Not Your Daddy’s Tele

A modern take on the classic T-style guitar we all know and love. With it’s warped body and cubist inspired headstock, this guitar turns heads while delivering the tone. I loaded this guitar with pickups I wound myself to vintage specs – to ensure that each guitar sounds as great as it looks.

The nut width is a little wider than a tele at 1-3/4”, but the neck is less thick overall. I can build them as thin as .680”, but most people like something around .750”. Every neck comes with a dual action truss rod. As an homage to builders of the past like Moserite, I added a zero fret. This makes the tone as even on the open strings as the fretted. 

These guitars are comfortable and offer everything I love about guitar. They sound vintage, and feel modern.

Chambering

The true heart of this guitar is not visible from the outside.
“Speaker Cone chambering” is a new development for Liggett Guitars, and results is a highly responsive, resonant guitar. The chambers are not made to reduce overall instrument weight, but to increase sustain and liveliness in the instrument. We call this chambering system “speaker cone” because the chambers emanate from the bridge, the main point of vibration on the body. 

Tone Block

This is another first for us: 1.8 pounds of brass that the bridge system bolts directly into from the top. The block is solid, and is drilled and tapped for the bridge’s machine screws. This paired with the Speaker Cone chambering makes for a playing experience not usually found on an electric guitar.

& Knobs

Bee boop.

Buckeye Burl Top

The top on this Picasso model was injected with dye and stabilizing resin inside of a vacuum chamber. Often used to stabilize knife scales for knife-making, we took this concept and built a larger than normal chamber, and used it for this buckeye burl top. The resin hardens the otherwise soft wood, and locks in the dye that was mixed with the resin.
