Just arrived today.
Congrats!!! Killer looking guitar. I bet it sounds great! Enjoy!
That's the one from the Chicago Tonefest, no? I bet that's a dream to play. I know my knew one is.
Ahhh, nice! Alder or ash under the flames?
That is soooo sweeet! And classy too.
Flame maple veneer top over lightweight swamp ash with vintage style binding and a nitrocellulose lacquer sunburst finish. Scott lacquered and tinted the guard, knobs and switch tip for that warm "vintage" look.
The neck is our usual big Lentz profile. Lightweight and resonant with a Indian rosewood fingerboard inlayed with crowns.
Lentz B'Kaster pickup in the "treble" position and L-90 in the "rhythm"
Did he change the headstock label?
Beautiful guitar all around.
I'm really getting tired of seeing these Lentz postings!!
It's making me want one like CRAZY!!!!
...hey Michael...John A here...looks like you replaced one fine Lentz with yet another...you must be bursting to play it.:RoCkIn
..."Smokin Lentz" sounds like a good uptempo-ish blues number for the cats...dig?
Not mine at this time, just checkin her out. This is what i have to say so far
...I tried lightin' it upit was so hot...it nearly burned my hand!
I'm loving that guitar, just not crazy about that 'guard on top.
Dude i am about to run her through my tweed super for the first time.
Putting aside all hype this guitar is incredible
The guard and tip are all laquered up and tinted they have sooooo much mojo i don't know if i can ever get a standard guard again
...I think my DL90 (Chip) also has a "lacquered-up," celluloid pickguard...I can't go back either.
What a great looking guitar! Congrats!
Wicked Lentz you have there.. Nice Marshall setups too..
So how does it sound?
Would love to hear the report on how it sounds straight into that tweed super. I'm a traditionlist to say the least, but I just LOVE the look of these guitars.
How is the output voiced on the back single-coil pickup? Is it hot or more round and toneful? Both?
