Description

"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

Do a little poking around online and you'll find the name Lentz come up time and again when folks ask: "Who makes the absolute best F-style guitars?" Flawless build quality, tones that might just ruin you for other guitars, fat but comfortable neck carves, and a slinky feel - all things Lentz are acclaimed for, and this Reserve T in a beautiful Mary Kaye finish is no exception.

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.

The Reserve line of Lentz guitars utilizes cabinet aged woods (25+ years is typical), lightweight one piece bodies, Brazilian rosewood fretboards made from stock dating back to 1915, pickups wound specifically for each guitar, nitrate guards, and the electronics are carefully matched in order to achieve the best tones possible - no detail is left untouched. 

Plugged in at rehearsal or stage volume? Stunning. 3-dimensional, nuanced, powerful tones. The tone control works extremely well allowing you to really dial in the guitar to your rig.

Condition: Near mint.

These don't tend to hang around long and could easily be your only Fender-style guitar!
