BilT Relevator LS Lake Placid Blue (2016)


Killer 2016 Lake Placid Blue Bilt Revelator LS just in! 

Bilt guitars are made in Des Moines, Iowa and are current favorites of folks like Nels Cline (Wilco), Wayne Sermon (Imagine Dragons), Dave Keuning (The Killers) to name but a few. These guitars are at once familiar, yet offer some very cool features you'll not find on other guitars. Let's start where it counts...

These guitars are incredibly well made and this mint condition guitar sports some upgrades - Mastery Bridge/Tremolo, Lake Placid Blue finish, and a pearloid pickguard. The attention to detail is obvious from the moment you pick it up - expertly installed frets and nut, excellent finish work, Mastery trem.... It's all there, and it's a blast to play. 

The Lollar Jazzmaster pickups sound exactly like you'd expect. That is to say, round, warm, gorgeous clean tones a la a Fender Jazzmaster. They handle overdrive really well and would make any Sonic Youth fan grin. Just a killer, fun to play guitar! 

Condition: Like new. 

Priced with original Bilt hardshell case.
