About This Listing

Still building at home due to Covid....pardon the possibility of animal crackers in our puctures.
Some cookies were consumed during the building of this instrument!

When Jason Pickard started formulating a design for a hollowbody electric guitar, the term "Electric Spanish" was inevitably the perfect choice.  As a guitar maker who spent over a decade building exclusively in the spanish classical guitar realm, Mr. Pickard is extremely passionate about adding an acoustic element to his electric guitar line.

"The main focus of my "Electric Spanish" model is the use of solid wood plates.  Quite often on production hollowbody electrics, they're constructed with layers of thin veneers that are glued in a mold to have arched tops.....so these are laminated tops, which is a real "no-no" for acoustic guitar makers.  I always heard horror stories that players were worried about feedback and I wondered if that was the reason that larger companies weren't using solid wood.  After all, most jazz archtop builders are carving out solid tops so we know that it works, I wanted this to be a Rock-N-Roll guitar hands down.  So there's a bit of "mojo" going on inside this guitar that allows me to get the tone from solid tops and backs, but not the feedback.  I'm very proud of this guitar, and I hope that guitarists will welcome the sound it provides."

The particular guitar pictured will be  available for purchase August 1st.  Cherry top and back, Cherry sides, Paduak neck, ebony fingerboard, 24.75" scale length, 3 custom wound Brian Porter "Ricochet" p-90 pickups.

While this guitar is currently available, Mr. Pickard prefers to build custom to a player's specs, so we can arrange a demo with this guitar and build your custom dream at no extra charge.  He currently has 4 spots left for custom builds in 2020.  Contact us for inquiries.

*You can hear this guitar in a live video on the Music49 Facebook page.......paired with a Bad Cat amplifier, played by Gary Ward.
