“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
Been looking for an Echopark? This gently used 2013 La Carne should be at the top of your list! The only real evidence of prior ownership is a small indentation (between the bridge and P90, between the D and G strings). The frets are in perfect shape and the setup is great. The previous owner took very good care of this instrument and it shows.
Echopark guitars have a made-by-hand vibe in the best ways possible. They're very well made where it counts - neck joint, fretwork, nut, and finish work. Where the made-by-hand part reveals itself is in the feel of the guitars. They're very resonant and alive - it doesn't feel like it was made in a factory by a machine. This guitar is no exception. There's a lot of heart and soul in Gabriel Currie's guitars. This translates into a guitar that's got an exceptional amount of responsiveness - they can go from light, quiet playing to full-on rock with ease.
It should be noted that this guitar isn't for small neck lovers. Its chunky neck measures .90" @ the 1st fret and 1.12" @ the 12th.
Don't miss this chance to grab an ever-rare Echopark! Priced with its original OHSC.
