Frequently Asked Questions about James Tyler Guitars

Question: How does James Tyler create those incredible finishes?
We are afraid that is a closely guarded industry secret! No one has been able to successfully recreate the 'Burning Water' or 'Shmear' finishes nor entice Tyler to share his secrets. Those few who do know aren't telling...
Question: What does the built in booster circuit give to the guitar, sound-wise?
The booster is a mid-boost. This simple circuit can push a signal into levels of mild overdrive or add gain and volume to an already crunchy guitar sound. It is useful as a solo boost or for having a clean tone on the edge of overdrive. It has proven itself to be a major buying factor for a number of guitarists looking at Tyler guitars.
