"I think what sets Lentz guitars apart is my experience with so many guitars over the years. I've refinished hundreds of vintage Strat's and Tele's, not to mention several 50's Les Pauls. What this is has done for me is to give me an ear for certain nuances that I found to be the essence of guitar sounds I like." -Scott Lentz
Killer 2013 Lentz JR Reserve Strat-style just in!
The Reserve line of Lentz guitars utilizes cabinet aged woods (25+ years is typical), lightweight one piece bodies (in this case 3.5 lbs), Brazilian rosewood fretboards made from stock dating back to 1915, pickups wound specifically for each guitar (the Jr Reserves sport a hotter bridge pickup), nitrate guards, and the electronics are carefully matched in order to achieve the best tones possible - no detail is left untouched.
What you notice immediately upon strumming your first chords is the resonance of these guitars - they feel very alive and musical in your hands even without the aid of an amp. We can't overstate the importance of the "Lentz feel" - it's everything with these guitars and impossible to pinpoint, but it's addictive and one of the reasons these guitars as so highly regarded by so many. Plugged in at rehearsal or stage volume? Stunning. 3-dimensional, nuanced, powerful tones. The tone controls work extremely well allowing you to really dial in the guitar to your rig.
Condition: Near mint. Small amount of discoloration on the pickguard surrounding the 5-way swith (very minor).
In short, this Jr Reserve really is one of the best traditional F-style guitars we've played. Sound too good to be true? Try one. We think you'll agree. Priced with original hardshell case.
