Superlative Series Guitars & Basses

RS Guitarworks is proud to announce the only authorized and endorsed guitar by Country music legend Marty Stuartand his band, the Fabulous Superlatives. RS Guitarworks got together with Marty, Cousin Kenny Vaughan and Apostle Paul Martin to create a series of instruments that meets Marty and the Fabulous Superlatives’ desire for classic feel, tone and build quality.

The RS Superlative guitar has a one piece maple neck with dimensions taken directly from Marty’s favorite Tele, ‘Clarence’ (the late Clarence White’s bender-modified 1954 Esquire). A lightweight pine body with a silver sparkle nitrocellulose finish makes the RS Guitarworks Superlative a picker’s dream. Lindy Fralin custom-wound SuperlaTone pickups and world-renowned RS Guitarworks electronics round out this amazing guitar.

The RS Superlative bass has a one piece maple neck with Apostle Paul’s special neck contour, an ultra lightweight alder body, a custom Lindy Fralin P-Bass pickup and RS electronics. A silver sparkle nitrocellulose finish makes this bass look as good as it sounds.

The RS Superlative guitars and basses were used extensively on Marty and the Fabulous Superlatives’ new album, Nashville, Volume 1: Tear The Woodpile Down (2012, Sugar Hill Records).
