PRICE: $2,050
Built for no-nonsense rock n' roll, it shares all the same features as the Coupe, pared down to just one pickup in the bridge position, and one master volume control. Sometimes that's all you need.

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 (shown here with stop tailpiece/T-O-M).
The body design is comfortable an intuitive -It is medium weight, solid Alder with all the carved contours for comfort and inlaid racing stripes for looks. 1 pickup, 1 volume. Simple. (Optional tone control on a concentric stacked knob -or- dual output tapped coil with push/pull pot are vailable).
The Speeder characteristically sings loud and clean with good attack, tons of sustain and great clarity. Choose a Phat Boy™ pickup for higher output, honking mids and lots of punch, or the mellower B-Type™ for a smooth and extremely well balanced vintage tone.
Buzz Cut 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, ebony binding, stainless steel frets, white pearloid dot inlays, bone nut. High gloss vintage amber finish w/ headstock face matching the body/racing stripes.
