can find that it doesn't take a household name to make a killer guitar! We are happy to take your custom LSL order if you have a vision for your own creation.
