Slab Blackguard


Slab Blackguard

The Slab Blackguard is our take on the early 50’s classic design with a modern twist. We chose what we felt were the best parts of the guitars built from 1950-54 and added a flatter radius, slightly larger frets and compensated saddles. This makes a classic feeling and sounding guitar without some of the limitations found in the original.
