Rare Callaham S Model in Alder/Maple in a beautiful stock Candy Tangerine finish! No longer made, Bill Callaham stopped taking orders for his hand built guitars in 2011 and the last Callaham S Model went out the door in 2014. These guitars are usually much more expensive and generally range from $3,800-4,500 but this one is priced to sell. Guitar plays excellently and sounds as expected: Fantastic. Frets are in outstanding shape/immaculate (there is a small ding on the board at the 9th fret; see pic). 

The pickups that came on these guitars are Bill Callaham’s Fralin Special Wind’s and the bridge p.u. also has the base plate installed by Callaham. Beautiful flame maple neck! A couple of dings (see pics) but otherwise in stellar condition. Frets are stock 6105’s and are in mint shape. The neck is Bill's 57 Soft V profile. The width is 1.663" at the nut and 2.025" at the 12th fret. The neck's thickness is .84" at the nut and .962" at the 12th fret; substantial and fuller than average but not baseball bat level. 

The weight is 7 lbs 14.4 oz, feels lighter than that and is perfectly balanced wether sitting or using a strap. The best sounding vintage strat's fall between 7.5 and 8lbs and this one hits the mark. Comes with original blonde G&G case with key and the stock Callaham 'Gilmour style' vibrato bar. One buckle on the case needs to have the lock slider moved to open it but otherwise functions fine, is lockable, etc.

This S Model by Callaham is a super rare example made by the best vintage parts maker in the business and in excellent shape overall. It is being sold 'As Is' with no returns, refunds or exchanges so please ask any and all questions before buying and thanks for looking!
