PRICE: $2,350

The Coupe is the one that started it all. Based on the first guitar I ever built, the design has been refined over the years to produce an incredibly comfortable and versatile guitar that looks and sounds amazing.

The neck is comfortably chunky (~.860"@ 1st fret, ~.960" at 12th) and uses the signature Blackstien neck joint. It has a round profile resembling some of the vintage favorites and a 12" fretboard radius. The 22 stainless steel jumbo frets are polished to perfection and all are clear of the body. The design and position of the cutaway and neck heel provide effortless access to the entire neck and an overall extremely well-balanced guitar. In keeping with the minimalist concept, The strings terminate at a one-piece compensated aluminum wrap around bridge. The body design is comfortable and intuitive -It is medium weight, solid Alder with all the carved contours for comfort and inlaid racing stripes for looks. Controls are minimal and no-nonsense. Just a master volume and a 4-way pickup selector lever which provides a lot of tonal versatility. The Coupe characteristically sings loud and clean with good attack, tons of sustain and great clarity. Choose a pair of Phat Boy™ pickups for higher output, honky mids and lots of punch, or the mellower B-Type™ pickups for a smooth and extremely well balanced vintage tone. Buzz Cut auto engage variable hum canceling is standard.

Body: 2 piece comfort contoured Alder w/inlaid racing stripes. High gloss finish in custom colours.
Neck: 1 piece quarter-sawn Maple w/Ebony fretboard, ivoroid binding, stainless steel frets, white pearloid dot inlays, bone nut. High gloss vintage amber finish w/ headstock face matching the body/racing stripes.
