Single Barrel Red Black Burst With Hard Case
Two-color sunburst red and black
Born from the styles of early country and blues performance guitars the Single Barrel savors much of the look and vibe of those legendary guitars. Unlike vintage guitars, the Single Barrel is manufactured using state-of-the-art, precision machinery that insures its modern play-abilities.
We slightly scaled down the body from the heavier vintage guitars for both comfort and weight. At 7 pounds, it’s easy to play for hours. With our new 3×3 head design and our Bootlegger logo & whiskey art combined with our Jack Daniels (stolen) fretboard diamonds its looks are at home in any roadhouse bar or dance hall.
With select Mahogany hardwood for the body and Maple hardwood for the neck. Our semi hollow-body, single cut F hole, and string through construction provide both natural resonance and sustain. Chrome Tele style bridge assembly with six adjustable saddles set in Tesla single-coil pickup, our hot Tesla P90 on the bridge, and bone white binding. We add a 3-way selector switch to blend or isolate the pickups with a vintage-style chrome control plate
This guitar can twang country or sing the darker bluestones. You can blend the pickups for a clean Jazz style. This guitar rocks from Hank to Hendrix and everything in between.
The Bootlegger head design is as much function as it is formed. As a race car builder, driver I understand that any angle or bend can be a point of weakness under stress. We run brake lines and fuel lines with as little bending as possible. The same works with guitar strings the straighter from the tuning post to the nut mean less stress on strings and strings hold tuning and resonate better.
Our Bootlegger’s neck is best compared to a PRS JM shape, Fender modern C shape or a Gibson Slim Taper D shape for feel and playability. It is by far the easiest and most recognizable shape for guitar players across the board. It delivers that vintage feels with a modern twist to keep it relevant and functional for guitar players playing any genre of music.
We build with graphite nuts, along with our head and neck design this is best possible pro setup for your guitar.
Like Single Barrel Whiskey it is of a premium class, elegant, smooth and refined. Its sound is all about tone and resonance.
