Our newest offering from Heatley Guitars has arrived! Say hello to the Beaumont!
For those unfamiliar with Scott Heatley's work- he's a Canadian-based luthier (British Columbia to be exact) who's been building custom designed electric guitars for over two decades. His designs and builds are fresh, exciting, and flat out superb.
Ok, back to this sharp-dressed man.
In a tuxedo aesthetic that'll make your jaw drop, this Heatley Beaumont packs the Parisienne model shape and general design sense into a bolt-neck version with some slight tweaks along the way. Just like the stunning color scheme, the tone and feel is anything but traditional. A pair of Wolfetone Mean (Neck) and Meaner (Bridge) P90s absolutely sing both clean and overdriven, with rich harmonic content, dynamic response, and just the right amount of output that only enhances their versatility.
The beautifully carved flame maple bolt-on neck with ebony fingerboard and one-piece swamp ash body offer up that classic snap and clarity, while the compound fingerboard radius, custom made Heatley hardtail bridge, and Hipshot locking tuners add that extra level of playability and function.
Saying that this guitar has a touch of class would simply not do it justice. Check out the custom made black/white volume and tone knobs, multi ply fingerboard binding, and even the white neck screws with countersunk black washers! Scott has left no stone unturned on maximizing the look and feel of this black-tie beauty. Fortunately, it's got the tones to match.
