“I love Juniors, Teles, some of the Supros and Hagstrums and definitely old Gretches! Those elements combined to create my overall inspiration. The main thing that I wanted to do was to figure out how to make an improved one from start to finish 100% by hand. I want to use my hands, eyes and ears to select and build every part of every instrument. That was the driving force in the idea behind doing this!” - Gabriel Currie
Fans of late 50s Gibson Juniors will find a lot to love about this 2013 Pelham Blue Echopark El Cabillo - serial number 3!
What Gabriel Currie adds to the classic LP Jr / Special recipe with this El Cabillo is style, vibe, and a touch of modern versatility thinks to the fantastic sounding Filter'Tron neck pickup. This is an extremely resonant guitar that feels great in your hands the second you pick it up - chunky '59 neck carve, perfect balance, and a great, easy to play set-up.
We couldn't get a bad sound out of this El Cabillo. Into a Fender, Marshall, or Vox style amp that mahogany/P90 magic really reveals itself (our personal favorite is a Vox). Sparkle, chime, mid-range bite are here in spades. The neck pickup adds some really fat solo tones for those players who live on the neck pickup.
Condition: It's a relic'd guitar, so beyond the intentional wear, this guitar is like-new from Echopark. There's no fret wear to speak of and it's setup is spot on. Please note: the strap button was relocated to the horn by the original owner (see pics).
A seriously cool guitar that is definitely a rock machine - but - don't be fooled into thinking that is all this beautiful guitar can do. It's far more versatile than it might seem - the true beauty of a stripped down mahogany/P90 guitar. Priced with hardshell case.
