The Spitfire : Coming Soon!

Envisaged as the perfect marriage between a '59 'Burst' and a Student Model guitar, the Spitfire is all about  the vibe and feel of a vintage golden era guitar with the updated playability and reliability that a modern player requires.

subtly carved Eastern Maple flame top, sprayed with vintage correct aniline dyes in vintage formulated nitro-cellulose lacquer, faded and lightly aged, the Spitfire is designed to look, feel and inspire like guitar from the 50's but behave like the modern, boutique handcrafted guitar it is.
