The Imperial Guitar, our single cut offering, combines the classic thick rich tone of guitars from the 50’s updated with modern aesthetic, playability, and construction techniques. Using only premium hand-selected tone woods, these guitars provide a rich and resonant tone that is somewhat traditional but with added clarity thanks to the untraditional 3-piece neck and Dovetail neck joint. Handcrafted in Brooklyn, NY, the Imperial line of guitars offers players the opportunity to chose their own wood combinations. Whether you are looking for a vintage inspired sound or something more non-traditional and unique, the Imperial guitar can be crafted to your specific needs.

Heel-less Dovetail Neck Joint

The Imperial Guitar features our unique Dovetail neck joint which provides the tone and response of a set-neck with uninhibited access to the upper frets. The heel has been carved in such a way that transitioning from the nut to the heel of the guitar is smooth and effortless.

Brass Inset Tailpiece

All Imperial Guitar models feature a TonePro ABR bridge with Nylon Saddles for a sweeter tone when playing near the bridge and smoother tuning. Our made-in-house tailpiece features a solid brass bar that has been inset into a fingerboard-matching shell adding sustain and mass to the guitar.
