The Brantley Bourbon is a semi-acoustic guitar built using time-honored traditional methods. The solid core of the body provides a stable anchor for the bridge and stop, while the bent laminated wings contribute to it’s unique tone.
The 24 5/8″ scale allows an easier reach between frets and reduces string tension for comfortable string bending. The large body is uniquely suited for Bigsby vibratos and tuneomatic bridges.
The Brantley Bourbon is equipped with tuneomatic bridges and two humbucking pickups for optimum tone, sustain, and flexibility. Master volume and tone controls and a three way switch provide simple, but effective control over the instrument’s sound. The standard body is constructed of a solid hardwood core with bent laminated sides and back. Standard necks include mahogany and maple with maple or rosewood fretboards.
The Bourbon can be customized from “headstock to output jack” with changes anywhere in between. The body is available with premium figured wood tops or a variety of opaque or transparent finishes. Necks can be customized with inlay or unique neck and fretboard wood. Pickups may be hand wound to your needs for tone or output.
