If the idea of a slightly more traditional leaning Lentz is appealing to you? You owe it to yourself to try one of the their lawsuit-era models - you won't be disappointed.

If you're already in the Lentz-sphere, so to speak, you likely know what you're looking at and it's why you're here. For the uninitiated, there are three 'categories' of Lentz Guitars to be aware of: the Reserve Series, the Traditional Series, and their "pre-lawsuit" guitars.

The Reserve, as the name implies, is their top-of-the-line offering, featuring flamed neck woods and aged one-piece bodies. The Traditional series are equally as great, just slightly toned down with regards to the flamed woods. Lastly, we have the "pre-lawsuit" guitars. To clarify, there was no lawsuit, but as happens with builders who are making Fender style instruments with a traditional Fender headstock, Fender sent a cease and desist letter which led to the current Lentz headstock.

The pre-lawsuit Lentz guitars tend to be from the early 2000s and feature a traditional Fender headstock for those who insist on a traditional look. We've always felt this era of Lentz guitars feel ever so slightly different from their current guitars, but not in a bad way (far from it, actually).

All the hallmarks of a Lentz that we've fallen in love with are present - a resonant / alive feel, incredibly dynamic tones, and chunky neck carves - yet, the feel is just a touch closer to a Fender. The finish on the neck is part of this difference. Newer Traditionals and Reserves have a really wonderful satin feel while the lawsuit-era guitars feel a touch more like Fender's gloss finish (though not thick at all).

Plugged in, the responsive, dynamic tones we've come to know and love with a Lentz is here in spades. These guitars excel at edge of breakup or medium gain tones in addition to the classic Fender clean tones - think vintage Strat with a bit more muscle behind it. It's a remarkable experience to play a Lentz into a wound up amp - this gorgeous Fiesta Red version being no exception.

Condition: Very Good +. There is natural light wear on the neck finish (where your thumb travels up/down the neck) and light marks on the body. Frets show very little wear and the fresh setup feels great.
