Slab ’59


Slab ’59

The Slab 59 is our version of the late 50’s design with a modern twist. We chose what we felt were the best parts of the guitars built from 1959-61 and added a flatter radius, slightly larger frets and compensated saddles. This makes a classic feeling and sounding guitar that is slightly thicker than its Blackguard or Whiteguard brothers, without some of the limitations found in the original.
