Manufacturer's ID: Classic

What we say:

James Tyler has been making custom guitars out of California since the late 80s, building one-off designs for top session and celebrity players in the LA scene. Using the best blend of hand made with the benefits of lasers and computer technology Tyler guitars are the summation of James’ vast experience and skill.

Tyler guitars are meticulous, eccentric, supremely playable and full of finesse: the necks are hand shaped, the bodies are hand shaped, sanded, painted and buffed and the fretwork is carried out in a 10 step process, again completely by hand. With some outrageous finishes and that distinctive headstock shape, Tyler guitars are all about quality, feel, sound and individuality.

The Classic is Tyler’s more direct take on the ubiquitous S-type electric. Adhering slightly closer to most people’s accepted perception of the S-type, Tyler still bring their unique eye for quality, detail, fit and finish that sets this instrument apart from the less distinct hoards.

The body of the Classic is more traditional, as is the pickguard. Swamp Ash is used for the body wood, giving a bright and resonant sound and is light in weight.

The ‘With Bacon’ part of the guitar’s title refers to the finish. A ‘with bacon’ finish is Tyler’s unorthodox code for a distressed, thinner satin finish. This model has a Sea Foam Green colour, one that is bright, vibrant and charismatic.

The neck is quartersawn Maple for added strength. That famous Tyler headstock is here too, this time with a slightly different logo and some interesting stamp on the top of the head! Locking hipshot tuners adorn this beautifully bonkers headstock.

This Tyler Classic has an H-S-S pickup configuration. The uniquely shaped pickguard has two JTS3500 single coil pickups and a black open coil Shark humbucker at the bridge. The Shark is a high output alnico V unit, measuring around 15.70k on the DC resistance and throwing out hot, eminently rich and sculptable tones. Together with the single coils, you have an excellent palette of high quality tones at your fingertips.

Tyler guitars are known to make amongst the greatest S-types available anywhere: this Sea Foam Green Classic with added Bacon is ample proof!
