LsL Instruments Saticoy Guitar, Lake Placid Blue over 3-Tone Sunburst
Music Store Live is proud to offer up this beautiful Saticoy custom guitar from our friends over at LsL! For the player who loves that vintage vibe of a beautiful S-style guitar shape and tone but demands a high-end, boutique feel, this is a great option!
The roasted maple neck looks beautiful and has some great flame figuring on it. It has a medium C neck shape that should instantly feel comfortable to most guitarists. It'll give you a solid piece of wood to hold onto with your fretting hand but is also super comfortable if you're looking to play fast and shred up high.
Tonally it definitely is reminiscent of a classic and vintage guitar. It's got that open and airy, vocal-like tone that strats from the 60s were so well known for. I love how the bridge pickup has plenty of snap and brightness to it without sounding shrill or overly piercing. The neck pickup gets warm and round without sounding loose. The middle has some really nice twang to it as well that carries some fullness while being bright and cutting through the mix.
This is another incredible build and checks all the boxes for someone needing a handmade custom shop guitar that's going to remind them of all the best parts of an old guitar but without any of the drawbacks. It's pure perfection.
Another step back in time.
When I decided to make this kind of guitar I figured that I would start with the beginning; 1954. I was lucky enough to get my hands on a real holy-grail kind of guitar that was loaned to us. It was number 1055 and she was and still is a honey of a guitar. We couldn't have a better example.
We worked hard to get that same, vintage tone and feel with a few improvements along the way. Our body shape is slightly different and sexier. Smooth, hand-shaped contours make for a smoother, more flowing shape.
Our Saticoy models also have the lower tone knob controlling the tone on the bridge pickup alone while the middle tone knob controls both the middle and bridge pickups.
We believe that our Saticoy is a worthy and true example of a vintage sound and feel that only comes with gigantic price tags. And even if you were lucky enough to have one of those, you wouldn't want to be yanking it into dark, sticky-floored bars. Our goal was to make a guitar that would be great enough to attract some of the best players around. Now, several of my guitar heroes are playing Saticoys. How cool is that?
